I'm a bit confused about the terminology - you state:zeddy wrote: ↑ He got it measured today at 26%. Law is that it needs to be 30%.
But I keep finding this.... Any vehicles built after January 1, 2017 cannot have any aftermarket window tinting on their windshield. The front door windows cannot be tinted more than 30% darkness. There are no new regulations for the rear windows.
His car is a 2012. Cop did not measure tint. Previous owner tinted the windows and was never pulled over.
If it won’t be a hit on his insurance he will pay the fine and remove the tint.
Thanks for answering. I’m just super frustrated.

When I check the current law in Ontario (it varies by province) and forgetting about the pre 2017 laws, it states that
1. For the windshield, the maximum opacity allowed is 30% and
2. No number specified for the front side windows, but if up to 30% opacity is allowed for the windshield, it logically can't be any less.
So when they measured the side tinted windows at 26%, I assume that was 26% opacity which would be perfectly legal (and not 26% luminous transmittance or 74% opacity which would be quite dark and obviously not legal.
