VA fender laws?
Wanting to get rid of my light gray fenders and get tube fenders for bigger tires without a bigger lift. Though I need to check the laws on how to go about that.
Didn't find any posts about the laws in Virginia on fenders so... I didn't find any info on the front fenders just yet but I found this on the rear fenders.
§ 46.2-1083. Rear fenders, flaps, or guards required for certain motor vehicles.
No person shall operate on a highway any motor vehicle or combination of vehicles having a licensed gross weight in excess of 40,000 pounds unless the motor vehicle or combination of vehicles is equipped with rear fenders, flaps, or guards of sufficient size to substantially prevent the projection of rocks, dirt, water, or other substances to the rear. Vehicles used exclusively for hauling logs and tractor trucks shall be exempt from the provisions of this section.
(Code 1950, § 46-294.1; 1954, c. 403; 1958, c. 541, § 46.1-290; 1960, c. 120; 1981, c. 304; 1989, c. 727.)
According to this, any vehicle that weights less than... 40,000 pounds... which is all passenger vehicles, I am not required to have rear fenders.
