What is the law in New York?
The front driver and passenger have to be 70%... the back you can have as dark as you like. I didnt get the front done at 70% because that would have been a waste of money its sooo light

Be happy. At least you can have tinting. In Michigan, I believe it's illegal to have ANY aftermarket tinting done that's not of factory production unless you have a medical note.

FYI 70% is the factory tint.

Nyc police have more important things to do then pull people over for tints.

The police are real strict here in california as well. I've been pulled over multiple times by the same police officer because i hadn't taken off my tint after the first time he gave me the fix it ticket.

Go back to the place where you got the tint job and have them write you out a receipt for the tint removal. Submit the receipt and the ticket to the court house before the court date and your off the hook. So many people in my area do this and they get off with out going to court.

I never had a problem, except for in Flushing, where they'll write you a ticket for looking at them crooked. Anything darker than 20%, and you are looking for trouble, though. 35% won't get you in trouble...

in NJ front tints are illegal, but a lot of people have them. IT depends on the cop. I had 35% all around on my old car and didn't get pulled over once, but I had to take them off for inspection.

That's why if you have tint that illegal, especially on the front ones, which seem to be the ones cops pick on, roll both your front windows down before you stop, that way you'll have a better chance. This is not wise, though, if you have crank windows (leaning over and someone will bust a cap :D I know I would)

and tell you to roll up the windows.
Which you can lawfully refuse to do. If he wants to search your car (which asking you to move any part of the car for him to see something he can't see from the outside is) he needs either your consent or a warrant.

And most of the time when you tell them no, they can't search your car without a warrant, they will call in and get one :( Happened to me once when I told the officer I had a permit to carry a handgun and then he got all suspicious....of course, he found nothing, except my gun, and a bottle of pop, lol
