Pulled over for Improper front window tint (measured 15%) (46.2-1052) on I-81 by State Trooper. Should I go to court or pay?
Shenandoah, VA |
First time getting pulled over, clean DMV record (+5 points). Trooper measured driver side window tint with device, result was 15% (Legal is 50% as I've come to know).
Charge: OP W/TINT/SIGNS/DECALS WINDOWS. Listed as Infraction, not misdemeanor. No prior warnings regarding my window tint. Should I remove the illegal tint and show up to court or pay the ticket? It's going to cost me on my car insurance if I plead guilty, but is it worth showing up for court?
The officer did verbally mention that I can fix it and show up to court date. I'm just not sure if it will be dismissed based on that alone.
