Not dark at all...nothing like a limousine, but they were referring to how far down my windshield visit tint goes
Past the ASV line... I could see if it was a Florida vehicle,but the car is registered in CA and therefore subject to THEIR regulations,not Florida's...

I've never had an issue with the cops in Pensacola proper but did get harassed by the Gulf Breeze cops back in the 90s for driving while presumed poor. (Was at a point in our lives when we'd rather pay down the student loans and save for a down payment on a house than replace the Dodge Neon that dared to pass through the GB part of US 98)

Gulf Breeze wishes it could be a bit of a fortress and only views the peasants who pass through it every day as a source of revenue from moving violations. (And while it's a nice enough middle class to UMC area, it's not really all what its residents think it is)

Interesting. I always heard it was a “redneck riveria” but never took that as a bad term , more like homage to blue collar values. Never been there but I moving to SW Florida soon and would be willing to check out the beaches statying at good hotel i.e Marriott

Avoid Escambia County! Redneck Riviera is a new term to me...I find it super funny.

I actually like Pensacola proper- lovely old downtown with unique shops and restaurants and cheap minor league baseball and ice hockey games for fun, and some other cool historic districts. Also like Gulf Islands National Seashore for its unspoiled beautiful beaches and the chance to wander around historic military batteries and forts.

But the local political scene is squirrely as heck and that sometimes some oddness in law enforcemnt follows.
