    i got a tinting ticket last year. i bought the car already tinted, but the back was dark and the front was maybe 35-25%. i wasn't speeding, doing anything illegal, nothing, but the EPS decided to pull me over, most likely because i'm a young asian male in a fairly nice car (=drug dealer apparently).
    i see at least 5-10 cars a day with limo in the front and i cannot understand why they don't pull them over.

    Front tint is illegal in Alberta.

    If you look suspicious, they'll pull you over.

    haha, my uncle is an officer and his brother had the same thing happen (bought a car with the front tinted already and pulled over).. the tint isn't dark enough that you can't see who i am though

    i know it's illegal but i see many cars with honestly 5% on the front.. and nothing is done to them.. i guess that's why this is venting

    I'm borrowing my buddies CTS with front tint @ like 7%. Has a loud system to, and I can't hear when the cops are coming up. Just 10 minutes ago, I'm driving and making a left. Wonder why the fuck the guys aren't going the other way. then I see a cop make the left to.

    Question to blocker : Is this a regular occurence?

    Sorry, I am missing something....

    Your are driving friends CTS with tint...
    You can not hear anything....
    You make a left...
    Guys have stopped, you don't know why...
    A police officer makes a left too...

    What is the question? do police make left turns?.. yes.. sometimes right ones too..
