summons for tints

ok so... a friend of mine got caught speeding and got away because i kinda blocked the cop's way for a few secs.. he pulled me over cuz my friend got away... and gave me summons for tints.. lol

i accidentally said that i got the tints after i bought my car (which is true)...so how do i defend myself in court, so dont have to pay a fine?

is the officer going to be in court? cuz im thinking if i should lie and say i had the tints before i bought the car, and i didnt kno they were illegal and i'll take them off (as soon as i can afford it.. "broke college student" a legit excuse?? lol)

advice plz?

Re: summons for tints

Little tip - don't lie, especially in front of a judge.

Just be honest, and pay the fine. Doesn't hurt to ask for it to be reduced, but be honest and you'll be fine.

Re: summons for tints

Yeah, just ask if you can remove the tint and not pay the fine. It doesn't matter if the car was tinted before or after you bought it. It's not legal, you've been caught and now it has to be addressed.

No need to lie to anyone.

+1. Also, don't pay a tint shop to remove tint. Just get a clothing steamer (or one of those "Shark" portable steam cleaners) and peel it off yourself. Comes off real easy if your fairly patient.
