Windows, Mirrors, Defroster

The Vehicle Code provides specifications for the safe use of sun screening devices and tinting of windows. When cars are manufactured, they are in conformance with these specifications.


Any change in tinting or the modification or installation of sun screening devices must be done in accordance with the California Vehicle Code.


You must have mirrors which provide a view for at least 200 feet to the rear of your vehicle. Two mirrors are required on all vehicles. A left side mirror is required and either a rear view or right side mirror.


You should properly adjust your mirrors before starting to drive, to avoid being distracted while attempting to adjust them during driving.


Maintaining good visibility requires that you keep windshields and mirrors clean and free from obstructions. If your windshield is cracked and obstructs your view or that of your passenger, you will not be allowed to take your driving test. You must not carry objects, inside or outside, which obscure your view.


Over time windshield wipers lose their ability to effectively clean your windshield by cracking, loosing their flexibility, becoming dirty, and getting out of adjustment. Therefore, it is a safe practice is to change them annually.


Temperature and humidity conditions may change rapidly causing frost and condensation to quickly form on the windshield. For this reason, it is important to keep the defroster in good operating condition.
