Removing yellow road paint?

I drove up behind the state crew painting the yellow lines and you guessed it, I now have yellow dots on my fenders on the drivers side. Tell me how you clean this stuff off. By the way I have a Sahara with painted fenders.

Probably going to have to use acetone. Wipe it on small area then wipe it off with a dry rag

Before i went with acetone (extreme measures!). I would try a polishing compound / cleaner paste. If that didn't work, i would then move to a clay bar. If the dots are small, either of those should do the trick. acetone will mar your paint.

I picked up some paint or glue last year on a Miata. I tried various things that did not work. Finally settled on spending most of a Sunday using my fingernail to pop/scrap each spot off then did a good wax. Very time consuming but no paint scratch.
