Illustration for article titled PSA: please be considerate

Please consider installing mudflaps on your ride, particularly in the PNW where they dump rocks on the road rather than use salt. We were cruising down I-5 last week enjoying the drive when a vehicle in front of me threw a rock. Bang. Broken windshield. I had a $250 deductible, and I also had to take the car to the dealer to re-calibrate the sensors that are part of the windshield (rain sensors, etc). Completely avoidable if people throw on a set of mudflaps; I put a set of OEM’s ($75) on my Taco, took half an hour. No worries about chipping the paint on the truck, and more importantly I won’t inconvenience others. Do the right thing, snowflake.
