Clovis police crack down on tinted windows

Clovis police are cracking down on tinted vehicle windows that obstruct viewing and are a safety hazard, the department said Tuesday.

Police said they’ve seen an increase in tinted windows in Clovis, and want to remind the public that state law prohibits “any object or material placed, displayed, installed, affixed or applied upon the windshield or side or rear windows.”

The Department warns that especially at night views can be obstructed, and heavily tinted windshields make it difficult to identify suspects in criminal cases or victims in accidents. The tint itself can alter window quality and can lead to more serious injuries, police say.

Clovis police will be issuing fix-it tickets to those driving with illegally tinted windows.
