Hey MTPD! When is Window Tinting Legal in PA? - Here's Your Answer!

MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, WINDOW TINTING IS ILLEGAL IN PA!

Manheim Township Police officers are often asked about the legality of window tinting on vehicles.  We recognize that window tinting is very popular as it keeps vehicles cooler from the heat of sunlight, provides privacy, and allows an owner to customize their vehicle.  Unfortunately, doing so is illegal in most instances.  We have created the attached window tinting fact sheet to help vehicle owners better understand the law to include what they can and cannot do with their vehicles.

Remember: Do not allow businesses who apply window tinting to vehicles to convince you that their product is legal – it isn’t.  If your vehicle has window tinting upon it and it is being used upon a roadway, you CAN be charged with an offense.  As always, drive safely upon the roadways!
