   (a) On and after the effective date of this Code no person shall sell
   any new motor vehicle as specified herein, nor shall any new motor
   vehicle as specified herein be registered thereafter unless such
   vehicle is equipped with safety glazing material of a type approved by
   the Commissioner wherever glazing material is used in doors, windows
   and windshields. The foregoing provisions shall apply to all
   passenger-type motor vehicles, including passenger buses and school
   buses, but in respect to trucks, including truck tractors, the
   requirements as to safety glazing material shall apply to all glazing
   material used in doors, windows and windshields in the drivers'
   compartments of such vehicles.
   
   (b) The term "safety glazing materials" means glazing materials so
   constructed, treated or combined with other materials as to reduce
   substantially, in comparison with ordinary sheet glass or plate glass,
   the likelihood of injury to persons by objects from exterior sources
   or by these safety glazing materials when they may be cracked or
   broken.
   
   (c) Any person or firm who shall sell, or make replacements of glass
   therein, or sell glass cut to size to fit windshields, door glass, or
   window glass of a motor vehicle in violation of the provisions of this
   act shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
