Windows tint law says that if you want to tint, you need both mirrors.
Virginia Window Tint Law
C. Except as provided in 46.2-1053, but notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section, no sun-shading or tinting film may be applied or affixed to any window of a motor vehicle unless such motor vehicle is equipped with a mirror on each side of such motor vehicle, so located as to reflect to the driver of the vehicle a view of the highway for at least 200 feet to the rear of such vehicle, and the sun-shading or tinting film is applied or affixed in accordance with the following....
Court case about broken side mirror. Must have login to access full article from this site, free registration (August 2007):
Virginia, August, 2007, State Case law | LexisOne
Further, the trial court held that, as appellee had a working driver's side and a working rearview mirror, he was not required to have a working passenger side mirror.
based on the court case, you don't need a passenger mirror in VA if you have center and rearview.

If that is the actual vehicle code for Florida, it stands that we could get away with sideview cameras as long as we have a functional rear view mirror meeting said requirements ..
