since your asking i guess no wasta, sadly with wasta you can get it tomorrow by 11am max, but the procedure is wait for the fine to appear online and pay it "ONLINE" if you can then you just go iljabrya and ask for it back, if its blocked you need to remove the rack and go to il jabrya take a print and see whoever they point you at, 1 he says if you have the car here today to go take a pic and come show me, 2 if hes a jerk he will give you a paper to go to fa79 il fani sorry i dont know the english term but anyways its the place you renew your registration and they will check that its been removed sign you paper you head back go see the same dude signs it and unblocks it, pay and then go get it from another office on another floor.

at the end of his shift, if he didnt and you used some vitamin w then they will call him and ask him to come in depending on how big of a W you have.

legally ? you cant drive your car after the cop took your license away, but i've heard and personally driven a week with the paper but the ink on that paper will vanish in that time (test it), the longest i drove with it being taken is a year and a half, i had my license taken away and had to go to the jabrya place, after i went i didnt like his questions, is the car here ? did you come alone ? is there anyone you know close ? fuck it went home and didnt think about getting it till a year and a half later when abdulfatah came into position and was creating a bit of a chaos.

 

it depends on your nationality, sorry but its true, i say 5-7days tops and its risky.

Thank you Gargoyle for the info.  I got my DL back. Thank God it didn't hustle me. it was easy. 2 days back i checked from the online traffic department site, I found my id number with a 10 kd fine, violation was adding extra parts. so the next day i went to Jabriya muroor, gave my paper to the counter, told her my driving license was taken from me. and she asked for 10 kd, she told me to go first floor to get my DL . she gave me a paper with the info that i paid.after asking around if which office to get my DL,i  gave the paper to an officer, he told me to wait outside. it took 5 min for him to call my name. then walla! i got my DL back. it took around a week for the ticket to be in the system. thank you again guys. Cheers!

No I can't provide a link because we don't live in California :) .  But I have a big bike rack hanging off the back of my car and I have been at over 20 checkpoints with it and no one ever looked at it.  More importantly I have renewed the registration and went to inspection with the bike rack on for the past 3 or 4 years.

i have 40% tint on all my windows including the front and back,plus i got the black curtains on the rear window and side and rear passenger seats, i did on all my cars, 7 years no one ever said anything about it, doesnt mean i cant be fined for it, no one carries a fire extinguisher anymore but you can be fined, the fine is called تغير شكل جوهري للسياره, means changing anything, adding anything is illegal.

 

for example changing my exhaust to a more efficient one, a quieter one is still illegal i may still be fined if he was in a bad mood.

Just wondering, don't they check your tint % with that gadget at your annual vehicle inspection and renewal? Surely in those 7 years, at least a couple of times?

nope not once, it really depends on how you look and what you drive, but i did get the "lower the window half way, that looks like more than 30%, and your front window is tinted too" i usually say its 30% and they go "are you sure we have the device to check" i just say go ahead and he just lets me go, or i say its 40% and hes like thats illegal go remove it and come back and i reply with can i do it here now ? the answer is no go park someplace do it there some higher ranking guy usually ask how much let him pass, or if im with my dad he does it.

 

my brother has a matte blue crown vic and its tinted and had wider rims and when he went there, he went inside without his car and asked if they will renew matte or does he need to paint it and they told him its ok to renew but change the rims back to stock and remove the tinting, he headed back and when he reached his car a police officer who worked there told him they didnt let you renew ? he told him what they said and he took my brothers papers and told him to wait here 10 mins later he came back and told him thats it done. 

 

again it depends on what you drive and how you look and what you say,

i get pulled over and they ask and i say its 30 but i have curtains and hes like its a ticket i say ok and he heads to his car and asks me to remove the rear curtains and he says its for safety reasons and so incase you are parked we need to see thru you car without going around i reply with but its hot and if im parked i usually put them back and i also put the front side windows and the sun shield cause im parked in the sun and as far as i know its ok to do that as long as i take them off before getting into the car and before starting it, he shakes his head and smiles and says il let you go but take them rear one off before driving.

I've got 30% tint all the way around except the windshield, never had any issues. 30% is legal here, anything below that is illegal. 40% is lighter than 30%.

that maybe how it works abroad but not here buddy, 40% tint is blacker than 30%, in kuwait the 100% tint is pitch black or what you know and think of as 5%, what your calling 30% on your crown vic is really 70-80% in kuwait and is in violation of moi traffic laws.

HAHAHA play nice.   But yes your tints are way too dark.

As for the bike rack I actually asked a cop who drives a white and blue cruiser.  Was stuck on the right shoulder waiting for a tow truck because I will not risk being under my car on the Fahaheel Expy. to change a flat tire.  Polite cop came and waited behind me until the tow truck arrived.  We chatted a bit and I asked about the bike rack.   He said it should be okay, then he gave me his number and told me to call him if anyone hassles me about it.   So I guess that means its really up to the cop.  I'm happy I have a bit of wasta (probably forgot me already. lol )
