These laws may not be current and are often enforced differently by different PD's. In all cases, refer to you local authority for enforcement policies, current laws, rules or regulations. Your current state law is the final authority, not this website! The numbers represent the percentage of light transmitted through the tinted glass, so the lower the number, the darker the film allowed. Generally the films are sold as 5%(limo), 20%(dark), 35%(medium), 50%(light).
S.U.V.s often have different regulations, which are not listed here.

if this is going to be a sticky,
#1 yellow font is a no no
#2 the top needs to be fixed so you know which % is for what part of the car

not sure if that information is correct or not kind of hard to understand with the last number of inches or AS1. For Michigan I know the law is as follows

Windshield | 4" down from top | Any %
Front Door Windows | 4" down from top | Any %
Back Door/Coupe Windows | Any amount | Any %
Back Window | Any amount | Any %

Other limitations include that the film be any solid color as long as it is non reflective. Also it can be net or film, it doesn't matter

Some other Michigan residence may argue that you are not limited to 4" in the front as long as it is 35% or less. This is not true. There was a vote last year to try and get that passed but it failed. So technically anymore than 4" from the top is illegal. On the other-hand most cops will let you get off with 35% but some are dicks and will make you remove it or get a ticket

Rick, he gave your site credit so I don't see why this is an issue. if you still want your information removed, let me know. We'll replace it with a reliable source: http://www.iwfa.com/PreProduction_co...statelaws.html

^^^^

Also a list such as that is more than likey not copyrightable. It is just a compilation of facts that anyone can obtain. Unless it is unique in some way other than in it's orgainzation it probably isn't copyrightable. Phone book companies have argued this fact for years in court and time and time again the directory of a phone book has been held not to be copyrightable. Even when the comany copies another's directly with fake information designed to detect copying, the courts still say no dice.

I do not believe you can copyright this text, that would be like saying you made it up! And if it is made up, then it's of no use to anyone on this site or anyone that comes across your site. If the information can be found by any member of the public by going to State Websites or consulting with their local Police Departments you cannot claim to have a copyright on this text.
