G. S. 20-126, as the same appears in the 1965 Replacement Volume 1C of the General Statutes, is amended by deleting subsection (a) and inserting in lieu thereof the following: (a) No person shall drive a motor vehicle on the streets or highways of this State unless equipped with an inside rear view mirror of a type approved by the Commissioner, which provides the driver with a clear, undistorted, and reasonably unobstructed view of the highway to the rear of such vehicle; provided, a vehicle so constructed or loaded as to make such inside rear view mirror ineffective, may be operated if equipped with a mirror of a type to be approved by the Commissioner located so as to reflect to the driver a view of the highway to the rear of such vehicle. A violation of this subsection shall not constitute negligence per se in civil actions. Farm tractors, self-propelled implements of husbandry and construction equipment and all self-propelled vehicles not subject to registration under this chapter are exempt from the provisions of this Section. Sec. 1.2. Any inside mirror installed in any motor vehicle by its manufacturer shall be deemed to comply with the provisions of this Act.
