When he came back to my car he went, "what kind of Ford is this?" I told him, and he wrote it down. Then he said, "You're not getting a citation for the tint. You're getting it because I couldn't see inside your vehicle to see that you were wearing your seatbelt."

As I was leaving, a guy blew past us doing 75MPH in a 40MPH zone. And he did nothing. Cops are s and don't care about the true people that break the law. Only the ones they make money on. Which he even said his boss gives him shit about tint.

Sorry to hear that. I was actually wondering if the stock tint actually cut down on light. That might explain the 4% extra that his meter read.

If you look at the windows (at least on my 2011), you'll notice that they're slightly tinted green, and in the corner of the window it says something like Ford Solar Tint or something to that effect.

Yeah, that's what he said..

But we talked about it at work today, and it all depends on the cop. I've been pulled over 3 times this month. Not once was I doing anything wrong. The 1st time was for my inspection being out of date. Okay maybe that's wrong, but I wasn't speeding, or doing something stupid. That cop told me that I have a very nice car, and gave me a warning.

The 2nd cop pulled me over for my tint, asked me what % it was, and i told him. He said, "okay, I'm going to give you a warning. have a nice day"

Apparently I just found the wrong cop today.

I did some research into tint laws and it says that the light going threw the window must not drop below %20, this includes both tint and the windows natural ability to block light. Chances are if you got %20 on your car (No matter which car it is) you are braking the law. Dumb? Yes, but it is the law, I don't like it, but what can you do (aside from getting %35 I mean). But the only time I was pulled over I had my windows down before the cop could get to the side of the car. It was dark and I wanted to make sure he could see into the back seat. Last thing I need is a jittery suspicious cop giving me the business.

Know what I mean?

Oh I know it's not legal. I'm 100% okay with that. I'm going to pay the ticket and be on my way. I may have come off upset and p*d at the cop, which I am because like i said, as soon as he finished with me, someone was speeding and he did nothing.

The whole reason this started was because they guy said that everyone can tell it's a Focus. Which today I was asked what car it was.

Ah, no worries, just passing on some of the info I have learned.

I didn't even get a warning when I got pulled over, I was getting onto the freeway and was on the gas a little heavy to get over and a bike cop was 2 car lengths behind me on the freeway. Apparently there was a 700 GXR directly behind me on the on-ramp and he thought I was trying to race it....

Really?!

Anyway he didn't even get off the bike, just rolls up and asks, "Were you trying to race that motorcycle?" I said no sir and he says "Well it looked like you were swerving a little back there, don't do it again." And takes off, leaving me befuddled on the shoulder of US 59.

So you revved your engine and raced the cop, right? :)
