having your front windows tinted, if you have them down when you get pulled?

Someone told me today that they have to catch you driving with your windows up for it to be illegal, and therefore give you a ticket etc

Surely this is rubbish?

They have some little light or something they shine through the tint, if it reads too dark or w/e they can do you for it. But i think they have to let a certain % of light through to pass mot.

if they are more than 25% tinted on the front they can give you a ticket, or make you peel a it off or part of it off at the roadside, i saw it on a traffic police thing on tv a few months ago.. some bint in a bmw x5 with huge wheels and limo black windows all round got pulled over, i actually found it quite funny as she had to call her bloke to come find her and peel it off himself because she didnt want to break her nails!

ill shut up now lol
