Busted for my tint on wednesday! long story....

grrrrrr....


So yea... It was about 10AM and i was on my way to the my dentist appt.. I'm sitting at a light, and i check my rearview, and there is a cop behind me with his lights flashing... so i was like AWW shit... no idea what he was getting me for... Cause i wasn't speeding or anything...

light turns green and i go and pull over right past the intersection. The cop gets out of his car and walks up and asks me what i was doing, and i told him i was texting... and he says cause he had been following me for about a block or something...

so right there i thought i was gonna get busted for using my phone or warned anyways... cause there is a new law that just came in effect or something... or in january or something... anyways...

officer then makes a comment about my tint on the front doors saying that it was illegal to have tint on them and stuff...

blah blah blah...

he then asks me what kinda modifications i have done to the car. I told him just in intake and the tint. (didn't mention the upgraded intercooler). I told him though that the intake was legal and stuff. He then makes a comment about the STOCK EXHAUST saying that it appeared that i had a modified exhaust, at which i told him it was stock. he also made a comment about my reverse lights, cause i have some piaa ones that have blue glass, but they light up white... so they thought they were blue lights or something...

he then procedes to tell me that he was gonna write me up for the tint, and that he could also for the exhaust and lights, but wasn't going to.


so i sign the ticket and am on my way... cop was cool, just sorta dumb, cause the whole exhaust deal...

so after my dentist appt. i got to the tint shop, and they take it off for 10 bucks, i drive to the sherrif dept like 1/2 block down the street, have them sign it off and stuff (the sherrif there was getting on me about the exhaust and not having a front plate, but didn't ticket me or anything). I leave there, call up the tint shop to see how much it would be to redo the front windows... said 60, but would do it for 50, so i go there and have it put back on... all within a few hours of getting the ticket...

so yea... pretty fun day...

and something i learned at the tint place.... there was a former sherrif guy there or something having his truck done... and he told me that if you get tickets(like speeding and whatnot) in different counties in california, that you can go to traffic school in each one, even if you have already gone within 18 months...

so if i went to traffic school in OC and 2 months later get a ticket in LA county, i could still go to traffic school in LA...


sweet deal... but yea...i have typed enough, and i doubt anyone is even still reading.....

so adios...

Re: Busted for my tint on wednesday! long story....

The cell phone laws are the main reason behind cops going crazy here, straight from a CHP officers mouth. I left mine off.

Also they will be checking "non correctable" so you have to do what you did, and go to a station, and get it signed off, not just written off by a friend who is a cop. Also if you get caught again with tint on, its a non correctable violation and the fine will be over 200 bucks.

Just not worth it IMO.

The exhaust part is dumb, he was just uneducated on it. The laws are written funny so you can actually be written up on it, and it may\may not be thrown out in court depending on the judge.

modification laws are kind of bullshit since law enforcement can use their own interpretations on it.

Geeze, am I glad I don't live in Cali. Seems like a pain in the ass when it comes to mods.

ouch, I have illegal tint on mine, and when I got pulled over for speeding the cop made no mention of it.

You should drive with the front windows down now

haha. cops in my town... they dont seem to care about anything except speeding.

at the cruise there used to be a crap load of cops, but now... they dont even care.
i saw 1 cop where everyone was street racing and he left in like 2 minutes maybe.
