Window Tints can Protect Against Break-Ins and Other Car Crimes
Window tints do so much more than just look good.
Tinted windows redirect up to 99% of harmful UV rays, regulate internal temperatures, protect against dangerous weather, as well as keep your car safe from car crimes and theft.
And, it’s this last benefit that we’re going to examine in this article today.
Here, we’ll discuss 3 ways in which car window tints can keep you and your car safe from criminal activity.
- Window tints are a deterrent to auto thieves.
It’s widely assumed that robbers and thieves are less likely to go through with a hustle if they can’t know the full scenario they are getting themselves into.
Put yourself in their shoes for a moment. Imagine you’re looking for your next car target. You see one car with transparent windows, clearly an expensive watch inside, and no lock on the steering wheel. In front, is another car with darkly tinted windows. You can’t know for sure if that front car has anything of value in it, and you can’t be sure if there are any further security traps inside.
Which car would you choose?
It’s pretty obvious what the answer would be. And, it’s pretty obvious that it’s the tinted windows that swayed that choice.
In other words: if a criminal can’t see into your car, they may be less likely to choose it as their next target.
- Window tints protect your personal information.
It’s not uncommon to leave papers, pictures, and/or other personal information in the car. And, glimpsed by the wrong person, you could have yourself some identity theft issues.
Not to mention, criminals can gain a lot more information from the small daily items kept in the car than even legalized documents. Think: car seats, baby toys, sports gear, gym bags, and other day-to-day accessories often left lying around.
Luckily, tinted windows can help protect against such dubious intents. Tinted windows let you see out, while keeping others from seeing in. Which, keeps criminals from gaining insight into your daily routines and personal information. Whether you go for a lighter or darker tint, strangers will have a much harder time peering in through the glass.
Tinted windows keep your personal life personal and out of the eyes of anyone who may use that information for the worse.
- Window tints can reduce the risk of injury from glass.
If you’re sitting in the car while a criminal tries to break in, one of the most dangerous aspects is the shattered glass that could hit you if the window is battered through.
Fortunately, tinted windows can protect against this health risk.
When you get your car windows tinted, you’re getting a ceramic coating placed on the inside of your windows. This coating or film then bolsters the window from the inside, giving it extra support.
So first, it makes breaking through the glass much harder for criminals to accomplish. And second, if the glass does break, it most likely won’t go as far and shatter into as many pieces as it otherwise might without the support of a ceramic film.
Tinted windows are not just for looks- they’re for safety.
