Nebraska Tint Laws

Nebraska tint laws were first enacted for vehicles in 2006, thus the tint laws in the state are still suited to most modern window tint products, but know that tint laws can change from year to year. To make sure your vehicle stays in line with Nebraska tint laws, it’s a good idea to know the exact VLT% (or visible light transmission percent, which effectively means how light or dark, i.e. how see through or how private, the glass is) and to know the current rules for VLT% for each window of varying vehicle type.

Car window film is a smart buy for anyone thinking in terms of both short-term performance and style of a vehicle as well as long-term value of the automobile. In Nebraska car tint adds privacy and enhances looks the same day it is applied and it reduces interior cabin temperatures even on the longest, hottest summer days, making the car cooler, more comfortable, and more cost effective based on battery and fuel savings in reduced AC use. In the long view, window film blocks 99% of the ultraviolet light that creates interior fading, discoloring, and cracks on upholstery and dash surfaces (and that can cause skin damage as well) so a vehicle will better maintain its appearance and its value.

Auto window tint is inarguably a great investment, but because illegal window tint in Nebraska can lead to hefty fines, you need to be sure your car window tint meets with current Nebraska tint laws.

% of Tint or Visible light transmission (VLT) is the measurement used to assess the amount of light passing through a piece of glass. This is the percent of visible light that passes through the film and glass to give you a net transmission percentage. The lower the VLT%, the darker the window.

Law Enforcement uses a tint meter which measures the Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) of window film and glass for illegal tint. 

Windshield: Several states allow medical exemptions for drivers or passengers who frequently travel in the vehicle. These exemptions usually require a licensed physician in that state to sign a waiver. Please visit your states .gov site for details.

If you’re driving a truck or SUV built in the last decade, chances are it’s equipped with factory tinted glass on all windows behind the front doors.

Many owners of vehicles like this often choose to only have the front windows tinted to match the back because they believe that they are already set with the rear windows.

UV Protection

While this factory tint improves the looks of the vehicle, and offers rear passengers some privacy, it does very little to help reduce the heat entering through the glass or protect them from the sun’s harmful UV rays. 

Heat Rejection

The same also goes for heat rejection. Some assume that the level of heat rejection they will on the front glass is already present in the rear glass because of the factory tint. Nothing can be further from the truth. Other than having the tinted look, these windows do very little to stop the heat.
