Dang, sorry to hear buddy.

I wouldn't take off the tint. 2 years ago, I got the same no front plate & windows tint fix-it ticket (the cop even stuck his white ticket book into the car, looked at it thru the front windshield and wrote me up for tint. It was at night and I don't know how that guy knew it). I got it signed off. There's no way I'm going to take off the tint. And, put the damn'd front plate back on & kept it there. Just don't want to give them a reason to pull me over.

I have so many front plate and tint tickets that now when I get pulled over they ask if those are all for the same car! lol I just pay the fine. I like my tint and am sensitive to sunburns, sorry LE.

Btw I ALWAYS roll both windows down completely when I get pulled over (even in the rain) and keep my hands at the 10 and 2 oclock positions on the wheel.

I did buy a tow hook front plate kit though and I am considering putting it on to give LE one less reason to pull me over. I don't really care about the ticket but I don't like being delayed.
Yep, me too. In fact, if I even suspect that a car around me is an unmarked unit, I roll down the windows.
