What is legal window tint in Maryland?

The Maryland State Police released a helpful window tint guide for Maryland motorists.

Window Tint Regulations

Maryland regulates post manufacture window tint on all motor vehicles registered in Maryland.

The regulations are set forth in the Maryland Transportation Article and the inspection process for vehicles being registered in Maryland.

The regulations state that windows can have post manufacture window tint film added to allow 35% light transmittance.  Light transmittance is the amount of light going through glass.

All vehicles manufactured for sale in the United States come from the factory with some window tinting already in the regulated windows.  Most of the regulated glass on vehicles allow between 70-75% light transmittance.

Therefore, to meet the State requirement of 35% light transmittance you would need to apply 50% post manufacture window tint film.

Additionally, the brake light in the back window cannot be covered by tint.

Finally, the law prohibits red, yellow, amber and reflective (mirrored) post manufacture window tint film.
