Well, if the guy was a veteran cop and gave you tickets for factory tint, then yes, he's a dick!

Listen guys NONE of us are above the law...point of my thread was article 9 says anything behind pass windows u can spray paint basically... The summons was issued on vtl art 9 infraction and they claim safety..... Really?.... The powers that be would allow stock tint to be that dark?.... I don't think so..I was trying to give the guys here a small leg to stand on.. I'm not crying about the ticket... They are both beat but it goes to show. How desperate they are.. This was a FYI and a bone sort of speak...... That ass actually said I can give u 4 summonses... And he would of gotten away if u don't know the law, u would of just paid,... Knowledge is power

I like how you tried to slip in that you used to be a cop like it's a get off free card. You're no better than the rest of us.

Try to argue with the police with common sense.
Yeah, good one.

The factory tint is in the glass so how are you going to remove it to be legal ? Will you have to install different glass ? MN laws are tough on tint so I hope the factory tint of my stock Express isn't going to cause me problems.

Nemmisis1, I'm not clear on your tint situation. Are your front windows stock or did you add tint to them? If they are factory then you have a legitimate complaint. If you added tint to them and it causes the front windows to block more light than allowed then I would say the ticket is justified.

We have similar tint laws here in Arizona. It isn't a primary offence so they have to have another reason to pull you over. They can't just pull you over for too dark tint here. I only know one person that got a tint ticket here. He got pulled over for using an HOV lane during restricted hours when he was the only person in his F*** Lightning. He knew his tint was illegal but didn't count on getting pulled over for something else. It is common practice here to put darker tint than allowed since the enforcement is rather lax. In fact when I had my front windows tinted at a large chain, the guy asked how dark I wanted to go. I told him to just go as dark as legal. He did, but he also said that if I wanted he would put whatever tint I wanted on the front. I would just have to sign a waiver acknowledging that I knew the tint was darker than State of Arizona allows.

It amazes me how you attack the op for trying to get out of a ticket as if none of you would try anything (name dropping included) to get your self out of one. 23 years of issuing summonses and I can hardly remember a traffic stop where the operator took the summons and drove away quietly. Reality is every profession has it's benefits right wrong or indifferent it is reality. I think it's such a sore subject due to the overwhelming dislike of cops in this country To the op thanks for your service brother I'm sure you saw some pretty horrible things during your time on the job and as you can see none of it appreciated. That's why it's called the thin blue line.
