Got pulled over again yesterday....

so yea... me and my friend are just cruising around town talking... we are driving north on brookhurst street coming up to a red light at slater in Fountain Valley. I am in the left lane, and a cop is 2 lanes over, and there is some other car, i think an older volvo or something between us... I saw that cop and immediately thought about my tint and debated rolling down the front windows... but i figured i would just leave it, and when the light turns green to just keep the volvo in between me and the cop until the cop pulls away or something...

so the light turns green, and well, the volvo ends up ahead of both of us and the cop moves over to the left and is about 1 car length behind me...I'm figuring he was running my plate. so i was like wtf... i just keep driving to see what he is gonna do... i'm coming up to warner and decide to get in the left turn lane... and as soon as i do he flips on his lights, and i was like aw crap... and i had been being extra careful to not be speeding or anything... anyways... i end up pulling over into a gas station and i roll down my window and turn off the car... he then tells me to roll down my other windows too... so i do that, and he walks up to me and right away makes a comment about how my windows were really dark and that i wasn't allowed to have any tint on the front windows... He asks for my license, so i grab my wallet and start to hand him my ATM card accidentally, and he says "that's your bank card", and i was like "it's the same thing" just jokingly... so i give him my license, and he looks at it, and asks me if i had any tickets and i said no, nothing outstanding anyways. and he asks if i had been arrested before, I said no.

he then asks if i had done anything to my exhaust, and i said no, that is was stock. and he said, that he asks, because it sounds modified, and i told him it wasn't and it was just the stock one. He then asks how many chambers it has, and i was like WTF? chambers, what the heck you talking about... so i told him i don't know...

after that he asks where we were going, and i said that we were just driving around, and he asks where we had been, and i told him that we were at a concert... which we were. He asked who we saw, and i told him that is was a big festival and whatnot. He said ok, just wanted to make sure that she(my friend) didn't drag me to a Justin Timberlake concert...

after that he gave me back my license and told me to take care of my tint.... no ticket, no nothing... just verbal warning.. woo woo!

which is good... cause if any of you remember... i already got a tint ticket like a month ago... and i don't really wanna deal with having to take care of it again...


so yea...sorry for the messy typing and bad punctuation... Just wanted to share my story...

and i am sure some of you are gonna ask this....so....

i have 5% tint on the back, and 20% on the front

so far i think fountain valley cops are the best i have dealt with...

garden grove - speeding 40 in a 25, ticket, traffic school, mazda 3
OC sheriff - possible DUI, told be to buy hands free device for phone(i was learning stick still too), mazda 3
garden grove - speeding 53 in a 40, ticket, fought and won, toyota camry(work car)
CHP - Speeding 77ish in a 65, ticket, fought and won, friends corolla
westminster(posssibly fountain valley) - speeding like 60+ in a 40, Warning, Toyota Camry
fountain valley - Speeding like 60+ in a 40, warning, toyota camry
huntington beach - illegal Tint, fix-it ticket, Mazdaspeed 3
fountain valley - illegal tint, warning, mazdaspeed 3

Re: Got pulled over again yesterday....

thanks just needed some info since I just went with all around limos. when they give you the ticket the cops write down exactly where the tint is I.e. front passenger window, front driver window?
