For some people, tinting windows is only meant to make their cars look cool. You probably have more reasons for doing this on yours. Tint could also keep your car cool during sunny days and reduce glare. However, the greatest benefit of tinting is for safety.
Protection During an Accident
In case of a direct impact during an accident, there is a high risk of shattered glass flying and hitting you or the other passengers in the vehicle. Glass shards can cause lacerations and eye injuries. Passengers might also fly out of the car and die in case a shattered window creates an opening.
Tint provides a protective layer that ensures that glass doesn’t shatter after breaking. This could reduce cases of cuts from accidents. It could also protect passengers from intruding debris and ensure that airbags perform properly. Moreover, it could make the work of a tow truck easier when moving your car from the accident scene.
Keep Your Valuables Safe
Tinted windows can hide expensive items such as cameras, GPS units, and sound systems that are in your car. Would-be thieves can easily see these items from the outside and target to steal them. Keep your valuables safe by tinting the car’s window instead of installing an expensive alarm system.
In a matter of seconds, a thief can shatter your car window and grab your valuables. In the process, you could sustain injuries if your windows are unprotected. However, a tinted window can slow down access to your car’s interior. Also, if your vehicle is vandalized, the intact glass fragments make it easy for a tow truck to move it.
