The story for those interested:
It was about 1:30 this morning and i was on my way home from a friends who lives 30 minutes away from me. I was cruising down Rt. 663 at 35 mph, posted speed limit of 30. I see a police car pass me going in the opposite direction and thought nothing of it. Out of no where, this cop pulls a u turn, throws on the lights, and proceeds to pull me over.
Cop comes up, gets my information off me, and asks me "Do you have any weapons, alcohol, or illegal substances in the car?" (asks me this 2x more). I respond no, there's nothing in the car (literally nothing). He goes back to the cruiser for about 15 minutes. He comes back, hands me my information and a form. Tells me that he's cutting me a break, but i need to have my tint off in 10 days, or a citation will be issued. He also showed me that my tint was too dark by shinning his flashlight through it . I'm tired so i just take it and drive off.
To cut to the chase:
I've got 20% tint on 7 windows in the wagon. There's no way I am going to remove my tint, as this is the first time I've had any problems or been stopped in 8 months of having it on. Plus, i think its BS that he could even tell my windows were tinted driving past me in the opposing lane at 1:30 in the morning.
Any one have experience with this type of citation? Any idea how much it'll cost me?
