yes it is illegal.

Before the seatbelt law was a pull overable offense. A horseback riding cop rode over to my dad and i in his work truck in downtown denver.

The cop said "Probable cause to pull you over, that cracked windshield. Heres your ticket for no seatbelt. have a good day."

We had just gotten in the truck and pulled onto the road. Needless to say my dad was pissed. I just started laughing, that of corse made him even mader :)


And it was a very small crack in the windshield.

You dont need a windshield, but have to have gogles at that point. Just like riding a motor cycle.

I drove a buddies rolled eclips back from Canyon city once with no windshield. I was wearing sun glasses. Got pulled over. Cop looked everything over asked why i didnt have a windshield and then let me go, stating "i hope those are impact resistent glasses."

It's only illegal if it is in the line of sight of the driver. There was a gig about this on KBPI Monday morning with Molly Janson (i think her name is)
