Window Tinting in IL

Just read this on the Illinois DMV website...not too happy! Getting my side windows tinted was the one modification I wanted to make as soon as I could.

Quote:

I know you read the last post. But it is a legal now, obviously depending on the vehicle and the amount of tint. But I just did 35% on all 5 windows. Now the only issue is Chicago. They are still ticketing people for no reason, even above the state law. So avoid the city of Chicago. But get your windows tinted, I love it. It's only been 2 weeks, but very happy I did it.
