For those looking to drive their RZRs legally on city streets and public thoroughfares, the use of a windshield is often required by law. And in many cases, not just any windshield will suffice. To pass inspection in some jurisdictions, a Polaris RZR must have a DOT windshield installed. In order to be certified by the US Department of Transportation, a Polaris RZR windshield needs to meet a few requirements. First and foremost, a DOT windshield for the Polaris RZR must be strong. Units like the DOT windshield by EMP or the Polaris RZR 900/1000/Turbo full glass windshield by UTVZILLA come with thick aluminum frames secured with stainless steel bolts and washers. This ensures that the windshield will stay in place, even in the event of a rollover or head-on collision. In addition to a thick frame, the windshield panel itself must also be able to withstand the extreme forces of an unforeseen accident. For this, DOT-approved laminated automotive glass is used. Not only does laminated safety glass resist fracturing, but it can also contain anti-glare tint for unrivaled visibility. Be it a front Polaris RZR DOT windshield or a rear Polaris RZR DOT windshield, Everything Polaris RZR has the right windshields to make any rig legally compliant.
Some states don't require the use of a DOT windshield to make an RZR street legal, while other states do. But even if it's not compulsory under the law, many riders choose to run DOT windshields on their RZR, RZR Pro, or RZR Turbo for the added safety benefits they bring. After all, if a windshield can meet the safety standards of the US Department of Transportation, you know that it has gone through rigorous testing procedures to ensure that it will protect both you and your passengers no matter what happens. So if you want a windshield to get your machine licensed or a windshield that will withstand the most punishing conditions, the Polaris RZR DOT windshields at Everything Polaris RZR are the way to go!
