Got a ticket in the WJ today! D'oh!
We bought her Jeep with illegal window tint. This is my first window tint ticket in my life, and most every vehicle I've ever owned has had moderately illegal window tint--including my TJ. It was a trooper, and he was kind of a prick about it. You could tell he was a ticket writing machine with how fast he talked and how fast he wrote the ticket. Within a few seconds of stopping, he was already at the window with a tint meter in his hand. He tested the front windows to be 16%. Unfortunately, 50% is the darkest you can have the front windows in Virginia, and 35% in the rear.
I thought all WJ's came with privacy glass in the rear, but maybe not? The tint seems to match all the way around. I guess we'll get the front windows re-tinted to be legal and hopefully they'll drop it in court like they normally do. Kind of pissed because it's not my vehicle, per say (it's hers, and we're not married or anything, and I'm going to have to miss a day of work to make it to court out of town--OR, pay more than $90 and suck it up.
