Tint Ticket? Never get one again. :) Loophole

Not so much a loophole as a way out.

We got a ticket a while back in my sister-in-laws Mercedes for having too dark of a tint. All she had to do was go to her optomotrist and complain of having sensitive eyes. He wrote a note and all future Tintint tickets and the current one is dismissed. Just an FYI. I live in Cali where it's really strict. I actually do have rather sensitive eyes, so the next time I'm at the optomotrist, I'm asking for a note just in case.

Hope this helps.

Thank for the tip! I probably will be moving to NJ very soon and I do not want to remove my tint.

Sounds good, but I think your sister-in-law got lucky. A smart judge or cop will just say "ever hear of sunglasses?"

Another loophole is to go to any doctor and say that the bright sunlight causes migraine headaches, and sunglasses don't help.

I have a friend with a letter in his car like this, and he's gotten out of a few tickets just by showing this to the cop.

Re: Tint Ticket? Never get one again. :) Loophole

Would anybody happen to know the legal limit in Canada (Ontario)?

Re: Tint Ticket? Never get one again. :) Loophole

hey sicshift: what exactly does the note say? what are her eyes sensitive towards? is it for sunlight? or for other people's lights? if for lights, you can even tint the front windshield...not that you'd want to...but you can!!!

Re: Tint Ticket? Never get one again. :) Loophole

Still not worth it to have illegal tint. I would not be worried about the chicken sh*t $80 ticket your going to get for the tint. I would be worried about the ***** cop that wants to bust you for a DUI after you had 2 or 3 beers with your buddies. Having dark tint gives him a reason to pull you over... Last time I checked my eye doctor wasn't giving "get out of jail free" cards.

Re: Tint Ticket? Never get one again. :) Loophole

I'm not a drunk driver first off, I take cabs. so anyone who's over the legal limit deserves the DUI in my opinion.


Anyway, as to the other poster, it's worked twice with two other people so far. Not failed. I'm not worried about a cheap ticket and I didn't tint too much. (35%) so I don't think I have a high chance like some guys do with the limo tint on the front windows.

Re: Tint Ticket? Never get one again. :) Loophole

Below is from a similar thread. Basically, if an officer lets someone off for a tint job in CA because that person has any kind of note, that officer just doesn't know the code:

CA Vehicle Code-
Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver's View-

26708. (a)
(1) No person shall drive any motor vehicle with any object or material placed, displayed, installed, affixed, or applied upon the windshield or side or rear windows.

(10) Sun screening devices meeting the requirements of Section 26708.2 installed on the side windows on either side of the vehicle's front seat, if the driver or a passenger in the front seat has in his or her possession a letter or other document signed by a licensed physician and surgeon certifying that the person must be shaded from the sun due to a medical condition, or has in his or her possession a letter or other document signed by a licensed optometrist certifying that the person must be shaded from the sun due to a visual condition. The devices authorized by this paragraph shall not be used during darkness.


(b) This section does not apply to any of the following:

(4) Side windows which are to the rear of the driver.

(8) The rear window or windows, when the motor vehicle is equipped with outside mirrors on both the left- and right-hand sides of the vehicle that are so located as to reflect to the driver a view of the highway through each mirror for a distance of at least 200 feet to the rear of the vehicle.


26708.2
Sun screening devices permitted by paragraph (10) of subdivision (b) of Section 26708 shall meet the following requirements:

(a) The devices shall be held in place by means allowing ready removal from the window area, such as a frame, a rigid material with temporary fasteners, or a flexible roller shade.

(b) Devices utilizing transparent material shall be green, gray, or a neutral smoke in color and shall have a luminous transmittance of not less than 35 percent.
************************************************** *********************

So it looks like you can legally tint your front two windows in CA if you have a note from your doctor (on you), but you can't drive at night with it on, and the method of tint has to be nearly instantly removable. This means a note won't work (or shouldn't work if the officer knows the code), since tint jobs are not readily removable. Even then, you still can't go lower than 35%.

Nice try though, I wish we could legally go darker.

Re: Tint Ticket? Never get one again. :) Loophole

I live in NJ but want to make a comment about the "Dr.'s Note" If CA is letting you get away with a "Dr.'s Note"...GREAT. Keep in mind that you DO NOT have to tell the copy why you need to tint your car for medical reasons...that is in violation of the Privacy Act (I work for a Pharma company in drug development)...so hand him the note, if he asks what your condition is...tell him, I don't want you violating my medical privacy...Good luck...
