Question: I got a DUI in North Hollywood, but I was pulled over for tinted windows. Can I be pulled over for that?

Answer: It is possible for tinted windows to give the officer probable cause to pull you over. There may be some holes in their evidence…for starters, from what you stated, there is no poor driving since you were pulled over only for tinted windows. If that is the case, it’s beneficial to your defense. Also, although you can be charged with a DUI even if you are under a .08 BAC, it increases the chances of getting your DUI charge dismissed if that is the case. Sounds like this is a case worth fighting. I regularly handle matters in North Hollywood. Call me if you would like to discuss further.

Whatever you decide to do, best of luck.
