Do You Have To Have A Driver-Side Mirror?

I was driving around Orlando, FL today and I noticed that the car in front of me was tricked out with an annoying and loud speaker system. Since I was at a red light, I stared a little more and noticed that the driver actually removed his driver-side mirror and replaced it with another speaker. Is this legal? Are you allowed to remove side mirrors? And install speakers into the spot where the glass should be?

Figures that the car was a beater. I doubt the driver has insurance – I made sure to keep my distance.

In most, if not all states, an exterior driver side mirror IS required by law. As long as the vehicle has a rear view mirror mounted inside the vehicle, a passenger side exterior mirror is not required by law.
