    However, as far as I know, it's not mandatory to have the visor of your full face helmet closed.

    At least some states I've ridden in, if you have the visor open, and do not have other eye protection, you can be cited for lack of eye protection.

    I've gotten pulled over for that.

    I had sunglasses on under my visor and the office behind me only saw that the visor was up. He just checked my paperwork and let me go.
