Put a cat in your car. It's really not that hard.

For those of you in VA, if you can look up 46.2-962, you will thank me. Good luck finding it though, and yes, it is actively on the books as a law, and works to YOUR favor by a ridiculous level. Its been a law since 1999.

Doesn't the measuring device emit the UV when used at night? I've never seen the device, so I'm not too sure.

Take it from someone who had his windows tested at the roadside by a VA state trooper - the measuring device has it's own light source. To measure the tint, they have you roll your window down half-way and slide the device onto the glass (it sits on the glass with a light source on one side and a sensor on the other). Doesn't matter if it's day or night.

going through the code last night and taking a look at 46.2 and the section containing 962 has been modified, it would appear that the law has been repealed. there is no 46.2-962 any more. we have access to some older books, and sometimes the new books (hard copies) have explanations of whats been removed or modified. will report back later with more info once the hard copies have been gone over.

My little moment with the Virginia State Police.

I had no front tag, (my own fault) and 20% tint (also my own fault).

3 cruisers ended up parked behind me on the shoulder. I took my ticket for tint, no ticket for front plate and the best part was when I started up the car and the exhaust sang it's song.

I scooted out of there quickly, as the skinny younger cop is clearly gesturing towards me to the cop who ticketed me. I don't think he liked the Borlas.

I can't seem to even find that Chapter online. Online lists almost everychapter yet excludes Chapter 9 which contains 46.2-962. I was thinking about stopping by a law library to see what it was. The curiosity is killing me.

the code jumps from 46.2 870ish straight to 1000 the section was removed. when virginia takes back something they say they really do it. its no where on line at all, but i have sources looking this up right now.

Haha I typed the wrong code, here you guys go, with the complete law included!

46.2-936. Arrest for misdemeanor; release on summons and promise to
appear; right to demand hearing immediately or within twenty-four hours;
issuance of warrant on request of officer for violations of 46.2-301
and 46.2-302; refusal to promise to appear; violations.

Whenever any person is detained by or in the custody of an arresting
officer, including an arrest on a warrant, for a violation of any
provision of this title punishable as a misdemeanor, the arresting
officer shall, except as otherwise provided in 46.2-940, take the name
and address of such person and the license number of his motor vehicle
and issue a summons or otherwise notify him in writing to appear at a
time and place to be specified in such summons or notice. Such time
shall be at least five days after such arrest unless the person arrested
demands an earlier hearing. Such person shall, if he so desires, have a
right to an immediate hearing, or a hearing within twenty-four hours at
a convenient hour, before a court having jurisdiction under this title
within the county, city, or town wherein such offense was committed.
Upon the giving by such person of his written promise to appear at such
time and place, the officer shall forthwith release him from custody.

Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section, if prior
general approval has been granted by order of the general district court
for the use of this section in cases involving violations of 46.2-301
and 46.2-302, the arresting officer may take the person before the
appropriate judicial officer of the county or city in which the
violation occurred and make oath as to the offense and request issuance
of a warrant. If a warrant is issued, the judicial officer shall proceed
in accordance with the provisions of Article 1 ( 19.2-119 et seq.) of
Chapter 9 of Title 19.2.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, in cases involving
a violation of 46.2-341.24 or 46.2-341.31, the arresting officer
shall take the person before a magistrate as provided in
46.2-341.26:2 and 46.2-341.26:3. The magistrate may issue either a
summons or a warrant as he shall deem proper.

Any person refusing to give such written promise to appear under the
provisions of this section shall be taken immediately by the arresting
officer before a magistrate or other issuing officer having jurisdiction
who shall proceed according to the provisions of 46.2-940.

Any person who willfully violates his written promise to appear, given
in accordance with this section, shall be treated in accordance with the
provisions of 46.2-938.

Any officer violating any of the provisions of this section shall be
guilty of misconduct in office and subject to removal therefrom upon
complaint filed by any person in a court of competent jurisdiction. This
section shall not be construed to limit the removal of a law-enforcement
officer for other misconduct in office.

You arent very bright huh? You understand that patrol cops are not detectives. It's sad to say, but in this day and age, patrol units are almost a reactionary work. 'crime prevention' as you think, is usually assigned to a special unit within a precinct. Beat units' jobs are to take police reports, be visible as a crime deterrent, and be as pro-active as possible. Sadly, being proactive 99% of the time means doing field interviews and traffic stops for what ever legal reason they can. So yes, stopping some one for tint, muffler, no brake light, etc, is quite a good reason and way to get into things that are otherwise 'hidden'.

I forgot, the police are supposed to be omnipotent godlike individuals with zero faults, also able to predict crimes ala Tom Cruise in that crappy movie with the psychics.

wow....gotcha there. Ya know I have things done to my car that I know I shouldn't. I have dark tint, I have a loud exhaust....but ya know what, I know that I could get stopped at any time because of them and I have no defense to justify them. I can't say oh I'm sorry officer I have 20% tint on here because I think you should be hunting down murderers instead of coming after me. I'm not saying "DavC825"'s dad deserved it, but don't complain that there are officers out there who do their job.
