Ok,

I drove out of Brooklyn, NY towards my friends house and I guess suburban cops have nothing better to do than to stay parked and look for cars with tinted windows. I got pulled over...he measured my tints...gave me a violation, said "pay it by mail" and left really quickly. So I begin reading through the ticket to see how much it will cost me and it doesn't say....? it just says Excess Tint...no price nothing. I always thought they make you remove them but since he said pay by mail I am guessing I just pay and thats it. In any case....anyone have any ideas about this? If anyone lives in NY or NYC please give me some information because I'm a bit lost. First ticket for tint for me.......they finally got me...:(

Sorry bout that dude, but it's the law!

Where I come from, the cops sit around (actually they cruise up and down the lakeshore or sit around) and chase black people down because they are black and send them across the border to Detroit.

They write tickets for the most minor equipment issues (cracked tailight, for example) to these poor people who obviously can't afford a new tailight - or much of anything for that matter.

Teach them to drive into our lily white ghetto!

Thank God I don't live there anymore.....

Believe it or not, I got tagged (about 10 years ago) by State Police for tint. I had an all black car and I just couldn't resist tint all around (not including the windshield).

I removed it and have never tinted again, except for the hatch glass on my RSX.

If your windows are down, do the cops have the authority to make you raise up your windows? In Michigan anything on the back windows is legal, but nothing is legal on the fronts. So if I ever get pulled over can I just roll them down and then they have no way to measure?

pretty sure if they suspect they are tinted they can have you roll up the window
