May 13, 2009I was on the way home from work yesterday not speeding with my windows down and got pulled by a state trooper at mile marker 30 on 295 in Hanover County. The trooper rolled up to my truck and first started asking me if I had my weapon on me (guess he ran my plate and saw I have a ccw). Then he asked me if I knew the legal height for my truck. I told him yeah 30 for front bumper and 31 for rear. He swore I was above the limit, he didn''''t know my truck is a 3/4 ton. We started out measuring the front and it was right at 29 and some change, I could tell he didn''''t like that. Then went to the back and measured and I was right at 31, he didn''''t like that again. He was unsatisfied that he couldn''''t give me a ticket for height so then he started probing. He asked me if my windows were tinted I told him yes. Now mind you I had my windows down when he pulled me. I was honest and told him yes, he checked them with his meter. Front window was 18%. He wrote me a ticket for tint. Seemed like he was just looking for something to get me on. I have had my windows tinted for years and never got a ticket **or** pulled. Guess I''''ll pay the $91 ticket and keep the tint not worth taking it off to me. Does anyone on here have problems with Richmond area troopers and height?
Here is a recent pic of my truck with 2 yards of dirt in it.
