I've gotten a tax bill every year from 1999 to 2012 for a vehicle that was initially registered in Georgia, then registered in Texas, then sold in 2005. Yep I havent even owned the car for 7 years and VA still sends me an annual tax bill on it. The saddest part is they know I'm not the owner any more because on the bill they are billing me but list the property owner as unknown.
Thats why Virginia's known as the Communist Wealth State.

here in indiana. our laws are kinda okay. we can get pretty dark tint and be legal. where i live. you could spray paint your windows black and cops wouldnt really care. they dont waste there time here bothering people minding there own business. they actually catch thieves dope heads etc etc here. i drove to work one day without a windshield because i ran out of daylight the day before and passed one of the indiana state troopers on the way there. didnt even look at me. and according to law its mandatory to have a windshield or its illegal to even drive. same goes for the exhausts ride height how low how high. they dont care.

Here in MA the legal tint level is 35%. I have been running 20% for 3 years and the only person to ever bother me about it is the guy at the inspection shop. Kind of funny though because he also told me my rear window is tinted WAY too dark, but it is the factory glass... Don't know why but it really seems that the police tend to look the other way on some small things like tinting when they see a work truck, but my brother was frequently harassed about the tint on his Mustang with 20%. I wouldn't argue with them if they stopped me and told me it was illegal, I would simply say okay and remove it and either retint the same or at the legal level.
One thing that really bugs me though is that there is a shop that is a combination construction company / repair shop. All of their pickup trucks are way illegally tinted (like 5%), lifted huge, and with screaming loud exhaust. I can guarantee they wouldn't truly pass inspection. I'm not trying to hate on them, but just seems a bit unfair. Must be nice to be able to give yourself an inspection sticker when you need one.

I wouldn't worry, Animal. Virginia Beach enforces petty crap like this because it HAS to ... as it needs the refenue to fund its larger-than-usual police force. I'm in south central Virginia almost weekly (I have NC plates) and I have never run into the kind of thing SierraOwner5.3 experienced -- and my windows are stupidly dark up front, too.
It's not a VA enforcement issue ... it's a VA Beach enforcement issue. They're just overly zealous, there, it seems.
