I was cited for illegal tint under the normal California section in December. I removed the tint, paid the fine, and reapplied the tint. Today I was returning from a vacation and a friend was driving the trip home. He was pulled over for the tint on my car, and the officer gave me, the passenger, a ticket for the tint on car under vechicle code 24002(b) (unsafe vechicle due to tint on the front side windows).
I am wondering if this is normal procedure, as if I was not in the car who would have received the ticket?
I know what I did was wrong, and will pay the fines associated with it. But I am trying to research if there is any room for appeal.
