Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. A police officer does not have to ask for permission to measure tint density since it is something visible to the officer without a search. Since the window is visible, the officer can measure it without a warrant and issue a citation if they need to do so. Collection of evidence where everything is in plain sight is allowed without a warrant or consent of the owner as no search is occurring.
