I know a guy that owns a dropped chebbie with 24's and has literally 5% on his windows and back window, and then 35% on the windshield all the way down. It's flat out stupid.
That is exactly what I do to all of my vehicles. Keeps out the heat and the front glass definitely cuts out the glare form the sun during the day and retards with hi-beams or maladjusted headlamps at night.

Well, it wasn't an option in the poll, but I went with 30% on the front side windows, and 15% for the front strip.

I think that the darker it is, the better it looks, period. But ANY tint on the front windows is illegal here, so I'm taking a risk just by doing the 30%.
It looks pretty good next to the factory tinted back windows, and I'm hoping I'll get away with it.... haha.

...Any darker, and I know I'd be getting pulled over all the time!

15% plus Eyebrow - Illegal in this state. That is, unless you have a prescription from a Dr like me

Got pulled over in Kingston Ontario Canada and got fined with a ticket because my tint is too dark. I understand the ontario traffic law about tinting and it is vague.
"No person shall drive a motor vehicle upon a highway where the surface of the windshield or of any window of the vehicle has been coated with any colour spray or other colour coating in such a manner as to obstruct the driver's view of the highway or any intersecting highway."
That seems open to interpretation!

My question is:

What happens if I pay the ticket but do not remove the tint? How would they know I didn't comply and changed it for a lighter shade?
The cop told me I could get it re-tinted a lighter shade.
There was no grading % taken so no way they would know the exact tint at the time of the ticket.
Also, is this ticket readily accessible or viewable on my record if I get pulled over again for something else?
Would they ticket me again or something worst?

See vehicles pulled over all the time on Interstate 80 for tinted front windows and/or windshields. Usually out of state plates, as most of us locals know better (at least the ones over 21 that have been stopped before).
