<SC7> An Autonomous Win Point is awarded to any Alliance that has completed the following tasks at the end of the Autonomous Period:

[…]

d. Not violated any other rules.

<S4> Wear safety glasses. All Drive Team Members must wear safety glasses or glasses with side shields while in the Alliance Stations during Matches.

If a Drive Team Member is breaking <S4>, will this prevent their Alliance from being awarded the Autonomous Win Point?

Thank you for your question. Per the VRC Referee Guide, it is part of the referee's pre-match task list to verify that all Drive Team Members are wearing safety glasses as described in rule <S4>. A Match should not begin until all Drive Team Members are wearing safety glasses. If safety glasses are not available, the affected Drive Team Member(s) cannot be present in the Alliance Station for the Match.
