Current New Hampshire law forbids tinting your car windows. HB 227, sponsored by Rep. Ryan Smith, aims to change that.
HB 227 would specifically allow tinting on windows but not the windshield.
Supporters of window tinting argue that it gives drivers privacy and keeps cars cool in the heat.
The New Hampshire Department of Safety and the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police oppose window tinting because it makes it more difficult to assess potential danger when approaching a vehicle.
The House of Representatives passed a bill to allow window tinting in 2016, but the Senate killed the bill.
