Dark window tint will get you a ticket

Albany- Albany Police are already giving tickets for window tint that is too dark.

Chasity Waters is proof. She was stopped Tuesday by an Albany Police Heat Officer on Slappey Boulevard.

He told Waters her window tinting was too dark and against the law.

"He said that on May 2nd they passed a law and it's now illegal," she said. "And he took out his thingy and tested my window and said it was 30 percent over and that he was going to go ahead and write me a ticket."

That ticket will cost Waters $148.50. An APD Spokesman told us they warned people several weeks ago they would begin ticketing as soon as the law hit the books.
