Sounds like you should be fine. Try to find out which cities enforce the tint law. If you're in the bay area, roll down your windows in SF and Palo Alto.

I got one from a CHP in a different county about a month or two ago. He pulled me over off the freeway. He was on a power trip. Made me do a field sobriety test and everything even though I was completely sober...
Anyways, I told him at the end I wasn't going to fix it, and I was just going to pay the fine.
Would have been $25 if I had fixed it. I instead payed $198 and just made the ticket go away.

The few times I did get fix it tickets, before having my daughter I would just remove the tint get the ticket signed off and re tint it the same day alot cheaper than paying the 200$

Here's a solution.. Don't know how feasible it is for the majority of y'all.. Register your camaro In a different state that doesn't have a tint law... Get the plates.. And then your untouchable.. Been pulled over many times in my Tahoe and camaro with tinted windows. Having Oklahoma plates and no tint law can't say tell me nothing or write me a ticket

I've had this happen twice now, but for exhaust and tint. I'm registered in Florida which has no emissions laws, so long tubes and straight pipes are perfectly legal. Last time the leo just told me to go away.

Dumb question....don't I need a mailing address and drivers license in those states to register there? Not a problem for me but I too am tired of the BS laws/tickets. And what if I don't owns car outright? Does that matter?

Tinted windows just give the cops a reason to pull you over...whether they write a ticket or not....

They can bust you for having out of state plates on your car though.

the law is front windows ZERO TINT NONE NADA! unless you have a Dr. note for a skin condition. anything behind the driver you can have as dark as you want. Front window i believe its 3-4" down as dark as you want.

Pretty sure the law says that for non-military, you have to register your car in Cali within 30 days of moving here. For military, you can keep it registered where ever you want. Only two states "require" you to register your car in them regardless of military status, and they are Hawaii, and I believe Alaska (not sure about Alaska though).

Just because you have out of state plates doesn't mean that they "can't" cite you, but they are less likely to site you. You still have to follow the laws of the state that you are in.

As far as registering in a different state, two of the three have to be from the same state (Drivers license, Registration and Insurance). Even active duty military have to follow that one.

Looks like we may be registering all our cars in Oregon. I'll be down here for "work" only.

I was pulled over a couple weeks ago for my tint. I was driving the posted speed limit. The only reason I was pulled over was the tint. It's only a fixit ticket, but it's still going to cost me (unless I can find a LEO who will sign off for me). I'll have to remove the tint, get it signed off, then reapply the tint. Ugh. Or I can just pay the fine of $165 (and enter a 'guilty' plea).
