yesterday i was stopped near claughton village by a police officer on a motorbike, he asked me to follow him to the arriva bus station on Laird street, where police were rounding up vehicles for checks.
while i was there they used a light meter on my windows and ordered me to strip them off, i refused and they gave me til midnight the same evening to remove them
they also looked at the height of my car and checked if it was to low by inspecting all around the vehicle
i recieved 3 point on my licence and a 60 fine and i also had to remove my tints
im so gutted and disgusted and im jus warning every one that the police are clamping down on modified cars, and thats why i was targeted,

watch out peeps

You wanna go down south mate, the busies are checking if mods are listed on peoples insurance policies right down the smallest mods possible! Round were my sister lives (WSM, Bristol) the police pull any young person with visable mods on their cars!

I suppose at the end of the day if your tints were illegal and vehicle too low, you can't really complain. But it is a new one them doing a vehicle check just because of mods locally.

i got my 3 points for the actual tints as the police said that it is a dangerous and hazadous modification mad

what pisses me off is that i have spent so much money improving the appearance of my car for police who have nothing better to do to give me 3 points, i should have just put my foot down through a camera or something, i still recieved the same punishment

i also made sure my engine was switched off during the check or they would have done me for my exhaust too, lol

If the modifications are illegal, I fail to see why you are pissed off... It doesnt matter how much money you spend, if they are against the law and you get caught, you will get done for it. Simple as.

Unfortunatly the law on tinted front windows is quite clear, and the night time dangers obvious.

Just another word of advice to peeps, should you get pulled, always be polite and co-operative, no matter how trivial you feel the justification is. 95% of the people they stop give them jip, and they often tend to go less harsh when people dont give them a hard time.

Dont stick you tounge in their arse, but maybe if you had taken the tints out there and then you might have got away without points and a fine smack

wel said stuy, you wnt find may people these days that dnt have any kind of convictions on there license whether it be 3 points or crashes to there name

just gotta take it on the chin and learn from it, thats why im so jubious about tints, just think its prob not worth it,

as for the lowering bit you know yourself theres nothing wrong with the car so you didnt have to worry, at the end of the day if i got stoped i know im ok as i know even though the car is decked the front tyres clear the arches on full lock and the rear arches dnt touch the tyres although the back doesnt matter as it would only b the same as having a full car

just take head mate all i can say

gutted for ya mate but those points were easily avoidable IMO. If i were in ur shoes i'd have pulled the tints off there and then. I will be tinting the front windows of my car,and when i get pulled for them they'll come off,and if i get points then thats fine,just gotta give the flange respect and not argur with them.

P.S How the hell can a car be too low? and how can an exhaust be too loud? Think bugatti veyron for lowness (is a veyron illegal cos its ALWAYS lower than a lowered corsa,and is a DB9 illegal cos its audible from 2 miles away?

AFAIK there is no law on lowness (as long as ur exhaust isnt scraping on the floor all the time) and loudness for cars

Thats not the point tho mattty he is still going to be pissed off, i know his mods were illegal but that cant stop him from being annoyed!

i got done for parking on double yellow lines, yes it was illegal but it still pissed me off!

3 points is going abit to fat tho, i fine maybe yes

scoop if ya get caught mate with the tints you still get the points, it dosnt matter if you pull them off there and then, they told me that the item was a danger

as kate said its very harsh to give 3 points a fine would be more acceptable
