agreed, if your allowed tint in your state just do the llegal amount or take it off, or you can go through alot of unnecessary trouble and bullshit to illegally obtain paperwork that says your special enough to have darker windows.

you dont think that when a cop sees a loud ass SRT4 roll by with darker windows he's not gunna pull them over...of course he is, he knows your plan
And that my friend is what we call sterotyping. I should be able to have my windows as dark as I want. I don't smoke pot, I don't drive with an open container, I don't even smoke cigarettes in my car. I am in no way creating any harm to an officer or others. I mind my business and am respectful to law enforcement when I get pulled over. I roll my windows completely down so they can see every move I make to make them feel more comfortable. It's BS that a "cop" has the nerve to pull me over and harass me over some F'ing tint when he can actually make my tax dollars worth something by going after meth heads or people stealing shit. "Cops" these days are what I now call "Revenue Collectors". I've learned to accept the fact that that's all their good for. 80% collecting money for the city and 20% actually going after those committing a dangerous crime.

Actually, where I used to live, the window tint BS was so bad with the cops that the city declared that police officers can no longer pull you over for window tint alone, you have to be doing something else to get pulled over. Now its been a couple of years, and the cops had laid off the pulling over for tint in our city.:thumbsup:

I hope you aren't speaking to me. I spend every day with pain. And if I can get a script and tint my windows to help that pain. I will.

Some of us are dealt a shitty hand and get some relief from the system. It's not lying or cheating anyone. It's the right thing to help. All my vehicles are done now and are alot cooler and more comfortable to drive.

Way to abuse the system.
+1 for that. Some people really have a condition and in your case you are talking about failing some sort of medical exam on purpose so that you can illegally obtain this permit. Just to remind you, that is fraud. I suppose I just don't feel it necessary to go through all of that and lie. Just my $.02 and.... you asked.

20% on car...black gets hot. Only drive on weekends and summer days. A bit too dark for everyday and night driving. Would piss cops off pulling me over and getting exemption out eveytime. 35% on truck. Daily driver. Ok darkness and doesn't get near as hot as black car. Both are illegal in Ohio without exemption.

I was born with strabismus, a permanent eye muscle disorder and a trochlear nerve palsy. I've had five surgeries to attempt to correct it but I'm still monocular, right eye primary, with roaming in the left. The photosensitivity is more prominent in the left but present in the right. I went through a field of vision test to prove that I was able to drive with only one eye, I have only really had one eye forever, but I totally lost it last year and gained some of it back a few months ago.

I do have a prescription, but due to my condition cannot wear glasses because they impede upon any peripheral vision that I may be able to gain, so I have contacts. -2.00 in both. 20/15 vision and I passed the FOV test with I believe it was near 130 degrees out of my primary eye (dont quote me I never read that report).

This is definitely something for you to look into, it makes driving that much easier for you, and more comfortable without the horrendous headaches. There are a few of us out there who have a purpose for our tint, outside of how much better it makes a car look.
damn .. deff props to u .. thats crazy how u can pull off driving with the vision problems u have

btw ur car = pure seckz .. paint job is badass

i have a kill switch for my windows under my steering wheel so if i get pulled over for tint and my windows are down, i can throw the switch and tell the officer that i can't roll my windows up. usually they tell me to start the car and they try and when they see they do not work, they leave me alone with a "get it fixed" type comment. this has worked perfectly fine for me the 2 times i've gotten pulled over and i have 5% all the way around and 50% on the windshield.

if your spouse has a exempt sticker is it possible to have it on all cars in the household or just the one? my wife has very sensitive eyes and shes looking into seeing a optometrist

Yeah your local DMV has documentation that you have to go get filled out by a doctor then they analize the info with a judge or some shit like that.....long overdue process that honestly is a waiste of time.

redhotneon: Here in RI you have the option of having it on two vehicles, so you are allowed two stickers. I use it on my car, and my mom's car, since that is the only other vehicle in the household that I drive.


srt4Rob: Thank you! Its not easy, and it took some getting used to. I don't drive erratically, I don't tailgate, and I drive slow. Just to assure safety. I passed all my tests to be able to drive with flying colors, but that doesn't mean its easy.

^^ur welcome ..

when u said u lost it last year .. do u mean u lost most of the vision in ur dominant eye ??

it must be tough to actually drive with one good eye .. and worry about the traffic that is on the other side
the world is full of ppl that have perfect eye sight and cant drive for shit ... and are oblivious of their surroundings and other motorists ..

the same test u took should be added to the existing dmv test when ppl get their lisence .. hahah deff would make ppl better drivers.

I agree with you, it definitely should be. I lost the vision in my passive eye, but the cornea in my good eye was near destroyed after a botched surgery. I had four within a year to fix the problems I was having.

Although I don't use my left eye to see, I do use it when my brain feels that the object I'm trying to look at is better suited to be seen out of my left eye. Whereas people who use both eyes to see (binocular vision) would simply turn both eyes towards the object. This can't be seen to someone looking straight at me, my eyes look totally normal, its just something thats done within my brain dependent upon angle, proximity etc. But when I had a patch on it, I couldnt use it at all. Thats where the problem lied.

Its so complex it baffled most doctors in Boston since its a very very rare case of the disease. My fourth surgery was actually a great stepping stone towards helping other people like me regain proper vision without seeing double. It was totally experimental and had never been done before, but at that point I had nothing to lose and everything to gain, as well as helping others in the process.

Just takes quite a bit more attention to do things that it would for your average binocular person. My world is like a regular nintendo game....where everyone elses world looks like an Xbox would....3D

If his situation is anything like mine. (Rare) many places won't touch you because of liability issues. They are afraid of messing with the unknown and being sued or causing more probs. I've been to 6 nerve specialists who won't deal with me. So pain therapy is my only option until I can find help.

I know this thread is a little old, but here is my story. I recently went to the eye doctor. I told her to check for light sensitivity. She did and said I had it fairly bad. I asked her to wright me a note for to take to the courthouse so I could get a tint exemption sticker. She gave me a little slip and I took it to the courthouse. I told the lady at the main desk that I needed to exchange my eye doctor form for a official exemption form. She asked for my VIN number and had me sign something and then I was done. I now have a pink slip displayed on my windshield that makes me exempt from Mississippi tint laws forever. It never expires and if i change cars i just go back to the courthouse and give them my new VIN number. Not near as much trouble as what some of these other trolls were saying in previous threads.

You're a dick
Dude...pay the fine and realize your tint is to fucking dark, you don't need to be a piece of shit and work the system because you're a cheapskate and don't want to redo your tint. You are the exact type of person that would call the cops and request them for a simple complaint, and then call again two minutes later and ask where the hell they were. You are the type that makes cops complete dicks...if I were the PD..I'd would have made you remove it before I let you leave.
