Default How to tell if tint is legal?

Bought my 1st car that has tint on it. Bought it used so I don't have any paperwork on the tint.
Is there a way to tell if it is within the legal limit?

Didn’t think you could be pulled over for that. Hmm.

Never once gotten ticket for tint, had a statie make a comment on it once and that’s it. 20% on every car I’ve ever owned

Pulled over for tint and the cop tries to work in a cell phone charge. Wow.
I wonder if these cops ever listen to how ridiculous they sound.

Pretty much just say I work in the city in not so great but unavoidable areas, I've had my truck broken into on more than one occasion and paying your tint ticket is cheaper than the out-of-pocket replacement cost of my belongings or deductible.

I've received ONE ticket in the 10+ times I've been pulled over and saying that, and that one ticket was leaving Strats on a Saturday night. Go figure...

And FWIW, this shit dark.

I also do it for my CCW, the last thing I need is to have to take my gun off my person in a post office parking lot to abide by the law and have some lady see me with my gun in my hand at a post office and next thing I know I've got people in the Florida shooting thread trying to take away my rights

Plus it looks damn good... Until you're trying to back a trailer up a driveway in the dark and rain and cant roll your windows down.

Winfield likes to pull over for tint. A three officer town with nothing much going on, so...
