oh man, its been since last november when i got my windows tinted. 20% on every window surface, 6" 2% strip front and 6" blackout rear. i always always drive with windows down (unless raining) to make it look less tinted. well i pass a cop on a rural road (windows down) on my way to work and speed limit is 55, im going 50 (just taking it easy) and as i pass, he pulls off the road and turns around. i smile to think to myself, "is he going to pull me over for nothing wrong, then i thought- oh shit- tint. so im mosying along at 50 and about 1 minute later i see blue lights behind me. i pull over and greet the deputy. he asks for my lisence, asks me the year of the car, and asked if it was mine. i said it was mine, but my dad/mom cosigned, but i paid… (im also in work uniform) the officer said he admired my work ethic but wanted to check my window tint. he said my windshield was illegal and asked me to roll up my windows. i explained that i did not know the new law was in effect for GA tint. he said that since may 1, new GA tint laws are in… he said im at 18% with his tint-o-meter and he went to his car. about 5 minutes later he comes out, gives me a written warning and said to have a nice day.
he further asked how modded my mustang was (as he saw my banner). lol. i tell him catted H pipe, magnaflow catback, u/d pulley, cai… go through what ive done. he said he was impressed and thought i was a good kid.- nice guy.
im glad i left 30 minutes early to get gas or i would be late for work. ive always respected cops and i a a believer that if you have a great attitude about a situation, good things will come forth.
