Call the State Police and ask them about the noise law and your blacked out tail lights are illegal too. You have to be able to see the red reflectors made into the lights. I work nights too, you can stop at Walmart. What state are you from?
tint is within legal limit, tailight blackouts (which aren't illegal because you can clearly see the brake lights when lit up)and there is no noise limit unlessthere is a posted noise ordinance, which there is not. Working night shift and having to sleep during the day prevented me from getting to the autoparts store for a week. (all this was explained to the officer.)The fact that he knowingly pulled me over 3 times in the same week, knowing that i wouldn't be able to replace it until the following week, IMO, is harrassment, unless he was going to give me a ticket.
