so I just got a speeding ticket on hwy 99 coming back from the turkey sale in Whistler in my car. The officer walks up as I roll down the window and immediately says "I just clocked you doing 115 in an 80 zone and you have tinted front windows" then he proceeded to use his finger nail to peel away a huge section of my window tint and said he "requires a sample". He then issues me a ticket for speeding and for window tint, and then also issues me a notice and order where i'm supposed to go to an RCMP detachment within 3 days and show an officer there than my front window tint has been removed.
I have a few questions:
1. is an officer allowed to remove and destroy my window tinting on the spot as he issues a ticket?
2. My car is actually a company car leased by my employer and I told the officer this and that the car was provided to me with the window tinting. He issued the ticket and notice and order to me anyway. My question is what would happen, in this case, if I didn't go to an RCMP detachment within 3 days to show them that it is removed?
3. do I have any argument in a dispute against personally receiving a window tinting ticket for driving a car that has tinting that isn't my vehicle?
can any leo's out there help clear this up for me?
thanks and happy thanksgiving
