    Interesting, the Federal and State laws allow law enforcement to use the dark windows and I see more of them do have them.

    that's due to state and federal registered vehicles having exemptions. it's also another officer safety issue to a degree.

    All of my cars have had 5% limo tint on them. I got pulled over once by Texas Dept of Public Safety. Gave me a ticket. Told me if i take the tint off they would dismiss it. Week later drove to the office, peeled the tint off, clerk came outside took a polaroid picture of the windows and they dismissed it. Called my tinter up and he slapped another coat of 5% on.

    I have an oldschool 91 300zx with limo tint all around and the entire front windshield is tinted as well.

    Illinois change the law allowing tint on front windows so everyone is installing it, however the City of Chicago decided to raise the tint parking ticket fine from $25 to $250...Gotta love the City robbing everyone that drives into the city.....

    WA st trooper and warning are never used in the same sentence. Dude buy a lotto ticket!

    Im just waiting for the wa st rape when I get pulled over in my dodge. Front plates, 6" lift w/37's and no flaps, no flairs, limo tint all the way around. not if... when.
    Berg lets get together after the holidays. maybe Jan 1 and a little wakeboarding.

    True true - I may not pull it off at all. Only downside is if I ran into the SAME trooper again sometime down the road and he remembers me. Now that would be more like my kinda luck. I do wonder how much that ticket would be.

    I'm curious about you guys with the doctors note that gives exemption. I remember Dusty had said something about that earlier having one and getting let go. Maybe Dr. Newty could prescribe one for me and Dr. Berg could prescribe one for Newty.

    Almost forgot- you doin' the Polar Bear run again? I don't have plans as of yet.

    Cop should never knowingly put himself in a position of compromised safety. If he loses the upper hand, bad things happen. Always, always think safety. In that sense, tinted window are bad news. I was on the other side of countless stops, some urban, some rural, some in day light, and some in the dark of night. If the driver's window had tint, my gun was in my hand. The policy in Washington may sound extreme, but I understand and support it 100%.
