I just got a ticket for having window tint. Officer wrote down that it is a traffic violation, which will go on my record. I thought window tint was a non-traffic violation? i got pulled over in Renton, near the Brown Bear Car Wash.
The officer said he pulled me over because me exhaust was over the legal decibel level, and my tint was too dark.
BTW, this is my first ticket!!!!! I don't want it to go on my driving record!
anyone else recently got a ticket for their window tint?
i just want to make something clear. I don't think the officer was a punk by giving me a ticket. I DO think he could have let me off with a warning, but he was just doing his job. FWIW, he mentioned that in the city of renton there are 128 officers of which 2 are designated for vehicle equipment violations. so its understandable that the majority of people have not gotten tickets for this.
