Tj Doors off question

Is it legal to drive in Oregon with no side mirrors, I can't find anything specific that says you can't.

As I am moving to Oregon in a month I have the full printed version of the 2012-2013 Oregon Driver Manual. In Section 7 under Vehicle Equipment: Rearview Mirror; it says

"The driver must be able to see at least 200ft behind the vehicle at all times, and with all loads, on a straight, level road.....If a trailer or load obstructs the rear view, then outside rearview mirrors on each side of the MV are required. These mirrors need to be extended beyond the width of the trailer or load so the driver can see 200 ft behind the vehicle."

So unless you cannot see behind you with the rearview mirror, I dont see why you would need side mirrors. Hope this helps, and sorry for the lenghtly reply.

I have been pulled over for not having a side mirror 9outside of Medford). I don't recall the wording in the ORS but you need at least on outside mirror.

I'm pretty sure I have a pair of Harley mirrors you can have for $10 if you want. I ran them for a few years.

I've been hearing from a variety of sources that you need doors on in Washington - so going doorless in OR is OK, just remember where you are if you might head up into WA.

The way the law reads in Oregon you must have doors also, but most LEO's either let it slide or don't know that.

I rolled around with no doors most of last summer up near Tacoma area.


Upon review this is the only thing I could find on doors. It does not appear illegal in WA according to this reference.
