GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — The Green Bay Police Department issued an advisory about tinted windshields in their final Facebook post for April.

While tinted windows can help cool your car, Green Bay Police said windows that are tinted too dark can make it difficult to see road hazards and pedestrians while driving.

There are also rules in Wisconsin that regulate how much drivers are permitted to tint their windows. Green Bay Police said absolutely no tint is allowed on windshields below the AS1 line.

Additionally, tint on the driver and passenger side windows in the front of the car must allow at least 50% of light to pass through the window. For the back of the vehicle, which is any window behind the driver's door, at least 35% of light must be allowed through.

Each window that violates the rules counts as a separate violation, meaning the same car could get four different tickets.

"If your windshield is tinted, expect to get stopped!" Green Bay Police said.
