Default Window Tint Ticket

For those of you who have illigal window tint, do you get pulled over often and if you do, how much does the average ticket cost. Im looking to get 20% all around, but im only allowed 35% back and 50% front[sm=smiley21.gif]. Thanks.

Heh, I went to have mine inspected a couple weeks ago, and the garage told me they wouldn't pass it with tint on the door windows. It was so light, I didn't even know they were tinted!! This is in NH, and the garage had been put on probation a year ago for passing cars that have tinted windows. I understood where he was coming from. It wasn't a big deal for me, as I just took the tint off. I mean, heck, if I didn't even know it was tinted, I guess I didn't need it Besides, my car's a little lighter now-LOL

try walking a mile in the other guys mocassins for once. how would you like to be a police officer who has to stop a speeder and then walk up to the drivers side window without being able to see if there's a gun about to be used to shoot him?
a small amount of tint I don't have a problem with, but the blacked out look just ain't safe for the driver or anyone else who has to approach a vehicle like that not being able to see inside. you ever try to see through one like this from the back in order to see what the traffic is doing ahead of it, you can't see a damn thing. police officers have a bad enough job as it is, and we don't need to make it any harder for them to do it in my opinion.

well i really need to darken my hatch because i have some desirable stuff in back, and i just got new hatch supports, so that counts out letting the hatch fall on a perp (which just happened to me and i got 12 stitches on my nose, hence why i fixed the supports)

a couple of years ago i got a ticket for that, i have 20% all the way around except for the hatch and its 10%. in ky they give you a ticket for $25 or show the judge a piece of the tint that you had taken off. i just paid the $25 dollars and never got another ticket for that again, guess i've been lucky. course i launched through a yellow light before that and thats why he pulled me over in the first place! said i was speeding excessively through a intersection, hell i just wanted to get through it befor the red light! punk *** cop

We dont go by % here so i dont know what it would be but mine is so dark front and back you cant see in even in daylight its dark!

I did get a ticket one night and the following week i went to the states attourney and he dropped it.As for the price here its seventy five bucks.

But my girlfriends mom has a F150 withe triton and she ordered it with the tinted glass from the factory and was ticketed but of course got it dropped.

FYI - In oregon if you can prove that the car was purchased out of state and it came with tint (any %) they have to drop the fines. I have almost impenitrable tint and have never been stopped. If you can tell in the pic I have silver tint.

later, mike

Where im from the legal limit is the same and if you get pulled over all you have to do is tear it off in a certain time frame and you pay nothing. Then just go get it done again. HA HA HA

The cops in my area are selective in their enforcement.If you have wings ,loud exhaust ,loud stereo,or anything else that calls attention to yourself,you will get a ticket for the tint($140 I think).Then if one isn't bad enough,you will get papered everytime they see you from then on.There are some cars in my area that have 5% and don't get stopped but they are un-modified,no fun cars.I went with legal tint in the GT.

I am a police officer in Massachusetts. The fine in Massachusetts is 250.00 for illegal tint. A tint meter must be used to determine the % of light penetration. 55% or more is legal in Massachusetts. Everyone gets warnings from me. UNLESS THEY ARE RICERS

Yea my dad was a state trooper and before I thought the tint laws were bull****. Then when we talked about it one day I realized how unsafe it is for them (the cops). He was telling me a story about stopping a guy for illegal tint and the guy had a gun in the glove comp. Had the guy wanted to he could have pulled the gun out and had it waiting on my dad and he would have never seen it. Plus you cant see **** out of anything less than 20 percent.

Mine are 5% in the back and 20% on the driver and passenger side windows. I just got pulled over the other day for speeding, he let me go on the speeding ticket, and didn't say a word about the tint.

It's probably got a lot to do with what you're doing and how you act when they pull you over. I've had lots of cars tinted and have never gotten a ticket for it.

The law here is NO tint at all on the driver and passenger side window. The rear window can be as dark as you want.

I got an idea.......just put it in the legal limits and you won't have to worry about paying a fine or re-doing the tint.

Problem solved!

Yeah thats kinda weird, i've gotten pulled over four times in NH where you cant have tint on the driver/passenger windows and i've gotten off everytime. They don't even say a thing. One cop said my rear was too dark and should be 35%... bah to him haha. My fronts are 20% and my rear is 2½%
