Cop's Angle On Tint Laws

Recommended Posts

I came across a forum for police officers discussing the Florida tint law. Thought it was interesting (and a bit scary).

There are ways to virtually eliminate, or at least drastically reduce illegal window tinting (yearly inspections or harsh penalties to the installer) but it is tolerated enough so they can stop you when they want to, and not have to worry about violating your personal liberties.

Does anyone else feel this way? Or am I just paranoid...

Another good reason to stay legal

staying legal is no guarantee either.. got pulled over couple years ago with perfectly legal tint and all he could say was "have a good day" once he metered it..

Yeah, there was a case of some guy who was pulled over for "illegal" window tint. I forget the details but let's just say he was from Florida and he was driving through Georgia. Georgia cops pulled him over for illegal window tinting and found a massive amount of /\/\4R1jU4|\|4 in his vehicle. His tinting was legal for Florida, which makes it legal for him to drive through other states without citation. Anyway, he was arrested and fought his drug conviction on the basis that we was stopped illegaly. The court found that even if a cop simply "believes" that something is illegal he has PC to initiate a stop, whether it is in fact illegal or the cop is simply ignorant of the law.

So.. bow down and obey ye peasants

You guys wont believe this one! I was pulling into the school parking lot yesterday and got pulled over. Reason being that he thought my front windows were tinted, but they aren't. He put his little meter on it and it read 74. He was in shock as to what to do so all he said was "well uhh the back ones made the fronts look dark..... sooo uhh have a nice day." Most ridiculous thing I've ever witnessed LOL
