This is mainly a rant!!!!
I have had my windows tinted for about 4 years (limo tint - 5%). Well, to make a long story short, I was driving down the road, and a cop pulls up next to me. I just got my system hooked up again, so I turned the volume down as soon as I saw him tailing me. About 20 seconds later, he flips his lights on and pulls me over. I was like crap. So before the cop even gets out of the car, I roll both front windows down (knowing that they are darker than crap). He walks up, asks me to roll my window half-way up, and using his little window meter tester. It read 4%!!!!!
He asked if I knew that the tint was illegal, and I was being honest (thinking it would get me out of a ticket) and said "yes sir, I am not going to lie to you. I know it is illegal." He walk away, and said "I am going to give you a ticket for your windows. I couldn't see anything in your car when I was behind you." So I rolled my windows back up, and said a few choiced words!!! He came back, gave me my lisence and insurance. I asked how much the ticket would be, and he said $82, plus I have to take the tint off ($200 tint). D'OH!!!!
I just couldn't believe it has taken me 4 years to get a ticket.
Does anyone know what the law is in GA, for tint? I know it is 35% up front. But what about the back window and the quarter windows? Because I was thinking about just taking the window tint off the front windows, and leaving the back three limo. Once I remove the tint, I have to take my car to the police station, and they have to inspect the tint. If it is legal, or taken off, I just have to pay the ticket without going to court.
