As of the date wrote this article, 12/20/2011, Utah Law does permit individuals to tint the windows on their vehicles.   However, there are some limitations to the tint that can be installed on each window.  For safety reasons, windshields are barred from having window tint installed below the AS-1 line or 4 inches down from the top of the windshield, whichever is lower.   Some cars have an AS-1line depicted on the windshield; this shows where most individual’s vision would start being impaired by window tint.

In addition to the regulations for tint on the windshield, the law prohibits the installation of tint on the two front windows that would allow less than 43 percent light transmittance—this is so the driver’s vision is not impaired.  If you have ever had to back up a vehicle with an extremely dark tint, you know firsthand how dark window tint can impair your vision.  Other than the Windshield and two front windows, all other windows can be as dark as you would like them.

One related law drivers should keep in mind is that both outside rear-view mirrors must be installed on the vehicle if they choose to tint the windows behind the driver’s seat.  Please feel free to comment on this blog or email if you have any additional questions about Utah Window Tint laws.
