I was pulled over while driving through Arizona, in a car registered in New Mexico. The tint is below the legal limit of both states, however NM has a 20% tint law while AZ is 35%. While I initially do not have a problem fixing the tint to my state's legal limit, the citation includes a statement that the problem was fixed in accordance with AZ state law. How are they allowed to enforce this law to AZ standards when it is legal in my state? Additionally, am I just never allowed to drive outside of my state or do I have to take off my tint when I want to leave NM?
Furthermore I will be calling in the morning to clarify with AZ state patrol, but there are really no instructions as to who to bring the form to, to sign. It simply has a place for the "Firm" to put their address and signature after they've verified it. There is also no option to forfeit a fine in lieu of fixing it, I've heard you can do otherwise... any help there?
