NY auto inspections will now include check of tinted windows

December 01, 2016 06:41 AM

On Monday, Governor Andrew Cuomo approved an additional vehicle check during annual state inspections.

In June, the Senate passed a bill that would require auto inspection shops to check if a vehicle's windows are tinted with any material that lets less than 70 percent of the outside light to pass inside. Cuomo approved this new vehicle check Monday night. If windows are too dark, the entire vehicle will now fail an inspection.

The new law will go into effect on Jan. 1. We spoke with the owner of a local auto shop who says this is a change supported by police unions, but one that mechanics have issues with. 

In total, Cuomo vetoed 72 bills Monday night. See the full list here.
