First, I have a Mississippi MEDEX and I do not abuse mine--it's my understanding that the MEDEX is registered to the vehicle, the VIN number is on the MEDEX--each vehicle is eligible for one but you have to have one for each vehicle.

since it says "or regularly travels as passenger" means to me that even your own vehicle could be med exempt if your father rides in it regularly. doesnt mean ud have to remove film everytime your father wasnt in the vehicle. if he had said condition than every vehicle he travels in regularly would need to tinted at a dark VLT.

Where was this info from,  Not anywhere in the statute.

 

 

first off the medical exempt has limits as well as your standard tints regulations, I'm not on my PC right now or I would look it up for you, <(I'll do that tonight when I get home)


I don't know what you have on your car but I would say the reason you got a ticket anyway is because the officer thinks he's right.. which he may be.. did he use a light meter on your doors? if not your good to go his complaint won't hold up in court if he did not use the proper device to measure the VLT..


I'll talk about the Florida medical exempt limits for now........



by having a medical exempt in place for your window tint allows you to go darker than the regular state laws , example Fl allows 28% 0n front and 15% in the rear... the medical exempt only allows you to have NO DARKER than 20% on front doors and 70% on the front windshield , the rear remains at 15% and is Not allowed to be darker. all this info is in your state statue on the particular law, if not you'll have to consult the DOT and they will show you that statue!,,, again I'll look this up tonight for you..

so that's

70% front windshield
20% front doors
15% rear doors & rear glass



the problem is tinters are abusing the privileges by installing limo tint on a car with the medical exempt which is Very Illegal almost everywhere!! with the exception of a few states ,,, I promise if you dig deep enough you will find the fine print about this tint law and Yes every state has it written in the statue..

Whenever looking for fine grain details in a law be sure to consult the "annotated code".

.

Any attorney, law library, or University  will have access. The annotated code gives you some details not in the actual code.

Also can look up case law to how others have argued.

Correct. I have a medical exemption and if I wanted to I could put triple limo on my windshield. Now of course that would get me profiled and pulled over, but anytime ive EVER shown a LEO my exemption they just tell me to have a nice day. If your father was in his own car or any car that's registered to him, that exemption is like an umbrella and covers all cars registered to the exemption holder. If the car isn't registered to him, you may have some issues.

I don't know what state you are in but I am in Mississippi, first, I'm not aware of people abusing the exemption here in Mississippi. I have a medical exemption and the first thing I did was have the doctor write it on his letterhead and says that I should be allowed to have my tint darker than the law allows as long as it doesn't obscure my view and it's for this reason, ect. I then took it to the tag folks who filled out the exemption, I keep one with me, the county where my tag is registered keeps one, and the highway patrol is mailed a copy..It states that the exemption to whom the vehicle is registered to is allowed to tint in excess as long as they are on the registration...
