KENNEWICK, Wash. –Uncertain
whether your car's tinted windows are breaking the law?
Kennewick police on
Saturday hope to shed some light on the confusion over tinted windows.
Police say several
businesses in the Tri-Cities are selling window tinting over the state legal
limit, and officers have been writing tickets.
On Saturday at the Southridge
Sports Complex, patrol officers will answer your questions about tinted windows
and will check whether your car is street legal.
"We have a meter
which will enable people to be able to have their windows tested to make sure
they have the legal tinting on them," says Mike Blatman, crime prevention officer.
If your car fails the
tinted window test, don't worry. Kennewick police say they want to give drivers
plenty of time to get their cars in compliance before officers start handing
Officers will test car
windows from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday.
The police department will also mark National Missing Children's Day at
the complex with information on Take 25, a program for parents on how to make
their kids safer. Children can join the My ID Club, and receive their own ID
safety card. Police SWAT equipment and fire fighting vehicles will also be at
the sports complex along with the DARE Music Machine.
