Default Are Lexan windows Street Legal?

I need to replace the windshield on my car and was thinking of upgrading to Lexan. Considering they're lighter and safer than safety glass I assume I should be OK. But considering how cops are cracking down in my neighbourhood I just want to check. Anyone know for sure?

they're not, and they scratch really easily. Lexan windows should be seen as a replacable/wear-item.

go with glass.

Speedglass doesn't scratch so they would never know if it was there. Plus it comes molded Click the image to open in full size.

well I take back what I said. they probably do a mild plastic coating on it and make it scratch resistant...very cool.

I'm going to look into this...

There is lexan and there is plexi glass... one is lighter than the other and it also scratches easier. the other is very slightly heavier and is polishible.
