Hopefully this site will help you out when searching various Texas laws: http://www.fastlaws.com/index.php?id=txtn
You will find windshield and windows laws at § 547.613. Restrictions on Windows

It states in part:
Quote:
Sec. 547.613. Restrictions on Windows.
(a) Except as provided by Subsection (b), a person commits an offense that is a misdemeanor:
(1) if the person operates a motor vehicle that has an object or material that is placed on or attached to the windshield or side or rear window and that obstructs or reduces the operator's clear view; or
(2) if a person, including an installer or manufacturer, places on or attaches to the windshield or side or rear window of a motor vehicle a transparent material that alters the color or reduces the light transmission.
(b) This section does not apply to:
(1) a windshield that has a sunscreening device that:
(A) in combination with the windshield has a light transmission of 25 percent or more;
(B) in combination with the windshield has a luminous reflectance of 25 percent or less;
(C) is not red, blue, or amber; and
(D) does not extend downward beyond the AS-1 line or more than five inches from the top of the windshield, whichever is closer to the top of the windshield;
So, regarding your concern about stickers on the windshield, it could be interpreted that any stickers on any window would be in violation as it does state "and that obstructs or reduces the operator's clear view." It would come down to the officer's discretion and the violator's attitude. If you were ever cited for this, you would have to prove that your vision was not obstructed.

I've seen some states that use the tint AS-1 line to make any decals illegal below that point.

That is the intended design of the amber/yellow less glare in fog and it does make a massive difference I have my outside pair of Hella 700s covered in yellow film works great in heavy falling snow too

Hella Optilux H7 in yellow I've run the optilux in my Golf (not yellow) and they are damn good bulbs.

It will save you trouble if you succeed though.

Illinois limits how many forward facing lights you can have on at once (4), how high off the ground they can be (12" to bulb), and what color they can be (white/yellow only). In Illinois there is no difference in the law between fog, driving and headlamps so you can legally drive with all yellow lighting on. If your state allows yellow forward facing lamps for poor visibility conditions you should be able to drive with yellow bulbs at any point by simply claiming the factory white was too glaring for your eyes. But as has been said look forward to a hunting expedition for other things that may not be legal.

This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient, but I do love Fig Newton

so does TN or NC, iirc some people got tickets (or warnings, not sure which) at the Dragon last year for to many lights; they were running with fogs, driving lights, etc on during the Midnight run I think

Mine ran $49 each they had them mispriced from $89 at one pep boys so I bought 2 then took the receipt to another and they honored the price for the second pair. That's when I realized my ebay bar wouldn't hold all 4 and had to make a new bar.
