Window tinting may seem that it serves the aesthetic purpose alone, but in reality, having your windows tinted will help prevent these five dangers to your health, stuff and overall well being. In fact, not having your car windows tinted does not only make your property less pretty, but it brings in some dangers for yourself and your family as well.

Different factors may affect or cause a vehicular accident, but tinting your vehicle is one of the best precautionary measures you can do to be prepared for anything.

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of road accidents. A lot of drivers may disregard that the sun’s brightness outside to be one of the reasonswhy they have a hard time driving. Driving with the sun directly on your face is not just an annoyance, it can be a potential threat to your safety once you’re on the road. Having no window tint can lead to accidents on the road.

Too much exposure from the sun’s rays can even cause momentary blindness. The brightness while you’re driving can lead to the loss of vision. This is called Retinal Migraine, an eye condition that causes brief attacks of blindness or visual problems like flashing lights in one eye. Typically, the vision will be absent for 20 minutes or less. Others may experience their vision partially losing, slowly blurring or dimming. This is caused by the blood vessels of the eye suddenly constricting or narrowing, reducing the blood flow to the eye, due to excessive heat or too much brightness or exposure to bright light.

The sun’s UV rays affect your health more than you can imagine. Majority of people often disregard the harmful effects of the sun to their health because of lack of knowledge, or because they tend to neglect sun protection. Well, in fact, the sun’s harmful rays are the culprit of some of the most notorious medical issues today, such as skin cancer, various immune system issues, and eye problems. Some even believe the misconception that they are protected as long as they are under some shade, inside their vehicle, for example.

The truth is, light bounces and reflects, and it can reach you while you are on the driver seat or passenger seat of your car. What’s worse is that people fail to realize that driving for hours is considered a prolonged exposure to sunlight, regardless whether they can feel the heat or not, even if it is snowy or cloudy that day.

Car window tint will shield your eyes and prevent glare from all sources of extreme and blinding light. By installing car tints, you protect yourself and your driving companions from possible road accidents because of the sun’s brightness and rays.

Tints can act like sunscreens and sunglasses to protect your eyes and your skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

In the unfortunate event of a car accident bare car windows tend to shatter in to more, little pieces of glass compared to tinted windows. Window tint covers the entire pane of your glass, which can come in handy if it ever breaks during an accident. Some incidents report that more than the blow of the impact, shattered car windows also cause sufficient damages and injuries during such unfortunate events.

The tint can act like a bandage by holding shattered glass together when it breaks, reducing the risk of loose shards that can cause harm to the driver or passengers.  Moreover, you should consider your valuables security is also at risk if you don’t have your car windows tinted. Having no car window tint would make you vulnerable to car theft, especially if leaving valuables inside the car became your habit. Without window tint, the things inside your locked car in a parking lot can be a window display for thieves.
