WV Mirror code

here's the code for Mirrors

§17C-15-35. Mirrors.

Every motor vehicle which is so constructed or loaded as to obstruct the driver's view to the rear thereof from the driver's position shall be equipped with a mirror so located as to reflect to the driver a view of the highway for a distance of at least two hundred feet to the rear of such vehicle.

i read it as if I have A MIRROR that I can see rearward 200ft im good.

therefore my W/S mounted mirror lets me see the required 200ft to the rear..

(unless hypothetically I was say.... hauling a fridge or washing machine in my jeep, in which case my view would be obstructed )

then I would need another mirror to give me the 200ft view to the rear.

I havent had any trouble around home, but have run into some issues in the Va, Md, and DC. Havent gotten a ticket though. I got the kit to mount the mirrors to the cab, removed the ones off the doors and filled and painted them. Now, full doors, half doors, or no doors, no problem. Takes less room to store the doors with no mirrors also.

it means if your windshield mounted rearview mirror is obstructed or you otherwise can't see out of it, you need a side mirror somewhere that you can see out of.

From what I read, bumpers must not be over 31"s off of the ground. It also states that if the bumper is removed then the frame cannot be greater than 31"s off the ground. Other than that, which applies to lifts more than bumpers, you should be good to go.

I have a copy of the modified inspection state trooper laws. The bumpers must come out to at least mid way of tires. No shorties. Beside the not more than 31" from ground to bottom of bumper. If not lifted there's no real check other than normal. Most don't know if not lifted.

I run without doors all summer. You only need rear view mirror in the state but federal law requires you to have at least one on drivers side. That's what a state trooper told me. I have a second set of mirrors with relocation brackets for summer. When it rains I put soft doors on and don't have to fuss with mirrors.
