|Rob1980||Again, nobody cares about some administrative broccoli act... Has nothing to do with riding down the road legally. (Get your inspection and take your doors of and enjoy) cheers!|

Criminal law v. Administrative Law
The criminal/traffic code in MO only requires ONE mirror.
The Motor Vehicle Inspection Act, an administrative statute, requires side mirrors if so equipped by the the original manufacturer. There is no criminal sanction for violating this statute. The inspector will just not pass your vehicle.
And yes, lawyers do know the law and how to interpret it. Especially those of us who were prosecutors for 8 yrs. I ride w/o side mirrors but put my doors/mirrors on when I have the jeep inspected.

Lol thank you sir. I knew a cop would step in at some point!!!
But now i have moved to florida and i have to have a side mirror as well

To put this topic to bed, in Missouri....regardless of year, you must have (mirror providing view of rear). Now for those dense types, that means of the 3 you should have, you only legally need one.
I am a county police officer, also a jeeper. So maybe the next time a cop drives by your illegal rig. News flash, he prolly doesn't give a crap!

|geisler.robert||i was wondering about this myself|

|Jsta||Most cops have no idea what the laws are. Police Acadamey is kinda like community college, they teach you just enough to get by on. I've seen a cop argue with a woman for over an hour ( not knowing she was a lawyer ) and clearly showed he had no idea what the laws for his juristiction are.|

|TBrownSTL||They won't pull u over for it. They might say something if lulled over for something else. Unless the cop is being a dick that day then he might.|

— If your vehicle was made after 1967, it must have an inside
and an outside rearview mirror.
From Department of Revanue http://dor.mo.gov/forms/Driver_Guide_Chapter14.pdf
does not specify what side it must be on, but does require one outside mirror.

It depends on the cop rly. How I understand / have been told by multiple people, you are only required to have a driver side mirror. Some early 90's vehicles were only made with 1 mirror (driver side). I dont think the "rearview" on the windshield counts as the 1 required mirror. My salesman even warned me that it was against the law in MO to drive w/o mirrors.
But i see it kinda like the bumper height law, they wont bother you about it, unless its that time of the month...
all Missouri statutes are posted online, I'll have to check it out to be sure.

Do you need side mirrors in Missouri?
I'm taking the doors off and trying to decide if I need to get new mirrors or relocate the factory one's. I know some states require it by law. Does Missouri?
