Default Window tint

Got pulled over in Kingston Ontario Canada and got fined with a ticket because my tint is too dark. I understand the ontario traffic law about tinting and it is vague.

What happens if I pay the ticket but do not remove the tint? How would they know I didn't comply and changed it for a lighter shade?
The cop told me I could get it re-tinted a lighter shade.
There was no grading % taken so no way they would know the exact tint at the time of the ticket.
Also, is this ticket readily accessible or viewable on my record if I get pulled over again for something else?
Would they ticket me again or something worse?

Kingston has a buncha *ssholes though. I work from cobourg to brockville for CN so I see them around often. He's probably just jealous, he's probably driving some beat up rust bucket and your rolling around in a Hemi ha

I had an 07 Nitro, tints matched the stock rears. Black as night. I got a few stares from them but never actually to pull me over.

Maybe he was just having a bad day or like most of them they need to reach their "quota" for the month.

I don't believe they would ticket you worse if you leave it, its the same fine really. Just like when your speeding doing say 15km over. Its going to be the same fine any day. Know what i mean?

Well hopefully I won't meet your cop when im in brockville back for work, windows are getting tinted to match the backs this week!

Yea, watch out, they are doing a window tint blitz here in Kingston right now.
I didn't know about it, or I would have been driving with my windows opened (which I do now when I see one). Other thing, too bad for Kingston, going to do my shopping in Napanee for the rest of the month hahah.

Don't know about other states but in N.C. your inspection cost more if you have tint...Cops really look for cars with dark tint....but for a good reason...I'm planning on next month getting mine done..lol

Its actually more for the officers safety so when they are approaching a car they can see what the driver may be doing.
When you tint your windows you know your going to get pulled over eventually.
Everyone here in PA thinks all the cops have quota's to meet but they don't only state troopers do.
If you respect most cops they'll be pretty good with you, they're just doing their job.

Come up to kirkland and meet these cops. Maybe in your little state it runs one way, but up here in northern ontario, things run a little bit different!

I'm sticking with legal tint here as fined once was enough. Years ago I had tinted a car all around and the pissed off cop sat there and waited for me to scrape it off my windows with a razor that he provided. Had to get it off the fronts before he let me drive off.
