My sister just got a ticket for tinted windows in Illinois (Chicago)?

She drives an SUV and the windows came tinted - only in the back though (not in the front at all!), she bought the car in Illinois...is this really illegal?

Update:

she doesn't have a tint in the front (no tint on the windshield, or driver/passenger side windows)

    If this is only factory tint and there is no tint on the front drive and passenger windows than the officer was in error and she should contest this.

    the only way you can have the darkest tint (illegal tint) is if you have a tint permit, also known as a medical exemption form....pretty much only people with a medical condition like lupus or some other condition b/c they are sensitive to sunlight can have super dark tint and never get a ticket.

    also if you get migraines which happens when exposed to the bright sunlight when driving during the day you are allowed super dark tint but u need a permit.

    pretty much you fill out forms with your state department of motor vehicles and your state will need a signature from your doctor and the medical condition you have.

    you will never get a ticket for dark tint if you have a permit for your dark tint from your state which you can only get if your sensitive from sunlight like migraines or lupus or other medical conditions
