    Super secret RI inspection question


    Window tint is evil according to RI. If you know a guy, who might know a guy, consider PM'ing a guy.

    Or something.

    With the camera's they have installed at all inspection stations in RI its going to be tough to find someone willing to risk the fine/there licence. Times have changed unfortunately and inspections in RI are very tough to get "around"

    Massachusetts is the same way now. Car that passed last year wouldn't pass anywhere this year cuz the tint was too dark.

    I'm prepared to peel it but I really don't want to.

    I wondered why so many “cars” became “SUV’s.” One reason seems to be “light trucks” can haz tinted glass.

    There used to be a form you can get from RMV that your doctor can endorse if you have eye issues.

    Re: Super secret RI inspection question

    Why would you do this if it weren’t an actual medical need?

    In RI, you're not getting tint darker than 29% without a medical need. The inspection stations have been required to test for it since Jan 2016.

    Going to take a wild guess and say that the person likes the appearance and/or other benefits of having tinted windows that would fall outside the legal requirements in RI without the medical waiver........

    Pretty much. I have 35%, nothing crazy. Helps keep the car cooler in the summer and looks nice as well.

    I first did tint for looks.. but as I got more cars for the family and have been lazy to get the fronts tinted.. say on the minivan. There is a considerable difference without tint that makes the fronts hotter. If the minivan did not have tints in the rear it would be piping hot inside! Some day I'll get that tint on the fronts..
