Ya he told me when he pulled me over that if i removed it then he would waive it in court. Then he never showed in court and come to find out he wrote the ticket as improper mounting of license plate

Answer: The law that covers window applications is MCL 257.709 . The use of tinting is limited to the rear side windows, the rear window if the vehicle has outside mirrors on both sides, and the top 4 inches of the front side windows. There is a limited exception for medical necessity with a doctor's prescription, which allows for tinting to be applied to the front side windows as well. Michigan does not have a specification for the darkness of the window application, but does prohibit applications with a solar reflectivity greater than 35%.

i've got my eye doc's note for astigmatism if i ever get pulled over for tints in my srt, but its 20% so hopefully the officer wouldn't be able to make the distinction; any decent eye can pretty easily tell between 35% and lower. that's why unless i get accidentally get stuck in the rain i drive windows down all day, plus i like the breeze

I've been pulled over for tint violations in Michigan. This one time I was pulled over on 75N heading to a DNO member's house. The officer came up and asked if I knew why he was pulling me over. I knew I wasn't speeding as the car was very noticable at the time. I said no. The officer with a very large grin on his face said, well sir here in Michigan you cannot have tint on the front windows of your vehicle.

I smiled back and told him my vehicle was registered in Ontario, Canada and that my tint is legal for the location where the vehicle was registered. He wrote up the ticket anyway.

In court I brought a copy of the Ontario Highway Traffic Act and read the sections pertaining to tint laws for Ontario, Canada. The judge looked at me funny and asked why I brought another country's law book. I told him I lived in Canada and the car was registered in Canada. He laughed, looked at the officer and said, "Michigan vehicle equipment code only applies to vehicles registered in this state." The officer got beat read and another officer nudged him and laughed.

I did get off that citation....

BUT, not the 5MPH under the limit ticket I got in Woodhaven, MI. That's another story.
