Frequently Asked Questions
We are tired of government preying on our legal ignorance to pay for its mismanagement of federal, state and local budget. We want to offer a platform for people (initially us) to provide their own way they BeatTheMan, and for others to benefit from the community. Think of it as a wikipedia to beating the man.
We believe that Chicago's exclusive tint law is an outragous revenue scheme and target's innocent citizens, not criminals. Given the Illinois State Law on tints, there is a sound legal argument against such tickets. However, every year the City of Chicago collects $2.6M against ten of thousands people. Enough is enough, and we are here to fight.
What finally triggered us to start this website is because one of our founders got such a ticket but used some legal research to defeat it. We want to provide a centralized marketplace to encourage people to do the same.
Yes, we provide good advice to you free of charge. Our goal is to spread to the masses how I got away with this tint violation.
But even with these intentions, building this site and hosting it is costing us more than we originally thought. So we would really appreciate a small donation if you just want to download our pre-packaged appeal. The donation is purely for the maintanance of our website, and for our expansion into more legal grey areas. However, we will make your donation worthwhile If your appeal does not work based on our template, we guarantee your money back.
We're not looking to make money from this site - this is really about rebellion, as I am a victim just like you.
So if you're really struggling for cash, do not worry. You can write to us and we will work something out for you. What we want is for you to get out of paying the $250, pure and simple.
Yes, we guarantee your money back if you fail to get your ticket dismissed. In fact, we want you to let us know about it. How the City of Chicago interprets the Illinois Law will change, for better or for worse, and we want to be in the know. Your request for money back is one of the ways we can improve our offering to you.
Yes, by all means. Please go to our "Community" section to contribute your request.
Since this is a two-man team at this point, we cannot guarantee that we can cover it ASAP. What will be really helpful, however, is that you can contribute some initial thoughts to get us started. We will try to live up to our mission: We do legal research so you don't have to.
Ultimately, the sharing of ideas among the community will be the best way for people to know how to get away from TheMan. We do legal research, but proven techniques and advice from others are always best. That's why I wanted to share my tint appeal with you.
Yes, by all means. I love to hear your story. We will high-five your success, but will not stop if the government does not listen to your appeal. We will fight together, and your story sharing is a start. Please go to our "Community" section to do so.
