man, that stinks.

good thing he didnt hit you for rollin the stop sign. i am sure that would have been a much larger ticket.

as monty python says, "always look on the bright side of life"

I got a ticket for my tint while I was at spring break in Daytona Beach. The main street down there was literally lined with thousands of motorcycle cops, and traffic of course was crazy. Then all the sudden I see lights behind me and he pulls me over, tells me to roll up my window, and says that my tint is 27 times the legal limit or something. Its crazy cause during the day you can see straight through my tint. He gave me a $44 ticket, or $9 if I take it off, so I just went ahead and paid the $44. Needless to say I wont ever go back to Daytona for spring break unless someone else is driving.

You can legally have as dark as you want as long as it's not on the front door windows in CA.

Why do you think this is? I'll tell you why, The cop wants to be able to see the weapon in your hand while you are being pulled over.

It's for his safety and I support it!

^Good point didhefocus.
I got pulled over for rolling a stop sign once, when in all reality I didnt roll the stop sign, but the cop was giving me a break, cause he was gonna get me for speeding and not using my turn signal. The reason I sped is cause he rode my ass, on a back road, after I left the stop sign (that I did come to a complete stop for), and he was so close that I couldnt even see his headlights, so I figured he wasnt a cop, just some *******, so I sped up and took a turn and didnt use my directional.
