Can you roll down your back windshield, too?
Not all cops have the light testers with them either, which could be a reason people haven't been hassled.
I know some shops have you sign a waiver if you get your windows tinted darker than legal limit. I just got my car inspected, and tint was one of the things on the sheet. Whether they actually test for it or not, I don't know. If you have any friends that work at inspection garages, give them a call. It can't hurt to stop by one and ask the guy doing inspection stickers if he will check for tint, or if you leave a case of beer in the backseat if he'll let it slide. When is your registration due up? If it'* soon, get it inspected then bring it ot the tint shop, nothing to worry about for 12 months.
Basically if you can get it to pass inspection and are willing to take the chance on a ticket or the cop making you rip it up, go for it. If not, you're SOL.
