    Window tint ticket :/

    Got pulled over for my tint and my windows were down! I bought the car this way so he gave me a ticket but will wave it if I get it fixed. He said the rear window isn't allowed to be below 32% on passenger cars (I thought all cars were allowed to have rear windows as dark as you want). My front windows are 24% and I assume my back is probably 15 or so because at night I can't see a person standing behind my car lol. Well I am going to get my tint fixed as dark as I can because I love the way my car looks with dark tint. Sucks :cry:

    So he pulled me over based on my rear window lol. Luckily I was wearing my seatbelt I guess. :/
    Blah!

    He said in FO (fort Oglethorpe) they will usually dismiss it if you show up with it done. Hopefully they do..that ticket is as much as it's going to cost to redo my tint..

    They will probably dismiss it if you get it changed out. One reason I love a small town, run 5% on everything and they don't really care.

    He said Georgia was 32% all the way around for passenger cars and only SUVs or work trucks can have their back window as dark as you want. Better be true because my windows were DOWN so the whole reason he pulled me over was based on my rear window being extremely dark lol.
    I hate it because the tint pulls everything together. My mustang lettering on my bumper cover, my wheels, etc. Now it's gonna be lighter :(
    I will check out those laws and if it says I can have the rear as dark as I want I'm keeping it as dark as it is now or maybe darker to spite :)

    Well hopefully they mean it. He was very nice to me and even joked around.
    I just looked at that link and it says 32% all the way around and no more than 20% reflective. Well I don't have any reflective tint now so I will go 32% and 20% reflective :) dark as I can. Also reflective will help cool my car a bit :)
    Sucks regardless, my tint is perfect in my opinion.

    Fine
    attitude goes a long way in getting a ticket dismissed .

    tint

    I live in GA and I thought they did away with the tinting laws. Seems I read that somewhere, the paper or something. I did read the post that was in here and that said as of 2005. has that been revised? Need to know. I have a black car and was considering going really dark with mine.
