Seriously dude, I'd hope your logic skills were better than this considering where you work.
The golf ones are great too, and most of them look pretty good. They're full wraparound and thus block out pretty much all possible light.

factory smoked glass has the tinted worked into the glass, as in they added a bit of dye to it. tinted glass is just a plastic film on top of the glass. they have different properties.

We used to tint @ our shop back in the day and we called up our local rcmp rep and icbc friend aswell for a little question and answer period about this and they mentioned that though its quiet often for the safety for the rcmp officer, both had brought up the fact that tint is applied to a window with a type of adhesive and that incase of a accident the window would not break, and or not break with a window break tool because the window would be held together with the tint... Dunno how much this plays into real life situations, but was the answer we got..
good luck though..

It still shatters the same way, the only thing the tint film does is stop it from shattering all over the driver.

Officer safety is a concern, but easily addressed with a strict 70% VLT policy.

I don't understand why driver visibility is so important when many states in the US with millions more people than our entire country have no front tint laws at all and everything works fine. No you can't see the driver, but you can see the damned car and what it's doing. Meanwhile these drivers enjoy full privacy and sun and heat protection of their car interiors.

I guess when you think about it - all those crashes that involved someone driving into something with the front of their vehicle while at the same time looking through a perfectly clear, untinted windshield.

Clearly I am pro-tint, but even I see the clear benefit of being able to see the driver through the front side window. If you don't think being able to see other drivers is important, perhaps you should re-visit your approach to defensive driving.

Defensive driving? No one under the age of 25 does that anyway in Metro Van...

The officer killed by someone "hiding behind the tint" is an isolated incident and most likely could be attributed to many other things besides tint. Sad whenever a PO is killed in the line of duty but by that logic a lot of things should be outlawed.

45 out of the 50 states allow some form of front window tint and 5 out of 10 provinces do as well.

Police and government vehicles also seem to have the luxury of having front window tint. ERT Vehicles, DFO Vehicles (with BC Plates)... Also flip your badge out and you get away with it... the number of personal cars that police officers drive that have been tinted by the people I know in the industry is quite high.

If driver visibility was truly the issue, then the new S Class MB's should be pulled off the road because the photo-chromatic glass they have is almost opaque in the day and night time. Hell even my touareg has about a 70-80% tint grade from the factory (on the fronts).

Simple fact is there is not a single study that supports claims that front window tint is dangerous. If there is I would love to see it.

From what I heard though, those C-Lai masks are illegal to a certain degree due restriction to see the driver's face.

Please correct me if I was misleaded.

i got pulled over because of my 35% front tint, just warned me and let me go, i asked the officer why its exactly illegal and he paused for a second and said that front tint cant be observed from outside of car and i could be a gang member, pretty sure theres more reasons than that lol

You asked for an example where someone was hurt because of having front tint. I gave you a good one. Now go sit in the corner and STFU.

Time to bump an old thread.

If front side tint is hazardous to life, health and safety, why do many jurisdictions permit front side tint with a medical note instead of simply insist on sunglasses?

Also, what about some new cars coming out with laminated front side glass? The glass would hold together much the same as tinted glass but that's somehow considered safer?

Personally, I'd like to be able to see the driver of the other car so I can see if he/she is looking my way before I proceed if I have the right of way, especially when someone is turning right and I'm going straight.

I fully agree, I hate not being able to see the driver. As I said before, a strict 70% tint law would allow this.

Soundy, you're not approaching this logically. Would you just do anything the government tells you to do?
