He didnt test the sound? Did he test the tint with a light meter? If he didnt test either, then he can't "technically" write a ticket. If you tell them that he didnt test it while your in traffic court, but he says he did, they're probably gonna believe the cop. Or if you remove the offending items, sometimes they will void the ticket.

Alternativley, get the tint and muffler tested through a state approved testing agency, then bring your test results in. If your stuff is legal, then they will usually overturn the ticket.

well in jersey theres no tint allowed at all on the front windows so he rightfully gave me the tint ticket , but the exhuast he just said was loud and on the ticket it says the ticket is for "loud muffler" so i'm going to court bc it was never tested on a db meter and it shoudl get thrown out , its only $54 but the money isnt the point...

if you have it and if it states on it bring with you any papers you have when you bought the car. My car had aftermarket rims and tires and hella projectors and they wrote down on some of the papers that it was already on the car, if you have that im sure theyll let you go.

i dont think the paper work states that after market exhuast is on it , but i talked to the dealer and they said it was garenteed to pass state inspection , so when i go to court if they tell me that it wont then i will have them show me that it wont seeing as how the sticker is valid until 08' and the car is garenteed to pass so if it doesnt the dealer will make it pass and damn well better take up the price of the ticket and court cost's....
