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

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

https://www.gov.uk/government/public...t-a-pass#spray

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).


Well, yes.

Have you ever driven more than three feet behind the car in front on a
motorway?

You can label me what you like. I LOVE it.
And I can carry on labelling Phucker an idiotic arse despite your
interference.
Don't you think Phucker is an idiotic arse?
