Why aren't mudflaps on cars a legal requirement? They would severely cut down on the spray on a wet motorway.

What the **** do you care about legal requirements? You don't even
stick to speed limits!

Sigh. Look, you dirty, inferior sub-louse... I have, repeatedly,
ordered you to be polite to humans. Please follow.

Get some decent windscreen wipers you pikey. Honestly, welcome to the
21st century.

So your wipers magically remove the spray that's metres in front of you? Idiot.

It seems a reasonable question. There are some Spray Suppression
requirements for lorries:

They make up all sorts of stupid rules for cars but neglect the obvious. You only need to drive once on a motorway in the pouring rain to see the mess made by cars without flaps.

You neglect the obvious laws such as speeding/tailgating/drunk-driving
and you're banging on about stupid rules for mudflaps???

Hint: if you're getting sprayed by the car in front, you're too
****ing close (see under 'tailgating' above).

Forging those superior to you? But you are STILL inferior, Andrzej.

You will ALWAYS be inferior. It's genetic.
