oh my father alredy (not really prescription) but note in medical history that he has to wear sun glases, so I guess I can use that

As to the state law, it says I gota have a stiker (but it doesnt say where should I have it nor where can I obtain it)

Cool Its called, Driving Tax

Bad Cops job is to take money out of your pocket.
Just pay it and move on.
If you drive a car, like MB, the bad cops want to take your money.
If its not tint, it will be lane change, short signal, or something.
It's not right, its not fare, it's just life baby!

OBTW I have had a black out tint for years and in ca cops are here to protect and serve not make money. To date I have had no problem while in ca. However, when I travel I get stoped alot.

Bad cops are bad cops, jsut remember there are alot of good cops too!

Enjoy

Stings like a BMR

I have had several tickets for tint in CA... Even in my neighbors new Saab... He ended up having to remove the tinted windows, even though they were factory... There are many other reasons not to move here... lousy smog laws.... bad gun laws... etc..

Cops told me to remuve tint, but all cars in the city are tinted, Myfriend got Jeep, factory made 13%.. This low is unfair, the law review says it to prevent terorosm... dude the terrost will get wan with no doors. And we are peaceful drivers have to suffer from that. I feel its like innovation of privacy and at the same time an extortion by police. If I would go onn red light or speeded, fine i would pay mi tiket but here i dot wanna pay it, and i can present my case in court because they will refere to the law and boom.

Not even that, I bought my car 8 month ago with tinted windows and I have no knowlage of the low what so evere there been no single line any where about it and now I have to pay for it. Come on we are being descreminated.

What you guys think? Is there any way to avoid tiket? Class action? Lobbing w/ tint manufacturers? Something? I'll do anything.

GUARANTEED way to not get a Ticket.
COMPLY with the Law.
It's as easy as that. NY State Law so your windows were darker than allowed,
and now you must rectify it to COMPLY with the Law of the land. It's a no brainer.

Whoever put the Tint on your MB KNEW they were violating NY State Law.
It was not accidental, not an oopsy-daisy.

Window Tint your MB in compliance with NY Law, Pay the Fine and move on
with your life.
