    i knew it was the cops descression if he wanted to give me a ticket for the tint... but i didnt think i wouldnt pass inspection on it. bc you can see my brake lights and signal lights just fine when i use them. oh well. the guy wants to be a dick.

    No, the guy is covering his own ass. He has regulations to follow. If something happens down the road and the cause is found to be your tails that were not within state regulations and he was the last to have passed it on inspection, he is at fault and can incur fines or face jail time. Not every mechanic is a money grubbing hack that wants to scam you on bullshit repairs. You should feel lucky to have found a shop that is more worried about your safety rather than making the money and slapping a sticker on. "lick it and stick it" shops are dangerous to you, me and everyone on the road.
