Sorry to hear. Will you have to remove the tint?

Sorry to hear that.
Two tickets for tint? That's insane. I've never heard of that, but that might be because I live in Alabama. Police don't enforce too many of the laws here. The only thing you really get a ticket for is speeding, and even that is rare.

Did you move to NY from another state or did you know your windows were darker than NY law allows when you tinted them?

Seems to me if you knew they were illegal and you did it anyway you really have no reason to gripe that you got the tickets.

I would have thought 1 ticket for tints would suffice...

I have no idea what the law in NY is with regard to window tint but if there are separate statutes for front and rear windows than the two tickets are understandable.

I dont think he's griping or complaining about getting two tickets... just trying to let a little steam out. Let the guy have his moment, fellas.

LOL, Not really complaining about getting the tickets and I know what I have on my car that gets me tickets or not. And I knew my tints where darker than state law and I receive tickets all the time. I just never got ones for the front and back. Also yeh I was speeding. And anyone who tells me they don't speed is lieing. I just happen to get caught. I was actually behind a truck but I was the first target. Hey they have jobs to do and I have no problem with that.

I was just letting out alittle steam.

Just curious, how much is the fine and why not just lighten the tint?

tint in rear is okay in CA. only the front is not okay. or i should say, not okay with CHP, but okay with local police. speeding, it's okay when there is no cop. lol. traffic school, so your insurance won't go up.

haha yeah, they're more strict now than in the past.
a few years ago as long as you weren't exceeding the spped limit by 25mph or a ricer, you'd get no tickets.
now you usually get a ticket for anything more than 15 or 20 mph over the speedlimit by the state troopers and some cities, but the local sheriffs don't seem to care how fast y ou are going as long as you aren't in some riced out civic with a fart can strapped underneath.

I believe that fine for tint is likea. $60 And the fine for speeding is like $150 I think. Actually this is the first time on this car I got shit for my tint. My last car I got stopped alot. But knock on wood hopefully this is my last time.

Alpine330, where on the BQE did you get caught. I am on the BQE almost everyday. I know what your going through.
