Do you need to have a windshield on your motorcycle in Georgia?

In this video, attorney Ted Spaulding answers whether or not a windshield is required when driving a motorcycle in the state of Georgia. 

Is it against the law to not have a windshield on your motorcycle in the State of Georgia? Keep watching this video to find out the answer to this all-important question to stay legal on the roads in Georgia. Hi. Ted Spaulding, founder, trial lawyer here at Spaulding Injury Law. So the code section you’re wanting to look at is 46-315, subsection B. The answer to the question is no but there is a big exception to that no. If you don’t have a windshield, you must wear eye protection at all times. So goggles, appropriate sunglasses, got to have that at all times. You can be pulled over and ticketed if you don’t have a windshield and you’re not also wearing your eye protection. So that’s the nuance there. That was a question from my motorcycle Facebook group. Thanks for the question. So stay legal out there, guys. Windshield or eye protection, one or the other. Please follow the law.
