It's a secondary offense meaning they can't pull you over for that alone. If they pull you for speeding they can add that tho.
back when i lived in suffolk when i had my 94 mustang gt a cop pulled me over near my house for my tints and only for my tints... and gave me tickets for them.

You sure about that?


I don't think that's the case for NY any longer.


I've gotten pulled over twice with my last cars. Once was in the city when I had 5% tint. Cop pulled up next to me at a light and asked me how dark my tint was (he saw the back windshield bc the rest were down). I said 5%, then he asked me to pull over... got out of the ticket though.

Another time I was driving down a boulevard at 3AM doing the speed limit, if not below since it's always the same damn cop sitting there with a radar gun. He pulls out of his hole and pulls me over. Reason? Tint only, nothing else.
