What's the legal tint percentage in Ontario?
Ahhhh...very popular question. Couple years ago it was said (and some drivers still have the same understanding on various forums) that Ontario has vague laws about the percentage of tint applied to your windows. That has changed. Officially the O.A.C.P. (Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police) has published a resolution on 2001-01, that "total light transmittance of 35 percent is acceptable" because "a light transmittance below the 70 percent level increases accident risks in poor light conditions since it reduces the visibility of low contrast objects at a distance, increases the time needed to react, and hinders communication between road users".
