Fair enough. Unfortunately not every driver has the forethought to roll down illegally tinted windows so cops can be safe. Also, the safety issues for other drivers/pedestrians still is too much for me. That said, I recognize people think the risk of tickets is worth the tint... I just don't want to hear things like "that g donut eating pig gave me a tint ticket" haha. They're just doing their jobs, it's the people with the illegal tint who decided to break the law! Same reason I don't complain about speeding tickets
