Lets be clear we are talking about tint not driving dangerously or street racing just tint.
First; I was talking about the tint on OP's (or anyone's) tail lights. There is a standard based on safety that should be enforced and as PoorMansCamaro stated, they are what they are so others can see you within certain distances.

As for my personal driving habits; I nearly always drive within the acceptable enforced limit which is normally 5 to 7 mph above the posted speed. Police are not concerned with drivers doing slightly over the speed limit, so neither am I provided conditions allow it. In zones less than 45mph, I'm usually right on the speed limit.

And by the way, if police ever start enforcing the posted limits (which I wish they would), I will comply. If that makes me a "tattle tale" by your standards (which makes no sense relevant to the general conversation) then so be it. Also, I have a very fun life and lots of friends.

Yeah I saw him merging to express way so I slow down may be my car caught his attention. Too bad didnt get a chance to roll the window down and turn the lights on. He was quick and was right behind me in no time.

Adding tint to the front side windows and any light is illegal in Ca.
The "official" reason for the tint law is the inability to make eye contact with other drivers. But if that was the case, wearing sunglasses while driving would be illegal.
The "unofficial" reason for the Ca tint law is LEO's can't see inside your car.This is especially important now during distracted driving enforcement campaigns. LEO's need to see you holding a phone or texting to write a ticket. Many violators hide behind tinted windows while using a cell phone with impunity.
For officer safety reasons, LEO's also like to see inside the car during a traffic stop.

Ive been pulled over 19 times only ever had 1 ticket written, and ive learned this: Cops are douchebags. They do what they want cuz they got the law stuck up their @$$.

If you are worried about not being harassed by them sell your car, buy a station wagon and kiss any performance ride goodbye. That said having window tint on your car in a no tint state is asking for it. You're in a sports car so they will nit pick you to death where any other big breasted blonde would get off scott free. You my friend will be burned at the stake. I would suggest taking the tint off your windows and lights alike unless you want to get burned any time the lawman happens to be on his time of the month.
