Street Legal

I was looking for the legal requirements for tint when I stumbled upon the CHP website. They've got a three page list of stuff thats not legal.

I wonder if they enforce most of it cause I know more than a couple California natives who could suffer heavy fines. Read it, even if you're not Californian.

Note: The law says officers don't have to test your exhaust with a dB meter, but rather use their own judgement. Then you have to fight it out in court. frown

(at the bottom of the page)Remember - FTBC (failure to be cool) is not a crime! rofl

I don't even read the featured articles. I just go for the install guides. I'm in the Custom Mods, Anything Goes, General, and n00b forums. Thats about it. I've posted maybe once in the media section. Sorry for not taking full advantage of this site, Isaac. I will try harder not to add extra information (like everyone else laughsilly)

They can't tell you have them unless they're turned on. Which is why if you see a cop, turn them off. By then, it'll probably be too late thumbsdown. I have footwell cathodes and I get nervous driving at night. But they look so damn cool! tasty
