Got Pulled Over -- First Time

So yeah... I noticed when leaving school today that there were mucho cops out pulling people over... I was like... gotta be careful coming home tonight...

I'm on my way home going down Rolling Road (a major street) when I see an unmarked cop turn on to it. I quickly speed up that way I can get far away from him... but then I see that he's gunning his *** off to catch up with me. As soon as he gets closer I left off the gas and began to coast till I got back down to 40mph... The cop is along side me in the left lane and I'm in the right. At this point... I'm going, holy ****, he see's my radar detector... I slow down to 35mph and he's not passing, just remaining a lil bit past the middle of my car and along side it.

I come up to a random side street, wait till the last moment, and quickly turn right -- the cop who was in the far left lane then swirves and follows. I then put on my signal to turn into a residential neighborhood hoping to lose him, and there goes the blue lights... arg!

He asks for my licence and registration and I'm all fumbling and nervous... I'm like... officer, I've never been pulled over before... and he's like, let me just see your licence. He comes back with another officer with this thing in his hand and he tells me to roll up my window a bit. I roll it up and he attatches it to my glass. He tells me I have 35% side and 20% rear. He then tells me that in 2000 the law was made so 50% side and 35% rear is VA state legal. He goes to his car and comes back 5 minutes later with this...

ticket removed for good reasons... I got a warning for illegal tint

Thank god it was only a warning. 50% side?! WTF... who would spend money on 50% sides? I told him I had this tint installed professionally over a year ago and was never onced pulled over for it or warned. Not to mention, I've received parking violations in the past (that were cleared up for stupid cops not seeing my parking permit) and they've never mentioned anything about my tint... The cops are just cracking down today to meet quotas, I swear.

The moral of the story... pull off sooner instead of waiting till the cop is along side of you!! LOL

BTW... the cop then goes, nice kit, how much did you pay for it? lol I'm like... **** you *******!!

ummm i never knew you had window tinting done. show some pics of the windows. Im alittle lost im under the impression that if you have done somthing that was legal before they changed the law then you are clear and is not illegal. Is this right?

that sucks man, i always thought MD and Va were 35% in the front, no limit in the back. I actually got pulled over on Rolling Road sometime in January for speeding. only got a warning though, cop was purdy cool about it.

i think in alabama its 35% all the way around. besides windshield of course. I've been pulled over w/ no ticket, not even warned, but they didnt say anything about my tint or the blue neons on the inside i was too nervous to remember to turn off...

I have 15% btw.

The legal tint here in MS is 35% all the way around with no tint allowed on windshield. I put 35% tint on my car last year and put an eyebrow across the top of windshield. I went to Highway Patrol Station to get an approval sticker, it registered as 28%...the cop just looked at me and said "it looks legal" and then said he can't give me a sticker for it, but it looks legal. That's all he said. When I got pulled over the cop didn't say a word about the tint at all..go figure. Sometimes cops are just looking for ppl to pull over and harass..

well uhh speeding up to try to get away from the cop at first prob caught there attention more than anything, and they they saw your and were like hmmm prey...and then they didnt have a real reason to stop ya, so they went for the tint thing....I have not ever heard of 50% tint in my life, WTF...why pay for titn if thats the case, I think they were just f%$king with ya is all!

dumb *** cops!

The more you dress that stang up, get used to being stopped, we were in Cobb, GA one time going to a SVTOA picnic and lost as hell, so we were driving a tad slow, and some dumb *** cop stopped us and gave us a warning cause he said or license plate was obscuring our month tag on our lic. plate....? and gives us htis warning ticket and such, and then he says ahhh dont worry about the ticket, I said so you basically just wanted to check the car out and we can use this piece of paper for a bk mark right???

but we did get directions out of it at least!

I think not having any on the side windows kinda defeats the purpose of getting tint

i say why get tint when that 200 bucks or so can go to speed mods, that more than likely, you cant get fined for(unless they arent carb legal). my buddy has done tint on 3 cars, and ive helped him remove it on 3 cars. its a waste of money IMO. and now my neighbor just got tint+mirror flame on his truck. theres a ticket waiting to happen, and hell prolly *****, moan and complain when he has to remove his 400 dollar tint, and then pay a 35$ fine on top.

You know Shahrum... you could have gotten out of it if you jumped on the hood of the car wtih a hooters cup in your mouth, and pretending you were a bird wtih 2 to-go boxes :shahrum:

Cop would have either laughed his @$$ off, or had given you a ticket anyway.
