PostSubject: $250 ticket for tinted front windows!?!?!?!?!?!?   $250 ticket for tinted front windows!?!?!?!?!?!? I_icon_minitimeJuly 17th 2009, 7:16 pm

Yesterday when I left work, I got to my car which is parked about 3 blocks away and Ihad a ticket on my window. At first I thought it was for parking cuz the neighborhood sucks as far as parking goes and it has permit parking everywhere. So I checked it out and its for tinted front windows and it is for $250! I gotta go now and remove my front tints so I can send in pictures and get the fine removed so I dont have to pay anything. Does anybody have any tips on how to remove the tints easily?

That SUCKS! Jerk Off Dam City & their lets find some Shhhhhh-it policy! Police Alderman's have nothing better to do & come up with! There's some more serious things out there they should be more concerned with! And that fine amount is Hump ridiculous! Especially on a non-moving violation!

I'm not sure, but I think it's a soap & water solution you use. I can't wait for the Tint Bill to pass & we can give this Finger to the City!

Wow, I'm sorry to learn of that hefty ticket issued. That's crazy. Glad you were able to take it off without incident.

Not usually, I'm in Il. quite a bit and I also have 20% all the way around, I usually just get eyeballed by every cop for not having a front plate, and the tints. Never been pulled over though.

Yeah no lie! I got caught doing 85 in a 45 and the ticket was for $100. I guess having tint while parked is more dangerous than doing 40 over, lol.

I've got the same... All around. IL state plates.

I've never gotten a ticket for my tints up front.

I've gotten three or four speeding tickets. Never did they inquire about the windows......

Hmm....

Good to know.. Even though it's still illegal for NC, good to know that I won't be bothered about it at all..

I work Downtown & was just saying that! If I want to take wifey out, We will take the Train & walk! With the rise in parking, sales & entertainment taxes. It can now be very costly, not to mention the possible chance of TICKETs.

Here's a example for you.

I know someone who was clubbing in the City. She came out to find 4 Tix. Tint, No front plate, Expired plates & no city sticker. Yes, some may be legitimate, but this was while the car was parked at 2 in the morn. They were giving the authority to walk cars looking for infractions. They walked the whole block & hit pay dirt.

Oh yeah, don't think you're Safe in the parking garages, they can ticket there too!

Will we finally be able to tint our front windows??? It passed in the house and is now in the senate!!!

Quote:

In related news, HB3325 passed the house recently, and is currently being considered in the senate. Essentially, if this passes (it's already through the senate transportation committee, and the votes suggest there is zero opposition to this), you can go one of three ways:
Same as today: nothing up front, dark as you want in the back
Up to 50% (+/- 5%) in the front, and up to 30% (+/- 5%) in the back
Up to 35% all around.
This is very good news, and apparently, the FOP is actually on-board with this.

Link to the HB3325: http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/Bill...sion=0#actions
Hopefully this will get passed!!!!!



The Governor of Illinois has 60 days from the time he received the bill till he must take action or else it become a full law. And the bill was sent to his desk on 6/26 so by aprox 8/26 it will either be signed into a law or default into a law

I have no tint at all just because I don't want to be hassled. I'd get 35% if this bill passed. I think I'd give it a while first for all of the cops to be educated about it though.

The question is, is Dick Daley in favor of it? He might be if they can get some kind of tax associated with applying tint.

This just another example of Taxation by Traffic Fines. The economy is bad so state County and local government is "supplimenting" their budgets with silly tickets.

Lets start the revolution now! Get your guns and lets hang all the politicians........sorry, sometimes I get carried away.
