Re: No Mud Flaps on Pickup Truck
Just because one is not told it is wrong does not mean its wrong. In CA, most tinting places will tint the front windows of a car, even if it's illegal. People leave that buisness thinking their tint is legal, even though the missed reading the sign on the wall saying it's wrong. Now, people can get their pickups lifted with big, oversized tires and a 6" lift to boot. No one tells them that they need flaps, or that their bumper may be too high, headlights are too high, frame height might be too high, etc. I understand not everyone knows the entire vehicle code inside and out. It may have taken years for you to get a ticket for it, but it's a simple fix in all reality. It is a fix it ticket right? You will probably break less peoples windshields after you get flaps. Yes, you have probably broken some windshields in your miles you have driven.
