Motorists on the Oklahoma roadways know they are required to follow many different traffic laws to keep themselves and others safe on the roadways. In addition to the rules of the road, drivers are also required to make sure that their vehicles are compliance with the regulations concerning the equipment on the vehicle. Below are the windshield laws that drivers in Oklahoma are required to follow.

Windshield requirements

Oklahoma has the following requirements for windshields and associated devices:

  • All vehicles operated on the roadways must have a windshield.

  • All vehicles operated on the roadways must have electric windshield wipers that are under the control of the driver, capable of removing rain and other types of moisture to provide a clear view and in good working condition.

  • Safety glazing material is required for the windshield and all windows in the vehicle. Safety glazing material, or safety glass, is manufactured with a combination of glass and other materials that drastically lessen the potential for shattering or flying glass when struck when compared with plate glass.

Obstructions

Oklahoma has rules against obstructions of the driver’s view through the windshield as well.

  • Posters, signs, debris and any other nontransparent material is not permitted in or on the windshield, side windows or rear window that obstructs the driver’s clear view of the roadway and intersecting roadways.

  • Vehicles driven on the roadways must be free of ice, snow and frost on the windshield and windows.

  • Suspended items, such as those hanging from the rearview mirror, are not permitted if they obscure or impair the driver’s ability to see the roadway and intersecting roadways clearly.

Window tint

Oklahoma allows window tint that is in compliance with the following:

  • Non-reflective tint that is above the AS-1 line from the manufacturer or that extends no lower than five inches from the top of the windshield, whichever comes first, is permitted.

  • Any window tint on all other windows must allow a light transmittance greater than 25%.

  • Any reflective tint used on the side or rear window must be 25% reflective or less.

  • Any vehicle with a tinted rear window must have dual side mirrors.

Cracks and chips

Oklahoma has specific regulations concerning cracks and chips in the windshield:

  • Windshields with shot damage or star breaks that are greater than three inches in diameter are not permitted.

  • It is illegal to drive a vehicle on the roadways if the windshield has two or more hairline or stress cracks that equal 12 inches or more when combined if they are located in the windshield wiper swipe area on the driver’s side.

  • Areas of damage or outright breaks that are severely cracked, allow air to pass through or can be felt with a fingertip are not permitted on any portion of the windshield.

Violations

Drivers who fail to comply with the above laws can face a fine of $162 or $132 if the issue is corrected and they provide proof to the courts.

If your windshield needs to be inspected or your wipers are not working properly, a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, can help you get back on the road safely and quickly so you are driving within the laws.
