Last time my buddy got a tint ticket in Chicago it was $30.

Why not replace it with a lighter shade? Cost about $150 to get installed. If your tickets are $80 each and you get pulled over twice, it's already over the cost of the new tint.

Re: How much will this window tint ticket cost me?

I have had the car for 9 months and had no issues, i will take my chances, but if i get a ticket again for it then i will remove it, its a fix it ticket so it should not cost much or anything at all if i remove it. In New york state 70% is legal, that is garbage, i will bump it up to 35% if i get hassled about it again. at what they are now does not look that dark at all, you can see in the car just fine, what crap lol

Re: How much will this window tint ticket cost me?

Wow long time no see Talon, 70% is complete shit. Thats not even worth putting tint on a car. I would call and see what they will charge you if you dont fix it. Every state is different but I have heard tint tickets here are pretty pricey.

Re: How much will this window tint ticket cost me?

Window tinting laws vary by state, but I personally believe some of the tinting laws our there are ridiculous. You usually see much more relaxed laws in southern states, like down here in Texas.

Re: How much will this window tint ticket cost me?

Getting a prescription for window tints is harder then people say if you truly don't have sensitive eyes. I have a white Chrysler 300 s with black interior with 35%s on the front two windows and 20%s all in the back. If you're traveling anywhere in a good neighborhood your chances of getting caught are a lot higher. I drive around Brighton Michigan a lot which is probably the strictest when it comes to window tints. I've been pulled over twice so far, first time I was pulled over in the summer mid day and got a fix it ticket. Second time I was driving and got pulled over was around midnight and got a $208 dollar ticket. I payed the ticket with no points going on my license and the ability to keep the tints on if I wanted. Talked to some cops at the station and they told me it was a flat rate if you kept getting pulled over, so $208 every time. No points can get put on either because it's not a moving violation. Deciding if I want to take the risk and keep them on cause summers around the corner and I like tints to much. Both times I got pulled over it was on grand river in Brighton Michigan. Less crime means less money and more time for the cops to be looking.
