    >>How is it legal for ESCO AL and ESCO FL and local town popo to run around with illegal tint?

    At least in Florida, LEO vehicles are exempted by statute.

    How is it legal for ESCO AL and ESCO FL and local town popo to run around with illegal tint? And then try to stop and give a citation to a citizen for the same thing?

    Guess I should go with that 50% tint instead of 70%. Save me some money, anyway.
