INTRODUCED

HB 1228 -- Window Tinting on Motor Vehicles

Sponsor:  Surface

Under current law, no person may operate a vehicle with vision--
reducing material applied to a windshield, sidewing, or window
located to the left and right of the driver which reduces
visibility from within or without the motor vehicle.  Use of
vision-reducing material with 35% light transmission is
permitted only with a physician's prescription.

This bill permits any person to use vision-reducing material
with  a light transmission of 35% or less, plus or minus 3%, and
a luminous reflectance of 35% or more, plus or minus 3%.

The Department of Public Safety may issue a permit to any person
to operate a motor vehicle with less light transmission and more
luminous reflectance when a physician indicates a person has a
physical disorder.  The permit will alter the tinting limits
pursuant to the physician's prescription.
