So I got pulled over today

Driving very nicely 42 in a 40 cars passing me going 55+ cop sitting in a parking lot up ahead unmarked unit. Cars drive past him so do I . He comes flying out lights on I laugh thinking he's getting the people speeding until he gets behind me. Seriously why? Walks up to my car tells me to roll up the window halfway puts the tint meter on, walks towards the front of my car, checks my tires then checks the backs. Other officer checks the other side tires they go back to car. Come back with 2 tint tickets, one for front windows one for my little rear coupe windows like you have to be effing kidding 2 tickets? I ask why he was checking out my tires. He replies Im a traffic cop and I can check anything about your car I want and I suggest you don't ask any questions if you want to drive away from here. Me having worked on cars and at a shop state that I know the NYSI requirements and if he also carries a tire gauge in his car. Explains he stops cars for bald tires all the time, he gets quite pissed and hands me my tickets and I drive away.

I can't believe he passes up on speeding tickets to pull me over. And being able to check anything on my car good luck. Maybe I have cat-less downpipes go crawl under and take a look. And why 2 tickets I have been pulled over before and only got one ticket. Someone needed to fill a quota today.

2 tickets for the same thing ? Strange. Should probably go to court, you'll pay only one.

Go to court and fight the tickets. Cop will most likely not show and you can state your case to the Judge. If your lucky and don't get a douche Judge then your tickets will probably get thrown. Worst that could happen is you get the fee cut down or taken away altogether and only have to get a signature from a Cop. Good Luck!

#1 Rear side windows non/transparent
#2 Sidewings/sidewindows/non/transparent

Not going to court getting it "removed" and the papers signed off on. Not a big deal just a hassle

Wow they can hit you up twice for having tint? That sucks.

You need tint bad enough to get a Dr to lie for you?

So you have tinted windows, and you received 2 tickets for tinter windows. Why not 6, one per individual window, or per square inch, while we're at it

I'm not your lawyer, but you should not pull something like that. Varies between states but...

Tampering with or fabricating evidence is a Class C felony. If charged, you are facing between three and fifteen years in jail. In addition, the jury may assess a fine not to exceed $10,000. Penalties may also include supervised release and/or probation.
Risk is not worth it.
