Car Rear Window Stickers Legal

It is unlawful to have any substance other than a rear-view mirror or required decals attached to the windshield at any point more than 4 1/2 inches above the bottom of the windshield, if it obstructs the operator’s view.

A person may not place on or attach to the windshield or side or rear window an object or material that obstructs or reduces the driver’s clear view.

To be sure that your windscreen stickers don’t leave you paying a fine while you’re out and about, make sure they are installed away from the area directly in front of the driver’s seat. Anything deemed to block the driver’s line of vision will lead to penalties and MOT failure.

Stickers required to be displayed by the state are allowed to be displayed in the 6-inch square portion of the lower corner of the windshield farthest removed from the driver.

No person shall drive upon the highways of this state with any sign, poster, or other non-transparent material upon the front windshield, or side or rear window of the vehicle other than a certificate or other paper required to be displayed by law.

No portion of an inspection sticker on a motor vehicle windshield may be more than 4 inches from the bottom edge of the windshield.

Windshield stickers that are greater than 51.2 mm in diameter in the area swept by the windshield wipers are not permitted.

A person shall not paste, stick, or paint advertising matter or other things on, over, or hung behind any transparent part of a motor vehicle windshield, vent windows, or side windows located immediately to the left and right of the driver, except in a space not over 4 inches high and 12 inches long in the lower right-hand corner of the windshield, or in such space as the DMV may specify for location of any government sticker. Exempts electronic toll collection transponders.

A driver may not drive on a highway if a windshield sticker obstructs the driver’s view.

The only stickers that can be placed on a windshield are transparent stickers or stickers required to be placed on the windshield by law, or authorized by the Director of Emergency Management or the Commissioner of Public Safety.

Windshield stickers are permitted to be displayed if they are an inspection sticker, or an officially required sticker.

Signs, posters, or other non-transparent materials may not be placed on any window that substantially obstructs, obscures, or impairs the Driver’s clear view of the roadway.

No person may drive a vehicle with any sign, poster, or other nontransparent material on the front windshield, side wings, or side or rear windows that obstruct the driver’s clear view of the road.

A person may not operate a motor vehicle with any sign, poster, or other non-transparent material on the windshield except a certificate or other paper required to be displayed by law or the vehicle’s identification number displayed or etched.

No person may operate, on a highway, any motor vehicle with a sticker, sign, poster, or other non-transparent material placed over, or affixed to the windshield or a side or a rear window that unduly obstructs the driver’s view of the highway or an intersecting highway.

Windshield stickers are permissible as long as they do not impair the safe operation of the motor vehicle.

No sign, poster, or other non-transparent material may be placed on the front windshield, other than a certificate or other paper required to be so displayed by law, or in compliance with security measures required by a federal or state government agency and approved by the MVA.

No person shall operate, on a highway, any motor vehicle with a sticker, sign, poster or other non-transparent material placed over, or affixed to the windshield or a side or a rear window that unduly obstructs his or her view of the highway or an intersecting highway.

Stickers are not allowed on any windshield, except for inspection and county tax decals.

These can include various permits, including disability badges and parking permits, as well as vehicle licenses and manufacturer’s stickers. Official anti-theft stickers are also included – these are typically placed in the lower left or right of the windscreen, and are provided to drivers by a local authority.

Objects such as advertisements, cards, pasquinades, decalcomania, signs, or other non-transparent material must not exceed a square of 7 inches by 7 inches, and must be placed on the lower corner farthest from the driver’s seat, or on the lateral windows behind the driver so as not to obstruct visibility.

Nontransparent materials may be used when: along the top edge of the windshield area not to exceed 3 inches to the right or left of the center of the windshield if the materials do not extend downward more than 4 inches from the top edge of the windshield; in the lower left-hand corner of the windshield provided they do not extend more than 3 inches to the right of the left edge or more than 4 inches above the bottom edge of the windshield; in the lower left-hand corner of the rear window provided they do not extend more than 3 inches to the right of the left edge or more than 4 inches above the bottom edge of the window.

Signs, posters, or other non-transparent materials may not be placed on any window unless authorized by the District.

No person shall drive any vehicle with a sign, poster, sticker, or other non-transparent material upon or adjacent to the front windshield, sidewings, or side or rear windows of such vehicle which shall obstruct the driver’s clear view of the road, unless such material is required by law. Stickers or other nontransparent material are allowed on a rear window if the vehicle has exterior rearview mirrors on both sides and the stickers are along the perimeter without obstructing the center of the window.

For rear windscreens, zones do not apply. However, guidelines state the rear window, as with the front windscreen, must be kept clear from obstruction. The driver should be able to see clearly through the back window. Large window stickers, especially opaque windscreen stickers, can easily disrupt this view.

For windscreen stickers that are not simply decorative, similar caution must be taken when choosing where to place them. Official stickers are used to convey important information either about the vehicle itself or the driver.

No person shall drive any motor vehicle with any sign, poster, or other non-transparent material upon the front windshield, sidewings, or side or rear windows of such vehicle which materially obstructs, obscures, or impairs the Driver’s clear view of the highway or any intersecting highway.

Inspection sticker may be in left hand corner or in center of windshield behind rear view mirror.

As the highway code states, a driver’s windscreen must be kept clear from obstructions that interfere with vision. This is the same rule for sat navs and window mounts as it is for windscreen stickers.

No person is permitted to drive any motor vehicle with any sign, poster, or other non-transparent material upon or in the front windshield, windows to the immediate right and left of the driver, or in the rearmost window if the latter is used for driving visibility.

A person may not drive a motor vehicle with a sign, poster, substance, or other non-transparent material upon the front windshield, sidewings, or side or rear windows of the vehicle that materially obstructs, obscures, or impairs the driver’s clear view of the highway or an intersecting highway.

No person shall drive any motor vehicle with any sign, poster, sticker, or other non-transparent material upon the front windshield, wings, deflectors, side shields, corner lights adjoining the windshield, or front side windows other than a certificate or other article required to be so displayed by statute or regulations.

Windshields and other windows of a motor vehicle must be free of any material that might reduce visibility from inside or outside the vehicle.

If you’re planning on attaching stickers to your windscreen  – or already have stickers in place – the first thing to know is that, while there is no official law surrounding them, you do have to abide by windscreen obstruction regulations.

Stickers are permitted, but cannot interfere with visibility.

No person may drive a vehicle on a highway if the view through the windshield or windows is so obscured by mud, frost, steam, or any other thing as to make the driving of the vehicle hazardous or dangerous.

For cars with windscreen stickers attached to the front and/or back windows, there are some pointers that you’ll need to keep in mind, both when you’re on the road and taking your car in for an MOT. In this article, we’re looking at windscreen stickers and the law regarding them here in the UK.

No person may operate motor vehicle with sign, poster, or other non-transparent material that obstructs visibility.

Windshield stickers are prohibited, except that there may be in the lower left-hand or right-hand corner of the windshield a sign, poster, or decal not to exceed 4 inches in height by 6 inches in width.

The same obstruction rule should be remembered for official stickers; they must not seriously obstruct the driver’s line of sight. Again, this goes for the rear window as it does for the front windscreen.

These are prohibited unless official and cannot obstruct vision.

No person may drive any motor vehicle with any sign, poster, or other non-transparent material upon the front windshield, side windows, or rear windows of such vehicle which obstructs the Driver’s clear view of the highway or any intersecting highway.

Signs, stickers, or other materials may be displayed in a 7-inch square location in the lower corner of the windshield farthest removed from the driver, or in a 5-inch square location in the lower corner of the windshield nearest the driver.

No more than 1 sticker, except for an inspection sticker, for parking or entry identification may be placed on the windshield of a motor vehicle.

It is unlawful to place any material on a windshield if the material, sign, poster, or adhesive film prohibits or impairs the ability to see into or out of the vehicle.  Material is allowed on windows behind the driver.

Except as otherwise specified, it is not permissible to operate a motor vehicle on the highway with a non-transparent material on the front windshield, side wings, or side or rear windows, or having on the exterior or interior an ornament that obstructs or is liable to obstruct the driver’s clear view of the highway.

Stickers may be affixed to the top most portion of the windshield if the bottom edge of the material extends no more than 4 inches from the top of the windshield down, the material is not red or amber in color, the material does not reflect sunlight or headlight glare into the eyes of any other drivers and the material is not metallic or mirrored in appearance.

Windscreen law in the UK can be a source of confusion for many drivers. Sometimes it’s difficult to know exactly what rules apply and when.

A person must not drive a motor vehicle with any sign, poster, or other non-transparent material on the front windshield which obstructs the driver’s clear view of the highway.

Signs, posters, or other non-transparent materials that could obstruct the Driver’s view are illegal.

Stickers allowed: an identification sticker on the upper most centre portion of a windshield no greater than 3 inches high and 6 inches wide, and a semi-transparent metric/miles per hour conversion indicator on the lower edge and centred in line with the vehicle’s steering column, no greater than 2 inches high and 7 inches wide.

No sign, poster, or other non-transparent material that obstructs the driver’s clear view of the road is permitted on the front windshield, side wings, or side or rear windows of the vehicle. The administrator of the Division may permit and specify placement of special stickers on the windshield or any other windows of the vehicle.

No person may drive a motor vehicle on a highway with any sign, poster or other non-transparent material or object placed on the windshield or on any window of the vehicle in a manner that will obstruct the driver’s view of the highway or any intersecting highway.

No person shall drive a motor vehicle with any sign, poster, win

Stickers can be placed on the windshield if the stickers are 4 square inches or less and placed on the bottom of the passenger’s side of the windshield.

Signs or stickers displayed in a 7-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield farthest removed from the driver, or signs or stickers displayed in a 5-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield nearest the driver are permissible.

Stickers are permitted if stickers are a maximum 7-inch square, placed in the lower left corner of the windshield farthest removed from the driver, or a maximum 5-inch square placed in the lower corner of the windshield nearest the driver.

No sticker, other than a certificate or other sticker issued by order of a government agency, may be placed on the front windshield of any motor vehicle. Permitted stickers may not cover more than 15 square inches of glass surface and must be placed in the lower left-hand corner of the windshield. Exempts a monitoring and feedback device mounted to the front windshield.

As with windscreen damage, windscreen obstruction is measured by zones – A and B. Zone A refers to the area directly in front of the driver; this area cannot contain any obstructions that measure over 10mm in diameter. Zone B refers to the rest of the windscreen. Here, windscreen stickers and other obstructions – including damage from chips and cracks – must not measure more than 40mm.
