Got tint?

I’ve used umbrellas before, but never like this!

I snapped this photo a couple of months ago
on a warm, sunny, summer day in San Diego. After a delicious authentic ramen noodles meal, my friend and I headed over to the 99 Ranch Market in Clairemont to pick up some Asian dessert.

We pull into the parking lot and parking spaces were definitely limited. As one became available, we pull in immediately — right next to THIS car!

My friend and I looked at each other with confusion and burst out in laughter.

There’s a fine line between creativity and efficiency. This is absolutely creative! It’s also effective (not necessarily efficient)… for a short period of time. You can’t drive around with an umbrella hanging out of your window!

We took a closer look into the car and realized a child was taking a nap (mom was just a few feet away, watching me take pictures of her car… awkward).

Today, I look back and understand that they aren’t aware of the benefits of window tints. Tons of people get their car windows tinted simply for the appearance. Others want the darkest shade of tint possible for privacy reasons.

Take this moment to educate yourself.

Here are 7 ways you’ll benefit with your car windows tinted:

1. Decreases heat

Window film can offer up to 63% solar energy rejection. As residents of San Diego, this is great because, as you may know, San Diego is nearly always sunny.

2. Reduces fading

The two primary causes of fading is heat and exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Automotive window film blocks 99% or more of harmful UV rays.

3. Diminishes health risks

Since window film blocks out 99% of UV rays, this is very beneficial for the health of your skin and eyes — reducing your chances of skin cancer, cataracts, and other sun-related health problems.

4. Cuts hazardous glare

Glare from the sun or headlights at night can blind your vision when on the road.

5. Increases safety and security

In case of glass breakage, window film will hold the shards of glass together to reduce your chances of getting hurt.

6. Enhances appearance

Look cool, feel cool.

7. It’s fast and easy
