Do you tint windows?

I know there is some controversy surrounding tinted windows. In some states, cops will pull over cars that may in fact have been speeding, but also just happen to have their windows tinted. I don’t know if they were targeted or not, but there is a lot of speculation that that is the case.

In fact, last June in Aurora, IL, a story out of the Daily Herald, said police where cracking down “on overly tinted windows.”

Apparently, the reasoning was that they caused an inability to see inside the vehicle which put officers in unnecessary danger and they figured it’s also a “hazard to motorists to not be able to make eye contact with another driver,” the story said.

I know there are different rules for each state about window tinting.

That’s why I’m asking you if you do window tinting services at your detail operation. If not, and it’s allowed in your state, why don’t you do it. If you do, is it a profitable service?
