Windshields of vehicles that travel on a public highway or road are not allowed to have a sunscreen material or a sign covering them. This Florida statute 316.2952 does allow for a sun strip to be put at the top of the windshield provided it is transparent and does not interfere with the view of the driver.


Vehicles with comprehensive insurance cover, according to Statute 627.7288, may have their windshield replaced at no cost if damaged.


Florida laws require every vehicle to be well equipped with windshield wipers. These help clean the windshield of snow, debris or rain. They must be in good working condition and operated and controlled by driver.


Vehicles with three-horsepower electric powered vehicles are excluded from these requirements in Florida. Other vehicles exempted are grove chemical supply tanks, fertilizer distributors and grove equipment.
