I believe they do. The American ones even put it on the dash in case you miss it on the visor. LOL.

They are required by law.

However, lots of people remove them with various methods, or cover them with gag stickers.

A common mod is to replace the visors entirely with ones from overseas that lack the warnings.

Along with the aspherical wide-angle side mirrors, which lack the "Objects are closer..." warning on the passenger side.

Heck, they put those awful stickers all over the interior of our $70M Gulfstream G650ER jet. On the tables, on the seats, on the side panels, on the doors, and so on. Not worth the $10,000 fine to remove one!


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

My 84 Civic wagon does not have any warning stickers. I should carry a Shop Vac so that in the case of an accident the paramedics can remove me for transport.

All that safety stuff including the stickers is good for you.

Luxury or not, they all have to pass the same regulations. To expect otherwise is to imply special treatment because of one's wealth. If a poor shlob like me has to look at these ugly sticker in my cheap econobox, so should the millionaire in their hyper luxury mobile.

I'm usually looking out the windshield... so I don't notice them.

I was going to say the same thing. The cost of the vehicle has noting to do with federal mandates.

I do have to say I have no idea what they look like now. I don't think I have ever had the visors down on the Scion, and off hand not sure what they look like on my truck, or if there is even one on the drivers side visor of it.
AS said above, I am looking out the window, not at the visor.

On hard plastic visors, I have removed them with 91% Isopropyl alcohol. Never heard of a fine.

I don't buy cars new enough to have those warning labels still intact. They often fade after some years
