Everyone has good or bad days and that is understandable. But, with that said, the interaction an officer has with John Q Public is similar to any customer service job IMO. If someone behind your local grocery store service desk used the attitude and language some officers use, would you still shop there?I told my wife about your first post and we both said there is more to that then just being mad about a warning ticket. Cops are people too they run the gambit from good to bad just like us.
Id like to say a little something about my earlier post......Ive been called out by a few people, whos opinion i would trust to be non-biased and honest, and told that my post came off as unnecessarily harsh and somewhat condescending towards Rob. Also, that the smiley face I chose to use was taken as insult.
I meant no harm by my post, and thought that what I was posting was appropriate and on point at the time. On further review, I can see how it may have been taken other ways, and the intent of it lost by way of my chosen wording. I have talked to Rob, let him know of my mistake, and I would like to put out here, that I feel that that post was out of character for me, and with any luck will choose my words a little better next time! I respect Robssxt, not only as a member here, but as an LEO as well.
Also to clarify in my OP, when I said Front windows I didn't mean the Front windshield, I was talking about the front doors (windows). That is what the dealership factory matched for me, not the Front Windshield.
I wrote a letter to his chief and will be waiting on a response.Wow ...........that DEF DOES TURN EVERYTHING AROUND...Are you going to file a report??
^one more clarification, for yours as well as others sake, front windows aren't tinted from the factory, so by factory match you are referring to the dealership (not the factory) matching your front windows tint to the "factory" tint of your rear windows. Is this correct?
This may be a source of confusion if you try to explain to an LEO that they are factory matched tint, becuase they will most likely assume that you are incorrect, knowing that cars don't come with tinted front (side) windows.
Let us know. It might take a while though, you know how quick the government is to get ANYTHING done. I'd wait a reasonable amount of time then do a follow up on your letter.I wrote a letter to his chief and will be waiting on a response.
What was the factor percent tintOk CM Fam, I just got pulled over at 2:30 eastern in this little BS town of Speedway, IN which is located in the CITY OF INDIANAPOLIS. The cop said that he pulled me over because I had no tailights on. I explained to him that they are tinted and are on and also show brighter once I press the brakes, as well as the third brake light is visible (not tinted). He went to his car to run my plates, then came back and said I'm going to let you go, but you should be some replacement lights to drive around and then put these on for show. "For Show, really I don't "show" my car, that's the reason its all black you SIMPLE SIMON,!!!!!!!" Then he said you are lucky I don't have my window tint kit to measure your window tint b/c I thinki it is illegal. So then I told him that it is straight from the factory 2008 and I had the DODGE dealership "Factory match" the front window tint for me. His SIMPLESIMON @ss said that even factory tint can be illegal.................REALLY, ARE YOU SERIOUS, WHAT THE DO YOU THINK THAT DODGE IS GOING TO PUT A TINT ON CAR THAT IS IILEGAL IN ANY STATE? So now I'm pissed b/c I've been riding with these tinted tails for a while now with no problems and I have a couple questions. 1. If there are any COPS, Firemen, whom ever who knows where I can find the LAW in Indiana regarding tinted tail lights, could you please direct me in that path. 2. I know the state law for tint is 30% of visible light must past through, The Dealership told me that. But has any one heard that the factory tint could "be" illegal? 3. Here is the picture of my tinted tailsWhat do you think? I'll post a night picture tomorrow. 4. Also any one know of a good place to get one of those LED Brake light bars for the rear? How do you hook one up if you don't have the trailer package?
