Yes there is a law in OHIO for how dark the tint is allowed to be.

...and guess what, Jack. He was DRUNK!

No,I would say the cop wrote him for being over the limit,if he'd blown a 2.2 then I'd say he was drunk,hell,two beers and you would register a 1.2

Dr. Info. Typical remark from you! Why not comment on the New Horizons article, or is that to intelligent of a subject for you?

feedthetrolls

Yepper, it did.

Yep,its either that or I thought your license plate light was out or you were weaving,I've heard them all before.

@jack....sounds like you are the town drunk and have had a few DUIs of your own. Your posts make you sound like such a big man.

hit the road jack

This trooper must have been pulling every car with tinted windows over this weekend....pulled us over to "check" ours and its within code but asked if we had been drinking! Yep with the kids in the back and all! Prick cops! But my husband has that previous dui from 10 years ago so that was probably their cause to pull us over! Go get a heroin dealer.......oh wait the court just let them go!

Dr. Information

Because I'm sure every cop has your car memorized from a DUI 10 years ago. Do people really post this crap and think someone is going to feel sorry for them and take them serious. Comical.

LookingDown

well maybe you should change your name to no information........... okay let me put it so you will understand it.........a police cruiser will get behind a vehicle ....... they can run its plates ......... they can get the drivers driving information off the registration ....... they then come up with the reason to pull you over ......... and yes it is comical - that you comment on every single article! do you even have a job? or are you a retired know it all? just curious

Dr. Information

You said you had tinted windows.....its against the law to have a certain tint, which can only be tested on sight while the vehicle is pulled over. Don't tint your windows so dark that it gives them a reason to pull you over.

hit the road jack

Dr. Can you in all honesty say this cop or any other cop can tell how much tint was onthis guys window at 1:42 am? I doubt it and you know he followed him for a while to see if he could get him for some other excuse and used the tinted window trick,besides why is it against the law with the tinted windows? and don't tell me so the cop can see you either.

sanduskysteve

If they followed him - it was to verify he was drunk - at almost double the limit - don't tell me he was driving properly either.

hit the road jack

And how do you know he wasn't? oh,I know,you read he had tinted windows so he had to be drunk,right?your either a dumb billy looking for an argument or just lost.The article NEVER said he was weaving or anything,just tinted windows.

proud mother of 3

He obviousely needed that lesson on how a cop pulls you over! lol No, he did not comment on the New Horizons article, most likely because it was beyond his intelligence. There was no one to call an idiot on there, they were all smarter than him! hahahahah

ladydye_5

I have seen and heard of people who have drove DRUNK with KIDS In the car...that proves NOTHING.

hit the road jack

And where did I say I approved driving drunk? never said that,you just assumed it. I said its pretty bad when the best they can do at 1:30 in the morning is pull you over for tinted windows. If you think because I said 2 beers will put you over 1.2 that its ok,well if you or ANY cop saays they never drove with 2 beers on their breath I'd call you a God D@mn LIAR!

ladydye_5

My comment was not toward you...it was to LookingDown who said that she had 2 kids in the car. If have seen and heard of people who drink, and then drive home with a car full of kids.

LookingDown

well when you pull a family over to check there tinted is Windows and your next question is have you been drinking for no reason at all are you freaking kidding me this cop pulled me over in the same day that this guy did for tinted windows he is looking for things...... glad he got a drunk off the road, but let's find a different way to do it

LookingDown

there with in code....... they are legal , and his next question is have you been drinking - yeah with two small kids in the back - but anyway he was a prick...... funny thing is - is all our family are police ( I have a bachelors in criminal justice) and the family members we talk to agreed....go figure
