Busted for Window Tint

I have 15% tint on my front windows and got pulled over by a bike cop for it. I have a month to get the tint taken off and signed off. My question is, not saying that I would but could you just put in the badge nummber and signature and all from a cop from one of my many other tickets. I dont see how they could ever know that it wasent the accual officer that signed it, casue when I got my tires writen off casue they were to wide the cop just signed the ticket and thats it, he dident record anything at all. Im not saying im gona break the law but really dont want to take the tint off as I have alot of expensive stereo equipment and stuff that could get stolen. Thanks

Personally, I think forgery like that would make a bad situation MUCH worse.

But how would they ever know it wasent a real officer.

1. Their is no written proof that a officer wrote it off (even if he really did)
2. They give you the ticket back so they dont have a record of who wrote it off

It seems like it would work no problem, but then again why wouldent everyone just do this? there has to be a catch, but I cant figure out what it is.

Sounds like you need to make buddies with a local Joe Law. Not only will he let you in on the secret, but if you can't do it yourself he might sign it for you.

On the other hand, if the guys in your area care enough to write one ticket, why wouldn't they write you another one if you keep the tint?

Not a good idea at all, trust me, if you have delt with one officer on the situation, all the others know about it as well. That's just how it works. Laws, good or bad, are there for a reason, if you break them, in a big way or small way, you are just like the rest of the people who break the law....WRONG!!!!!! Forgery (if you use another officer's name) can get you in trouble, or if you make one up, that's impersonating an officer which is also bad JuJu... Have you informed your insurance company of the expensive stereo equiptment in your vehicle? I told my insurance company and they told me as long as I have receipts of the equiptment and it was stolen, they would replace it. This is just my feelings and opinions, take them how every you like....JP

You know it is illegal to have windows tinted in CA. Why make it worse. I would say forgery/fraud would put you in the can. Scrape the window's.

The whole idea of forging the ticket is a really bad idea. Even if you have the paper copy of teh ticket I can assure you it was entered either into the computer or is still on the carbon copy the officer keeps. They cannot write a ticket without recording it. What happens if the same officer stops you again? How you gonna explain it? "I umm took the tint off like you told me. But uhhh I put it back on later." Just take off the tint. Besides, unless you tinted the windshield the crooks can look in that way.

I would listen to the other guys that posted. It would be a really bad idea to forge the name. I wont tell you how the courts know but trust me they do....look at my screen name....

The court clerks get to know the officrs and what their signatures look like, plus they can cal the department and the list goes on and on. Better to just get it taken off and do it the right way. IN california it is illegal to have any kind of tint on the front windows. 26708(a).

Just my 2 cents.

Forging an officer's signature would result in 1 year in either county jail or state prison here in CA. And when it's an officer's signature you're forging, you're going to have one very interested police officer, much more so than when investigating a forged check. It would be very easy to just sign off the ticket, but trust me, it's just not worth the potential trouble.

I wonder if you took the doors off if it would count as you having removed the window tint. The visibility is even better than stock too.

another thought is to get that removable tint, its like static cling or something, you can take it off to get it inspected then put it back on.....
