I would definatly fight that in court, Unless your car was too loud . What did the tickets say... When I got my truck condemmed by the cops I went to the Van Library and read up on the by-laws . Turned out the ticket was way off from what was wrong with my truck, so I won.

it's just a numbers thing, depends on your car as well


if you're tinting a modified sports compact, you're probably 25% likely to get a ticket

something like say, a modified volvo, you probably never get a ticket cuz you'll almost never get pulled over

exhausts have decibal readings..i think lower mainland decibel readings have to b under 95...i think,u can get u're decibel level checked somewhere..don't know where tho...n if u can't find ne thing on restrictions, have u tried the motor vehicle act? they have new editions out every yr..n as 4 the tint..as long as the cop can still see u thru the front window its ok..dark tints r illegal only cause the cops can't see what u're doing..put it this way, if u're a cop n u pull over some guy w/ blacked out windows, as u approach, u don't know what the driver is doing, he might try to run u over or pull agun on u..this way the cop is able to see what u're doing n he has a peace of mind while on duty

thats right, front tints r illegal...but u can also get a fine for having too black of a tint in the rear glass...thats y when u buy tinting film at stores they only come as dark as smoked..but aftermarket shops still offer the darkest tint possible, only cause they know that people want it..altho if u're not breaking ne driving laws, cops usually won't pull u over..they only pull u over at roadblocks, or when u r driving recklessly enough 4 them to pull u over
