Police cars aren't above the law... A friend of mine failed the inspection on a Chesterfield, NH cruiser for non-functional fog lights.

it was an 05...I'd assume it was an SS cause the tailights were different than the others (this was july 2005, so it could not be an 06 model)

its part of their duty gear. transporting criminals is not a good thing, and they dont want the media, or even other people seeing who is in the vehicle.

I use the bluetooth for my phone so Im god on that

But I have 30% tint and I was told legal for NY is 70%

How about cops that dont signal! That ALWAYS pisses me off

Or how about when your doign speed limit and a cop puts his lights on just to get by and then truns them off.
