Is Car Window Tinting Safe?

Car Alarm Miami

There are many advantages to adding a car tint to your vehicle but some people think that it can be dangerous to add a dark layer of film on the windshield. Here is when the big question comes in. Is car window tinting safe?

It is generally safe to add a car tint to your vehicle but then again, it has to be the right kind of tint. Note that car tints are available in different types and kinds. To ensure yourself of comfortable and hassle-free driving, it is important to use the right one for your car.

The issues related to car tints mostly concerns the heavy tints that are now being used on regular vehicles. The heavy tints are also called as the limo tints, and they are so dark that only 5% of the light can pass through it. This tint is generally used on the passenger side and back windows of limousines, but never on the driver side and the windshield. They use a much lighter tint for these parts.

A survey made in 2013 showed that 10% of the accidents that occurred that year involve vehicles with illegal window tinting. Most of them have those dark layers that keep drivers from seeing what’s in front of them. This is the reason why for other places, mostly in Canada, car tinting is banned.

If you want to add tint to your vehicle, it’s important that you choose the right shade. Stay away from the heavy tints as they can definitely impede your vision. You’re not supposed to put them on the driver side windows either, as you may not clearly see the vehicles passing by you through the side mirrors.

Adding a tint to your vehicle may also slightly change the way you drive. The best way to go about it is to familiarize yourself first with the new condition of your vehicle and make sure that you’re comfortable with it. Drive slowly around your neighborhood and have a good feel of the road before going out on the highway. Do note that road conditions are different during the day and at night. Dark tints may keep you from seeing pedestrians at night time so be very extra alert at night.

Your safety and comfort on the road are of paramount importance. Always keep in mind that the road is not entirely your own. You are sharing it with other people who are either walking on the streets or driving their own cars. You must follow the same driving laws, although this time, you have to be extra mindful. Because there’s a tint in your car, the people outside may not see your face so they won’t know for sure if you are acknowledging their road signals. In cases like these, you may have to use your hands or use some another way to communicate with the other driver or pedestrian.

Always be safe on the road. At the end of the day, it’s your patience, presence of mind, and driving skills that can keep collisions and accidents from happening. Every driver should be responsible, regardless if they have a car tint installed or don’t.
