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?
In Iowa you get a fixit ticket where you have to go to a repair facility and pay them to remove and/or sign off that tinting has been removed. This applies to out of state vehicles as well as Iowa registered vehicles. Otherwise it goes against the registration and you cannot renew until you have submitted the signed form.

I don't get how you guys are able to put 5-20% over the factory tint and still be able to see out of it... especially at night time.

I have 20% on the front sides, factory in the rear and 40% on the windshield... this provides enough blockage to keep heat out, partially eliminate the need for sun glasses, and also keep people from seeing in without being too dark and I can see out at night with no issues.

Windshield tint is not for everybody and usually very illegal... however, in most cases it gives a more uniform look, soft of an optical illusion to bring attention away from the dark side windows. Usually more visible in vehicles with lighter colored dashboards like my truck. I had 20% on the sides and nothing on the windshield on my Grand cherokee... light colored dashboard... it brings a lot of attention to the side windows especially on the GC as its much smaller in size.

i have some 35's on my front widows and love them. no problem seeing at night and i normally drive with me windows cracked which allows some light in and makes the tint look lighter.
