Windows immediately to the right and left of the driver that have less than 25% light transmission will fail inspection, regardless of the year model of the vehicle.
Correct, and i think 35% in the back. Doesn't change, what i said, though. Not to say people aren't having it done over the limit but that the limit may be darker than you think (and depends on the type of tint).

They don't want anything blocking plate readers at toll roads and used for intelligent transportation systems.

A while back the cops were ticketing for plate frames (like the kind used to show college support) which was possible under a very technical reading of the law and people got really upset so someone changed the law.

I wanted 20% on my car,
because of that law, I have 20% on my back windows and 35% in the front (can't find 25 or 30%)
so I know exactly that it looks like

The lower the % is the darker the tint. Front side windows need to be at least 35% and the back can be darker. I've had cars as low as 16% and never had any issues but it is a reason cops can use to pull you over. Then you have to find a place that'll pass your car for inspection if it doesn't meet the requirements.

If you have black leather and/or a dark color interior, your window tint will also appear to look darker.

Yes some block toll cameras from viewing the plate.
