Lacey a little mud on the tail lights and head lights is sort of a status symbol in some places....Like a few places I have lived. I'm pleading the fifth on how my old pick used to look... Wet weather and muddy roads ya know.

You just ain't cool in some places if your truck isn't covered in mud.

I'm in the northeast, and alotta the southern transplant kids I saw always tried to get their trucks as dirty as possible, and they were proud of it. I still see like one or two peoples' trucks like that in the commuter lot at school when I get there, and someone always writes "please wash me" into the grime. lol No, not me.

Only really saw it in the country or say up in the mountains during mud season and then it was the entire vehicle covered. Had to constantly wash it to keep it even half-way clean.

Though in honor of your peeve of the day will tell you about one of the attorneys I worked for who had a client on work release have it revoked in reality all because of 'mud'. His GF had picked him up from work to return him to his current place of residence lol and her entire car was so muddy she could barely even see out the windshield. Knowing it wasn't safe, he told her to pull into a carwash on the way back and he'd wash it for her.

Well . . . there happened to be a sheriff's deputy there and instead of understanding the circumstances (which in itself can be illegal) he turned the guy in and a complaint was filed to revoke his work release I was so dang mad that I told my boss I wanted to write the Motion for Reconsideration - so I did and he looked at it, looked up at me, chuckled, added the legal cite for the final draft, signed it and we won

Can't say a muddy car bothers me. I always assume they've been out in the wilderness.

Jacked up 4x4 trucks are very popular out here in Funky Town. LoL!!! It's almost like a red badge of courage to drive around sportin' the mud. Let's everyone know you probably tore up a part of your rich Daddy's field over the weekend!!!
