Exclamation Tint Bust

So, I live in Hartford, CT for 3/4 of the year during school, and for those of you who don't know, parts of Hartford are very dangerous in terms of crime. I was just relaxing in my apartment this weekend, and I couldn't help but hear police sirens almost every minute. Sirens go by all the time, but this was more than usual. I look outside, and there are literally 15+ police cars up and down the street, all with someone different pulled over. I could hear the conversation of the nearest one, and the police officer told the driver that the tints were illegal. The cop then took out some type of tint-measurement meter, had the driver put the window up a couple inches, and measured the tint. He then wrote a ticket, and took off to find another one. This went on for a solid hour. I couldn't believe it, of all things a window tint bust! They were also noting if there were tinted frames/covers over the cars license plates (also illegal in CT). I personally have 25% tints on the front windows, and I was happy I wasn't out driving. I've had the tints 2 years, and have been reluctant not to get pulled over/ticketed. Anyone here been busted for their tints??

I used to deliver mail in Hartford, CT. For at least a year. Place is nuts. I heard a lot of "remarks" about being the only white person on the block. Sucks everyone got a ticket.

Re: Tint Bust

I got nailed driving through one of the more expensive neighborhoods in NE Ohio...I was not speeding, or otherwise drawing attention to myself other than my ride was friggin gleaming. I paid the ticket, and installed less dark tint. This was years ago in my TJ. It hasn't deterred me from getting tint around here. I'm just aware that at any time I could get yanked and get a ticket. It's a risk you take. Not blaring music or doing other dumb $hit helps. In a bad area, I could see how they'd be more strict about it.

I agree with you, but this was the only time i've ever seen someone pulled over for tints!

This surprises you?

When a city is in the red they buckle down on the motorists.

Re: Tint Bust

Yep. It's the same way in MI. I've been ticketed a few times, usually just pay the fine and go on with my day.

Re: Tint Bust

Here in Lincoln it's a secondary offense so you have to get pulled over for something else first, but I have never heard of someone here getting a ticket for their tint..they are pretty lenient about it. Sucks for most of you other guys!

I was pulled over for a clear license plate cover and they checked my tint. I'm at 15% on my front windows and would have gotten a ticket if a car hadn't flown by us at 2x the speed limit. Trooper threw my id at me and ran to his squad. This was in Minneapolis, MN.

Re: Tint Bust

I was pulled over late summer for tint...and I'm in S FL! Everyone has tint down here, but apparently mine is darker than it should be.Got a warning, so all was good! Now both cars have state of FL exemption certs so I can paint the windows black if I want and there's nothing the popo can do! Just had the windshields done this month too.

They make you pull the tint? I'd rather pay the fine. One of my buddies had to peel the tint from the window before the trooper would let him leave...that was Wisconsin though.
