(3) Each offense described in this section is a Class B traffic violation.

(4) A court may dismiss a citation issued for violation of subsection (2) of this section, or reduce the fine that the court would otherwise have imposed for the offense, if the defendant establishes to the satisfaction of the court that after the citation for the offense was issued the windows of the vehicle were modified to comply with the requirements of ORS 815.221 (Tinting).

(c) Any other evidence produced by the defendant to show modification or removal of the nonconforming window tinting. [1995 c.263 §3; 2013 c.216 §1]
