  • California window tinting for UC vehicles

    Hi,

    I have heard that undercover (UC) vehicles are exempt from the CA tinted windows law and can get their front windows tinted. Has anyone heard of that or have anything to support that? I perused the vehicle code but couldn't find anything. Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    First off, what exactly do you mean? Do you mean marked, unmarked or undercover?

        Second, why do you care? Unless you're driving one I wouldn't worry about it.

          why did you double post this here in general and then in the CA forum?
          I'd rather be judged by 12 rather carried by 6.

          It should be noted that any and all post that are made are based on my own thought and opinions.

            I once took a new, unmarked vehicle to have its windows tinted. The person doing the work actually offered to tint it to whatever level I wanted, regardless of the law. I declined, because I didn't want the car to stand out anymore than any other vehicle.

              I wonder who you heard this from? I also wonder How this topic came up that you thought it necessary to ask here?

              SO, now that you know there is no exemption from the Vehicle Code, next time you see a UC cop car with dark window tint, you will know it is NOT really a UC police car.

                  I'll bet that right now you are real happy you came here and asked that question.

                    geez guys, relax please. I'm asking because I drive an unmarked UC vehicle for my agency. Recently the department that tints the windows for all UC vehicles said they wont do the front windows because it is illegal. However, the Commander of our unit told me it was not illegal. So I was just trying to get some other input from people who are also in law enforcement. For those of you who responded without sarcasm or who didn't try to make me feel like an idiot, thank you. This was a serious question I had related to what I felt was an investigative necessity and officer safety issue for the type of assignment I have.

                      Feel free to PM me your agency info since your profile was lacking the basics.

                        When I see what I think is a UC car with an illegal degree of window tint, I use the "police lights" app on my smartphone to pull them over.

                            Ok guys, just got an email today from DOJ. AB 2660 was just signed by the governor. This bill now allows UC vehicles to have front tint. Thanks for your assistance everyone.

                              I had an issue in my searches verifying what you said, so I went to the source.
