If AS1 or specified inches appears, the AS-1 is assumed and only the number at inches down appears. ( Note: NR is used in lieu of “No, Any, or specific percentage” when the law permits unspecified” non-obstructive” or “transparent” tinting materials. In these cases, the legality of tinting inevitably depends upon each officer’s discretion.)
