State Route 13
There I was doing the posted 55 MPH limit and I get pulled over. WHY? My tint is illegal in the state of VA! Yes the tint is custom on my 2000 GrandPrix 3800 GTP, black on black 4 door sedan. When I had it put on at the car dealership I have papers stating it IS LEGAL in ALL 50 states! He put his meter on my front window and told me I was 40% and legal is 20%. Like I know what is legal??! All I know is that my tint is legal in MY state which is Florida. Him and his partner came to my car with their hands on their guns. Nice way to greet me, age 53 and my husband age 78 huh?! YES I have a somewhat questionable looking car…but your never too old to own what YOU want. He even had the nerve to ask me where I was from! You mean to tell me he didn’t check out my license plate before stopping me? Not a good move officer! He then asked me where I was going, I told him home. He asked me if my visit to CT was pleasure or business. I told him I had just come from burying my parents! With that note he let me go. God knows what he would have done. Only an hour to the border and we had to endure this crap. We also stopped at Stingray’s in the Exxon gas station for lunch. A must do while in Cape Charles. Low and behold in walk no less than 9 troopers. Believe me I did NOT speed on 58 west thru Emporia to I-95!
