Lame Alcohol and Tint Laws

WTF, I got my car in Idaho with legal tint (35% on the side and 20% in the back.) Had to register it in Utah three months later and they made me remove the 35% tint.

As if it's not bad enough that I have to drive to Wyoming to get real beer, now I have to ride around with light tint. Maybe I should register the car in Wyoming next time I make a beer run.

Other than those two thinks Utah is great (well almost.)

Hey, it's not that bad. You can get pretty good beer at Squatters. Liquor stores (as little as there are around here) have awesome selections of beer. (Pilsner Urquell, Lev, Staropramen, HB, etc...)

I have 25% and 35%. I believe that 50% in the back is legal here.

The woman at the inspection place said that many people get the car registered first, and then get the dark tint installed. That way they can keep it for two years.

Where's Squatters? Is that in the SLC?

That's kind of what I meant by "well almost" in my original post, but thanks for elaborating...

Well..he are your options..Have legal tint, or have illegal darker tint and risk getting shot by a patrolman because he "thinks" he saw you go for a gun through the dark tint.

I was just about to comment with regards to law enforcement.

Tint, from our perspective, is dangerous, and it impedes our ability to protect ourselves. I will cite for tint infractions, and I will make no qualms about it. Too many friends have been put in jeopardy because of it.

Now as far as front plates are concerned, no worries! I don't utilize a front plate on my BMW either.

That's a good point. I wouldn't want to put anyone's life at risk. I'll trade in my dark tint for no speeding ticket. If you see me flying by with light tint, don't pull me over. On the other hand, you might be more hesitant to pull me over if I had dark tint.

If getting pulled over, I roll down all my windows, turn on all the interior lights and put my hands on the wheel.....anything i'm missing?

O yea, should mention that my tint's 10% all the way round....

I'm glad my car is registered in South Carolina. I would have been pissed if I had to take my tint off. Utah isn't too bad once you get passed the stuff you mentioned...lol

You live in AZ.. We have the most lax enforcement of window tint, party due to the summer sun. In my entire life of living here I have only known 1 person to get a tint fix it ticket in AZ and it was because the kid was a douch to the cop and the ticket was in addition to speeding, not having working turn signals, not having cats, or proper display of license plate (custom pick up and he had his plate in the back window behind his limo tint all around)
