I wish I knew about Michigan law...but from experience here in CA. I can drive with my windshield down on my Jeep AS LONG as I have goggles (or sunglasses) on my face. HOWEVER, the lenses cannot be tinted (much like the window tint laws).

Apparently there's a law against using the Search Function. This was just covered recently, also.
