Have you ever wondered why there are rules about how dark you can tint your windows? There are many benefits to tinting your windows, both for you are your vehicle. So why can’t you maximize those benefits? The answer largely comes down to safety. There are many reasons why it is unsafe to block all light from coming through your car windows. Therefore, the laws concerning MA legal tint reflect that. At MTS Customs, our aim is to give you the most comfortable ride possible, but we don’t want you to get in trouble with the law.


Let’s look at the safety concerns that motivate the laws surrounding MA legal tint.



When we refer to visibility in this context, we mean both yours and other drivers’. It can be difficult to see through windows that are tinted very dark, especially at night. However, other drivers need to be able to see into and, more importantly, through your windows on the road. If you are driving on a multi-lane highway, you need to be aware of all the other drivers near you on the road. If you are about to pass someone in the middle lane, you want to be able to see if there is another car on their other side. You also need to be aware of what other drivers are doing on the road. for example, you want to know if another driver is on their phone or reaching for something in the backseat.


Law Enforcement

Police officers and other law enforcement officials need to be able to see inside your vehicle, both for their safety and to do their jobs. Just like other drivers, police officers need to be aware of other drivers’ behaviors so that they can drive safely. They also need to be able to see if drivers are engaged in illegal activities while in their cars.


Emergency Response

In the event of an accident, emergency responders such as firefighters and paramedics need to see inside your vehicle and assess the situation. In many cases, their only view in is through the windows. To give any potential victims of the accident the best possible care, emergency responders need to know their positions inside the car and if they have suffered any injuries that will make it difficult or dangerous to move them.
