Now, if you get a ticket and go to court to fight it you will have to apppear one tome and plead not guilty and ask for "OR" so you dont have to pay the fine before you leave. When you return a 2nd time if the Officer is in court, which most of the time he should be per Dept policy you can call him as a witness and ask questions. Remember now he is under oath. Ask him if he has tint on his personal vehicle. I can almost guarantee he does, if he lies it could cost him his job if he says yes, you can take it from there
Back windows can be painted black for all anyone cares. There's no law against that. Only the front sides have restrictions. Therefore CA tint laws mean NOTHING for officer safety. It's just BS restrictions from a BS state.
