They just want to make money so you have to pay bail.

On the bottom of my ticket: driver pulled window down upon seeing CHP.

If its non correctable i wouldnt take it off.

Reason i say this, i had the same ish, fixed it not looking at the thing saying it wasnt correctable, and judge told me it doesnt matter if i would of fixed it or not so i wasted money on taking it off and now i have no tint on the front.

Wow, so much hate for the CHP! Don't hate the cop, hate the lawmaker. We have the most ridiculous laws here in California. When I was in SD a few months ago, I got pulled over because the frames on my sunglasses were too wide, but I got off with a warning. LOL. The cop, an obvious newb, told me that the frames on your glass cannot be more than .5" wide on the sides, because it can obstruct your peripheral vision. Of course, I laughed, and he said he was letting me go with a warning, and that I should brush up on my vehicle code. So naturally, I call my pops (retired cop of 25 years), and ask him about it and he says he'll get back to me. Five minutes later, he calls back and recites word for word the penal code regarding the wearing of sunglasses while driving. Oh, California. Anyways, back on topic.

And, you know the only reason we have these tint laws is because some piece of shit who had a violent record got pulled over, and had tinted windows, but the cop couldn't see that he was wielding a firearm. Cop probably was shot and killed approaching the car = new law against the tinting of front windows on your vehicle.

IMHO, you knew you were breaking the law when you had your windows tinted, so if you're not prepared to accept the consequences, then maybe you shouldn't have done it in the first place! I would still fight to get it reduced to a "fix-it" ticket though. I get all the windows tinted on my cars, but if a cop pulls me over and cites me for it, oh well, he's just doing his job. lol.

i rather keep paying the fine, i think its worth it, full privacy and a daily risk of a tint ticket

Just pull the "im not from California" card, haha. Perhaps they'll let you off for being a CA newb?

non-correctable simply means you pay the bail whether you correct it or not. If you choose not to correct, you're "eligible" to get another ticket the next day, since you are still in violation of the vehicle code.

Having the limo tint really makes the 420 cherry stand out . . .

Best regards,

Just roll your windows down when you see a cop. Plus your "visiting cali" . I've had tinted windows over a year and I havent been citied. But my mom on the other hand has had two citations already.
