Question from Patch Reader:
What about all these blackened car windows?! They seem so unsafe. You can't see the drivers and can't see if they see you! Aren't they illegal? If so, why isn't the law being enforced? Thanks.
Answer from CHP Spokesman Bradley Sadek:
We write so many tint or obstructed window tickets. The problem is people keep putting tint on! Any tint on the windows directly to the left and right of the driver is illegal. It is a major safety concern because it basically turns your windows into a big pair of sunglasses which you can't take off at night. It makes it very difficult to perceive vehicles and objects adjacent to your vehicle.
