While we want our vehicles to be safe when we drive, which could also be one of the main reasons why we had our car window tinting Woodend installed, but also we want to get the best possible vision when we drive our vehicles.
Any reduction in visibility because of our poor light conditions may also result in having our car and ourselves in danger. Tinted windows in cars can reduce your visibility when you drive especially if you do not follow the state and territory regulations regarding window tinting.
For most states in Australia, a motor vehicle is only allowed 35% visual light transmission or VLT for tints. This means that only 35% VLT should be block and 65% of light should come through. In most states, the front side, back side and rear window are allowed more than 35% VLT while the windshield’s uppermost corner can get 10% VLT.
Make certain that your vehicle is not below 30% VLT since this will make your vehicle unsafe to drive on the road and you might get in trouble with the authorities.
What if your vehicle already has a factory-tinted glass?
As most car manufacturers have already made their new vehicles fitted with tinted window glass, you may be confused if you can still need one. For most new cars with readily installed window tints, the tint is mostly very light and would even look clear.
To make sure if your car windows have tint already, take a piece of white paper and place it on the opposite side of the glass. If it has a slightly grey, brown or green colour when viewed, then the windows are already tinted. You can still place tints on them by using special grades of a film which when used could still get the allowed 35% VLT.
