Hey guys, Looking to see if anyone has a link to each state's requirements as to the number of mirrors required? I'm in KY and I was curious. My mirrors are mounted on my doors, so when the doors are off, I have no side view mirrors. I do have a rearview, is that enough?

In NY you have to have a rearview and a driverside mirror. You can pick up a mirror that mounts to your door hinge cheap.

Yeah, I don't want to unless I have to. I searched online and can't find anything about the laws in Kentucky.

So basically, I have to have a side view mirror, and a rearview mirror... Thank you for the info. I appreciate it.. Now, I gotta have a chat with my deputy friends, and see how likely it is that I'll get pulled over for not having the proper mirror set up.. I really don't feel like messing with the mirrors.. Seems pointless to me.. Hell, i rarely use the sideview mirrors anyways.

If it doesn't say an "original equipment" mirror that means you can get one of those little 3M round mirrors for blind spots and put it somewhere where you can see it. Legally you have a side mirror... ;)
