pulled over for illegal tint
whats up yeah i just got pulled over by a pig today for illegal tint. i guess over here in VA, the darkest you can have is 35% which i have limo tint. Im not tryin to take my tint off so i was wondering if anyone has any suggestions to prevent tickets in the future...im really sick of this shit cause ive had numerous tickets for tint from my integra.. i was thinkin maybe puttin some tape on the top and edge of my windows and so when i get pulled over and the pigs want to check the tint, i just tell them that my windows are craked so they cant check it with their little device...so then they have no evidence...(no evidence = no ticket) but then the window looks like shit ...so what you guys think? any ideas please holla at cha boy!!!!!!!!!!!

cry cry cry

If you keep getting tickets or getting stopped by police then I think the intelligent thing to do is take off the limo tint or get as close as you can to legal

Just fix your tint. Take it off. Unless you like paying money to the cops, fix the problem

rofl rofl rofl

Is the 35% limit only on front windows, or all around? Most states allow you to have any sort of tint you want behind the front two windows. If that's the case in VA, just get 20% on the fronts and leave the back limo. 5% (limo) up front will ALWAYS get tickets... don't even try to find a way around it.

Actually, VA law is 35 in the rear, and 50 up front. Unless you're in an SUV. They're allowed 5 in the back. I've got 5 in the rear, and 35 up front. Haven't had any probs...yet.
