Default tint

I just got a ticket for having tint on my passenger and drivers door. And havent had one of these. Im under 18 so i have to go to court for it. Do i just take in pictures of the car with the tint off and they will waive it or what?

depends on your previous record. I was clean, but got busted for tint and front plate. I pushed the issue and went to court, they dropped both tickets, but I did have to remove the tint. It is a bitch to get off, unless it was installed recently.

I got that same thing back when I was 18 with my Mustang. I had 5% Tint on all windows of that car and got stopped for it. All I did and was even told by the cop is have the tint removed from the front windows, then take a picture of before and after photos and also bring in the removal bill to court and the ticket will be thrown out. I have had several buddies that have done this and there tickets all got thrown out.

No, Like my new camaro has 5% all around the car and thats how it came when I bought it. So u would do what I said in my 1st post or u can say I bought the car that way with the tints and they should cut u a break.

I haven't been pulled over for my tint..What I do is just keep the windows down most of the time when I'm in the city..I've been lucky so far....
