Gentry targets window tint
Drivers will get a grace period before officers start writing tickets.
Wednesday, December 29, 2010
Sgt. Clay Stewart of the Gentry Police Department demonstrates the use of a tint meter on side window glass last week. State law requires front seat side windows to allow a minimum of 25 percent of the light to pass through. Rear side windows must allow 10 percent of light to pass through. Many windows are tinted too dark and restrict vision to the point of causing a driver not to be able to see other traffic or pedestrians.
