We the People of North Carolina, would like to change the North Carolina Tint law from 35% to 15%. This change in Law will reduce the concentration of Ultraviolet (UV) rays that  enter a personal owned Vehicle (POV). In turn this will reduce the chances for skin cancer while driving with a high UV index.

"Nearly 53 percent of skin cancers in the US occur on the left, or drivers’, side of the body, according to a new study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology. The distribution pattern supports the theory that automobile drivers in the US are exposed to more ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the left, through the driver’s side window, and that ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation causes more damage than formerly believed. Cars’ side windows allow 63 percent of UVA to penetrate, “These [new] results may suggest that perhaps UVA plays a more important role in skin cancer development than previously thought,” said Susan T. But- ler, MD, coauthor of the study. This study reinforces previous research showing that UVA does indeed play a role in skin cancer  ( summer 2010(vol.27,No.2) www.skincancer.org )."
