Georgia Does not like your Tint

Georgia just past a new law with they will fine you $1000 for having tint on your car even if you from out of state even if it is legal in your state. I think this is aimed at people form Florida since they tint their windows.. Looks like another revenue opportunity for Georgia

Georgia: 32% percent on all windows.
Florida: 28% front 15% back.

First they PA rule is wrong, PA has no official law about % tint, the % was a DOT attempt at put a number on a vague PA law about tinting.

Back to your point about, FL drivers will get nailed since the they are below the 32% +/- 3%

If I ever got ticketed in Georgia for this shit I will take a picture of myself giving them the middle finger, wipe my ass with the ticket and mail it back to the respective police department addressed to the appropriate officer.

That'll show him. I'll drive through Georgia maybe once every 10 years so goodluck on them getting me back. Unless Ohio can enforce me to pay an out-of-state fine? That may put a damper on my parade haha.

Also that's complete BULLSHIT that they can even ticket someone for something that is legal in their state. It's not like someone coming from a completely different country, we're just crossing a state line. Until Georgia has border patrol is don't see this standing well in court and will eventually be thrown out by the Supreme Court once they piss someone off with the time and money to stick it to Georgia.

Well VA is trying to similar things with speeding tickets, but at least they said they will not tack on the extra money for out of state drivers.
