The International Window Film Association has filed an application for exemption with FMCSA to allow windows to the right and left of drivers to be tinted beyond current federal regulations.
A coffee cup collection, the weird case of Jabin Bogan, when patriotism turns to trouble and other interesting trucking industry items, plus Truck Gauges and Truck Gallery are featured.
FMCSA said that "truck drivers, fleet owners and managers can install a protective window film with over 70 percent net Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) on the side windows of trucks weighing over 26,001 pounds."
