|Scougar||I thought it was real cool having dark tint in my Honda S-MX.... until I had to back up, downhill, in the dark on a pitch black country road. At the time I wasn't used to the vehicle... but I would advise against it if you didn't have a camera.|

Many states have a medical exemption, where if you are sensitive to bright light your optometrist can fill out a form to let you legally get darker than normal tint.
(NH does not have this.)
If you are just worried about heat or UV protection, you can probably go with 70% tint on the windshield or side windows and it would be very hard for an officer to know there was any tint applied.

in states (or provinces?) where you have an annual safety inspection, you might fail due to too dark of tint, or tint in places where it's not legal. your state (or province) probably has this info on a website somewhere.
e.g. i moved from another state (where i was allowed 20% everywhere but the windshield) to New Hampshire where i can only do 35% in the back (front row and windshield illegal for any tint level). i had to remove the tint in order to register my car.
personally, i've thought of 'rolling the dice' on this and putting the lightest tint possible on the front row (after having the back done to the legal levels). i really dislike sun hitting me from the side behind my prescription (sun)glasses and want something to take the edge off, at least. if i'm ever caught or called out for it, i would accept full responsibility and expect to have to strip the tint off.
if you get stopped for this i don't think an officer will accept any explanation. the law is the law, really. thankfully i think it would count as an equipment violation not a moving violation, so it wouldn't harm your license but you'd have a period of time to remediate the equipment violation or face (more of) a penalty.
( i'm not a lawyer and none of this should constitute legal advice; seek counsel if you have any further questions. :P )

Some people like/want/need privacy, for a multitude of reasons....
For me? Im planning on tinting all my windows, S/B to 5%, front and windshield to maybe 50... Legally, fronts and windshield can't be tinted, but I can justify it in my own mind based on needs I have... I can also explain the reason for the tint should I ever get pulled over for it.
