>Of course, it was only two days ago I got pulled over and given a ticket
for window tint. It wasn't my car, and I was more than a little surprised
("do you know why I pulled you over"). It wouldn't have been so bad, but
right after pulling out a car passed me, speeding, with tinted windows! No
ticket. Spent the rest of the night counting cars. ~1 out of 5 had tinted
windows (and a lot of cars suspiciously driving with the windows down). Not
even sure what the law is, but....
In Minnesota: Windows in passenger cars must allow at least 50% light
transmission. Of course, the only city that seems interested in enforcing
this is Eagan. They bought light-transmission meters for all their police
cars. I't has gotten to be a joke: You see a car with super-dark windows
and you say, "Stay out of Eagan!"
The fact that Eagan has lately been stricken by a great flood is pure
coincidence, not divine retribution.
