Your not reading the whole thing. That subsection refers to window tinting. When there is a lack of visibility less than 25% I believe, you must also have side mirrors. This code is also based on Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. They can be overwritten by Texas Traffic Code.

Read section "(f) Sunscreening, reflective, and privacy window devices." completely.

TTC:

547.613 also states the above when applied to situations of window screening

The code that applies to our Jeeps is 547.602.

"MIRRORS REQUIRED. A motor vehicle, including
a motor vehicle used to tow another vehicle, shall be equipped with A mirror located to reflect to the operator a view of the highway
for a distance of at least 200 feet from the rear of the vehicle."

Very good Stouttrout. Sure enough I didn't read it well enough. It's right there in Title 37, Part 1, Chapter 21, Rule 21.1, sub-section (f), sub-part (1), line (D). How could I have missed it?

ok here it is and this is from my police buddy. Two mirrors are required 1 center rearview and 1 driverside. most police will not bother you as long as you have 1 center mirror. BUT they can be an ass if they want on the driver side mirror. Passinger side mirrors stated in the late 70's as "Standard Equipment Package" and never required.



It's like in Texas you need to have operational windshield wiper, even a hand cranck wiper is still allowed, BUT you DO NOT have to have a front windshield. Suspect
