Window Tint. Any CA LE want to sign off my fix it ticket?

Got pulled over by the CHP the other day for tinted windows on the driver and front passenger window of my 4runner. The tint is about 50%
His reasoning was that window tint violations have gotten "out of control" lately in Santa Cruz county and they've been asked to crack down on it.

Nice enough officer. He didn't give me a hard time or anything, just wrote me a fix it ticket.

Now, what is the reasoning behind the window tint laws in California?

Is it just a money making scheme?
I can think of three reasons besides that:

1) The tint obstructs my view outside the vehicle.
--however, I can wear sunglasses if I want and not get pulled over for that. yes, there is night time, but hey, I can wear sunglasses at night and not get pulled over for that either. And also, how much time do we spend looking out the side of the window. Dark tint doesn't really obstruct the drivers vision unless there is a light on inside the car. Realistically, if there's a light on inside the car, it doesn't matter if there's tint, it's going to obstruct the driver's view.

2) Tint makes it difficult for officers to identify the driver.
--motorcyclist may wear tinted visors and a helmet. This obviously obstructs the view of the rider from the officers. So, why not outlaw the use of tinted visors and helmets?

3) Tint makes it difficult for officers to view whether or not the driver is wearing their seat belt and or using a hand held device.
--The tint law was in effect before the seat belt law and before the hand held device law.


Any help would be appreciated. I'm a law abiding citizen that just likes the look of tint on my black truck. No harm intended.

Oh heavens no.

I'm only asking someone to take an anonymous stand against one of the many ridiculous and pointless vehicle codes that only prove to annoy and rob the time of the rest of us law abiding citizens.

Specifically any LEO that disagrees with the CHP's overzealous handing out of chicken shit tickets.

And I know they're out there.

I've driven by the county Sheriffs out here plenty of times without a bat of an eye from them over my tinted windows. That's because they have better, more important things to do than hand out bullshit traffic tickets. Like track down criminals and rid the streets of people that threaten the well being and safety of the rest of us.

PM me. I give you my sworn word that I the vehicle no longer violates any reasonable vehicle codes.

Obvious Illegal troll is obvisouly illegal. Don't post stuff like this again. On the internet asking an officer to lie and offering to lie under oath yourself...nice.
