Dark windows OK on trucks, not cars

  • June 14, 2010 - 5:41 PM

A Waconia couple bought their new Lincoln sedan from a dealership in Texas about three years ago, but they never noticed the rear windows were a little darker than the front ones. In March, the husband got a ticket for having an illegal window tint. The couple didn't want to fork over $50 for the fine, especially after they learned the law is less restrictive for vans and pickup trucks.

"I still don't understand why we should have different regulations for different vehicles," the wife said. "There ought to be more uniform regulations."

Eventually, the couple got the ticket dismissed because they agreed to change the tint, which will cost them about $100.

Do you think window tint regulations should be the same for every vehicle?
