Ever gotten out of a "dark tint" citation from highway patrol?

On my way home today, got pulled over for having illegal tint... Anyone else ever gotten cited for that and managed to not have to replace the tint? I dont want to go lighter.... He said I had 16%... According to Nevada Highway Patrol, the legal limit is 35% +/- 7%... frustrating.

I did... BS reason to pull me over. I went to court, they walked us (all with the same issue) out side, we stood there and walked back up. I would however just pull it off and fix it.... not worth the hassle.

I have been lucky to not get pulled over. Although they are usually not pulling people over for that kind of stuff in Kansas.

I went to an optometrist and got a note stating the bright light affected my vision, it worked when I showed it to the cop.

Thankfully no ... the limit in OH is 50% and I'm running 15% tint. I usually roll my windows down if I see a cop checking people out though.

yeah, I roll mine down too. Nice to have the auto down to both windows on the driver's side, makes it easy.

I've been pulled over tons for tiny. Everytime I was pulled over I had my windows down. They made me roll them up so they could test the tint. I laughed because it's legal. And then they tried to tell me my windshield strip was illegal, too big. I asked them what the legal length was. They all said they weren't sure so I said, "Well, LA law states 7inches is the limit. Mine is 6 and 3/4."

" it's past legal limit" ya I know lol I'm like just give me the freakin fix it ticket so I can be on my way! Lucky only had to pay one.

Re: Ever gotten out of a "dark tint" citation from highway patrol?

I have been pulled over , in a construction zone, with cars passing me speeding , by a very young Alabama state trooper a few years back. This guy came out of the median to catch up with me, just to write me a ticket. Keep in mind that people were speeding in a construction zone all around me. When he walked up to the side of the car...i said officer, i wasn't speeding and several cars pass├ęd me speeding...what did i do wrong. He says I need to check your tent...i said really??? you came out of the median , let several people go, to check my tint?? Anyway..he had me come get in his car, and went over the chart he had and told me mine was at like 20% and that was illegal. He wrote me ticket...i took it, told him thanks for the heads up..that I hope he had a great day checking window tint that day..and got out of his patrol car. I called the county where I had to go court..they said i didn't have to come , that i could just send them the fine and be done...tint remained on and I mailed them there money. It's all about the money.
