Re: Tint Bust

LAME - Good luck, hopefully they go easy on you, which is unlikely since this has turned into a revenue generating fiasco. I can empathize that the police want to be able to see into your Jeep for their protection if they pull you over....but if you aren't doing anything wrong, they have no reason to stop you, and no reason to see inside your Jeep.

Also, are people less likely to be shady in AZ? - They can have limo tint on the front windows, or maybe their troopers have xray vision.

When I was pulled over for mine, I was traveling 44mph in a 45mph, and had all 4 windows down (front's were up 1.5 inches to match the rears) - State Patrol said they pulled me over for my clear front license plate cover and wanted my to roll up my windows so he could check my tint. The state is in sad shape if they are pulling people over for clear plate covers to collect a fine.

Re: Tint Bust

Just go to your family doctor and tell them that sunshine gives you a migraine. I did it and my Dr. gave me a wink wink nod nod and gave me a medical exemption pass.

Re: Tint Bust

Joe's hit the nail on the head! Same thing here. Towards the end of the financial year, the roads are crawling with cops looking to bust people for anything.

You can go as dark as you like with tints here, as long as it's from the b pillar back. Front windows are technically illegal. My front windows are tinted but it's fairly subtle and the cops never notice. Windshields are totally out though.

Re: Tint Bust

joe would know!

ive had my share of tint tickets. i just roll em down if/when i feel its necessary.

since im here. my buds G37 just got raped in nj last weekend. talking tint ticket for each and every thing on his car. and the worst part about it was he got pulled over actually exiting the court house for exhaust notes. lol i felt soo bad for the dude. he kept saying bro i cant catch a break in this thing.

i told him not to paint his car that orange color- lol. its a cop magnet and half. just the color is telling the cops...Oohh, i bet he got somehting not kosher in there, lets pull him over and search his car..if we dont find anything we can always say its his tints and nail him for every tint he has" LMFAO!

Re: Tint Bust

I got caught once for my tints near the 59th bridge. Was traffic and 6-7 cops lounging around near a food cart spotted me and decided to signal me to pull over. One came up to me and ask me to roll down my window(which was 1/4 down already)while the others surrounded my car. took a good 2 mins inspecting it before asking me roll down my windows to see if anything suspicious was in the back. Tint machine said 10-15% and gave me a ticket. Officer even said im cutting you some slack, i coulda gave u tickets for the rear also. I said You sure? cause last i know u can have the rear as dark as u want in ny. Officer didnt say anthing else except move along. lol.

No point in arguing/whining, its illegal and i got caught.sucks. Just pay the fine and be on my way. Just lucky they didnt ticket me for the plate covers,tinted tails & stillens.

Re: Tint Bust

ive avoided tinting my windows cause the nys troopers are dicks about it, they pull people over constantly for it here. also cops in the suburbs are bad with it too, i want to tint my fronts but my cars black and i just know its a ticket waiting to happen so i havent done it yet.

can you tint tails if their led? i didnt realize that gets you out of the ticket

In CA you can't have any tint of any kind on the tail lights. I'm going to court for it next month (also for front window tint) I'm gonna slightly tint the new LED tails after. They are super bright and the cop said they are more likely to look away if the red shows through really well. (I call bs on that but still haha)

Re: Tint Bust

I've been lucky enough with both the GTO(5% all around and low "eyebrow") and the Jeep(30% fronts). When I get pulled over I can hand them a tint script and be on my way. If the trooper wants to be a dick, they will call the doctors office and try to see what its for or if I'm an actual patient at said clinic. May help that my gf is an optometrist at the particular clinic..

In the GTO I generally don't whip the script out till the they ask, cause it usually gives them an excuse to start searching for a million other things to write me up for.
