My mom got pulled over because the driver/passenger side windows were too tinted?
Question: He said that he'll let her off with a warning, but that she has to get the windows changed. I've seen dozens of cars like ours, and they all have the same dark windows. It's a family van, she got it at Hyundai 6 years ago. We're not spies or anything. We live in Minnesota, is this a law? Also, the officer pulled her over at night so I'm pretty sure he's just being stupid.

A comparison of state laws are at the link below. It looks like in Minnesota you can have 50% VLT tint on the front side windows. That is super duper light tint. 70% VLT is regular glass with no tint at all. In my state the officer has the discretion to do one of the following: - issue a verbal or written warning - issue a $15 fix it ticket - issue a $70 tint ticket - impound the car, release the car after the tint is removed. Did they thank him for just giving the warning? I found people tend to get more angry with warnings - so I quit giving them. Take it back to the dealer and have them make it legal for you!!! Hope this helps
There's a series of decisions to be made - If you are not intoxicated or wanted you will be free to go. If you ask for a ride you may or may not be given one depending on the department's policy - but if they give you a ride they will search you first to determine that you are not armed; so if you are holding the stash you really don't want a ride. In the best circumstances - you're not wanted, no one pissed off the cops, you have a valid license and the car actually belongs to one of you and is properly registered and insured - they may let you drive it away instead of towing it. The big problem with cops giving people 'a ride' somewhere is that they could at any moment be dispatched to a hot call, and if you're in the back seat they can't respond. Also, as long as you are in their car their department is responsible for any injury that might happen to you as a result of an accident.
Postal collection boxes - why are they on the passenger side of the street, not the driver's side?
Why does my driver side and passenger side wheels squeak and make loud noises when i turn to pull out?
You can have 50% window tint in Minnesota. As for the cop being stupid, no. Did your mom buy the car in Minnesota because if she did, I can guarantee it wouldn't have window tint that was illegal. The drivers side window can have no tint, by the way. I live in Minnesota. And if she just got a warning, why is it a big deal?
Ive actually been told by multiple cops that you should never ever breathe. Because then they can only hold you over night for small charges where as if you breathe your in deep trouble. And if the driver is sober it doesnt matter if your a minor or not. The cop shouldnt even ask the passenger to breathe because theres no point. The only way they can get into trouble in that situation is if the cop can prove the driver was at the party with the alcohol or if there is an open container in the car.
Yeah you will get in worry for that. My mom has limo tint on all her vehicles yet her pores and skin is particularly delicate to the solar, her dermatologist even wrote her a notice to coach to the police officers if she ever gets pulled over. So in case you have a clinical notice you're advantageous.
Are you injured? Was the other driver insured to cover that as well as car repairs? You can sue for anything, but unless you have a good reason, it may not be the best idea. The attorney will make a lot of money, but otherwise, how will it help anything? I'm sure you're not trying to turn a profit on the accident. Being involved in a collision is bad enough, but I sure would hate to think everything had to end up in court.
