Heyy guys, does anyone know what the legal limit is in Ontario when it comes to tint?

Is it 35% all around?

Thanks,

Mike

Their really isn't any legal limit. Basically all bets are off when u tint the drivers side window no matter how lite the tint is.

There's no actual % law in Ontario, it's up to the cops discretion. The general rule is that as long as they can see the driver, it's fine. You should be ok with 35%.

I see, well thats understandable, as long as they see the driver, its smooth sailing ... so 35% on the driver and passenger windows? how about the side windows and rear?

Honestly get what % you want it doesnt matter...if you are scare, just roll the windows down when you're passing by a cop...I've had friends go as low as 5%, no problem...

You can either go 35% front, 20% rear or 35% all around. Either of those will look good.

The law is only for the front windows. With the back ones, you can go as dark as you want.

I did 35% front and 23% rear. Going darker in the rear is harder for you to see your rear at night...especially when backing up

23% all around....touch wood no pulled over for that yet...
however, 23% is a bit dark when backin' up, or makin' left turns (to check blind spot) when the road isn't lid properly~

however, i love the 23% look durin' bright sunny days~

both @ 23%

Ontario law states:

Colour coating obscuring interior

(3) No person shall drive on a highway a motor vehicle on which the surface of the windshield or of any window to the direct left or right of the driver's seat has been coated with any coloured spray or other coloured or reflective material that substantially obscures the interior of the motor vehicle when viewed from outside the motor vehicle. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 73 (3).

Windows to afford clear view

74. (1) No person shall drive a motor vehicle upon a highway,

(a) unless the windshield and the windows on either side of the compartment containing the steering wheel are in such a condition as to afford the driver a clear view to the front and side of the motor vehicle; and

(b) unless the rear window is in such a condition as to afford the driver a clear view to the rear of the motor vehicle. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 74 (1).

Application of cl. (1) (b)

(2) Clause (1) (b) does not apply to a motor vehicle that is equipped with a mirror or mirrors securely attached to the motor vehicle and placed in such a position and maintained in such a condition as to afford the driver, otherwise than through the rear window, a clearly-reflected view of the roadway in the rear or of any vehicle approaching from the rear. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 74 (2).

i forgot what i did, unless i go look for the bill but it was like the 2nd darkest llumar pinnacle series tint (probably 15 or 20% all around, definately not the 5% limo)

i might be doing the front at 50% this summer just cause i did feel the heat difference when the sun was shining through the tinted side window vs the front windshield and you can feel it

at 50% front its not noticeable at all but provides the heat resistance

never had a problem so far and i see plenty of cops

I got 23% all around and got stopped a few weeks ago....for the ride program. The cop didn't seem to care and after a few standard questions he let me go. There were also 8 other cops watching, I'm sure one of them would have said something if it was a known issue or the law.

Apparently Private Detectives are allowed to tint their windshields...

And now you know, and knowing, is half the battle...

I find the only people who have problems with tint, exhaust, body kits, and other rice inspired car mods are those who beat around the city making noise, violating minor traffic laws, and generally acting like an idiot in plain view of police.

Those of us who realize the speeding, drifting, carving and generally have fun in a vehicle has a time and a place don't have any problems with the fuzz.

Downtown during rush hour, or rush hour on the highway is not the time or place for any of this.
If you don't stick out to police, they have no reason to pull you over.

But that being said Ontario law I believe is 35% to be safe.............

^^^
When on a highway at any time from one-half hour before sunset to one-half hour after sunrise and at any other time when, due to insufficient light or unfavourable atmospheric conditions, persons and vehicles on the highway are not clearly discernible at a distance of 150 metres or less, every motor vehicle other than a motorcycle shall carry three lighted lamps in a conspicuous position, one on each side of the front of the vehicle which shall display a white or amber light only, and one on the rear of the vehicle which shall display a red light only. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 62 (1).

You legally only need to have one rear brake light visible as per the HTA. Covering the rear window light is not an issue...
