Default Moved to TN from TX

Moved to TN from TX do to work. I found the tint on my truck is illegal according to TN law. I have a letter from my Dr. recommending tint on my truck due to sun photosensitivity. I have called all the legal places I know of to get a medical exemption for tint, but nobody seems to know what to do. Anybody from TN out here know how to go with this process?

Depends where in TN you are. Have you been stopped?

I've had 20% on all my previous cars for the last 10 years. I have yet to be stopped.

This tint is illegal in TN and some counties in NC. The Cummins sticker is long gone but illegal in TN, as well as my 5" tip (no silencer ring), depends if you're speeding. Wind shield 20%, not the rest though.

These are usually secondary tickets to a speeding ticket in TN (more money for the fine). Depends on the trooper. R...

I haven't been stopped yet. But I am trying to stay within the law. My trucks still have Texas tags on them.

If you are still registered in Texas, I don't think you will have a problem (unless the cop just wants to be an ass). What if you were just driving through Tennessee? Could they stop a legally-equipped Texas truck and issue a ticket? Doesn't seem to me as if they could.

Your best bet might be to contact the local state police in your area and/or the department of motor vehicles (Louisiana call it the Office of Motor Vehicles).

If nothing else, one of the two above agencies might be able to point you in the correct direction.

Good luck
