Not sure in your state but if it was I think its illegal cause when u get in an accident they can't open your doors.

But I ask what if the doors are locked on a regular car.

Yea I don't mind if they bust my window if I have shaved door handles. As long as I live then the truck can be repaired.

I dont see how they could be illegal, in a emergency all they would have to do is break a window to get into the truck, that would be like you having your doors locked and get into a accident, they would have to do the same thing...

Exacly what I was sayin. Thats just what I heard but I think it may have applied at the dragstrip.

the only place i know that shaved handles are illegal is at the dragstrip, but i was stationed in VA for 4 years and they do have some stupid laws. So best bet is to call.
