The Edmonton Journal shared this little story on their online edition:
officers doing photo radar. They looked miserable, and rightly so because it was the Friday before Christmas, so I decided to spread some holiday cheer as I had a plate of homemade cookies.
I pulled onto the street the officers were pulling people over to when I was flagged over by an officer. I rolled down my window and said, “I wasn’t pulled over for speeding, I just wanted to give you and your fellow officers some cookies,” to which the con-stable replied, “Licence and registration please.”
I said, “Wait! I just wanted to give you some cookies!” That was when I was told, “I heard you. I’m giving you a (window) tint ticket.”
Yup, I pull over trying to do a good deed and one of Edmonton’s finest “Scrooges” me with a $115 window-tint ticket. Thank you, Edmonton Police Service. When you wonder why you have such a bad rep, this proves it’s warranted.

Even more reason to follow your local tint laws carefully! Police and law enforcement may not be in the mood these days.
