Illinois tint law

I got pulled over for tints in a nearby suburb. The cop was diggin' the ride and only gave me a citation.
Here's the question. It says I have to present proof that I have removed the front tints within 21 days or I will recieve a fine of $30, on the 36th day if I don't pay it will be increased to $45. Couldn't I just send them a check for $30 and keep my tints?

NO!

That just sucks! How dark are they, anyway? Any stay of any length that I have had in that blue state was less than enjoyable. Right down to the "right to work" raodsigns and Union advertisements in every cornfield.

Where is it again that we are going... And why are we in a handbasket?

Very dark. Limo tints.
I assume the fine is for not showing up for the inspection, and if I don't show up, how do they know if I removed them or not. It's all about the money here. Speeding is a crap-shoot. You could be doing 80 and a cop will fly by and give you a dirty look for going too slow but at the end of the month when it's time to make moolah, they'll pull you over for doing 58.

Those fines are so trivial that provided you don't get points on your driver's permit,I would pay the fines and keep the tints.That's what I hate about the pigs-as if they don't have something better to do than bitch about the colour of your windows.Wankers.[:(!]

RE: Illinois tint law

It is a safety issue. German law allows for a tint light enough, so that a following car can monitor the traffic further ahead. Here, following most cars with tinted windows is no different from driving behind a truck. You can't see what is going on in front of it. Cheerio, Horst K
P.S. If someone really wants it, getting a mac10 or uzi here should not be too difficult. But who really needs one.

Maybe you need to get the bribery option of the trunk monkey.

RE: Illinois tint law

It is always a bugger - I avoid tints for that exact reason - the laws are different everywhere. For example I live in one province, workin another (just have to cross a river) and both have different laws.

Just not worth the hassle
