Tickets

Post by streetracerwhite » Wed May 27, 2009 8:09 pm

So on my way home for london ontario, couped up in a truck for 17 hours, I finally got the the shop to go home with the car. On my way home I notice a unmarked state trooper coming the opposite way I was driving, (I wasn't speeding). He turns right and a few cars go by that were behind him... not thinking about it or remembering, The speed limit goes from 55 to 35. By this time the cop was behind me as I was slowing down and hits the lights. I pulled over, tired and ready to go home, he walks up to the car and says you were going 53 in a 35. Noticing the window tint on my window he asks how dark it was. I had no idea, I bought it like this. He rubs his fingers behind it and says start peeling it off now, have you been warned before? I have back in september, but been pulled over since then and never got anything said about it, so I replied no. He goes back, prints of the prior warning, and notices the front license plate warning from the same pull over back in september. He walks out and notices that wasn't taking care of either. He walks back to the squad car, comes back 5 minutes later with a ticket for no front license plate, to dark of window tint, and 53 in a 35. Lets just say I wasn't the happiest after I got home and added all the fines for a grand total of $389. I hope they have bundle packages available.

I know. He said it was 25%. I think his gauge was off.

Stock windows are tinted 70% I'm assuming you have 35% on top of that 70*35%=24.5% light
Pretty close. Definitely a bummer though, my friend got caught with 2% but they only made him pay off the most expensive ticket out of the 2 he received. Hopefully you'll be as lucky

This reminds me of the $247 parking ticket I got.

10 minutes over my time limit at a meter: $25
plastic cover over license plate: $111
not displaying current tabs: $111
I hope they have bundle packages available
This part reminds me of the cable commercial for their phone, internet and tv bundle.
