If it was down on the bottom, where it only has the hood behind it, it would have been OK. If it's above that, yes, it needs replaced, if it's in the driver's line of sight. What side doesn't matter.

Never heard of the GPS. It's not supposed to be blocking the driver's line of sight, nothing is, so it should have been OK if mounted where the hood is the only thing behind it.

Too bad they don't stop cars that have so much crap stacked in them they can't even see the passenger mirror, let alone the door, or the back window.

Georgia is bad about that during watermelon season. Ever seen a car with the truck strapped shut over a load of watermelons, the back seat, and the passenger seat stacked to the roof? If ever there was a safety issue, that would certainly be one, running 80MPH sitting on the spring stoppers. If a truck was overloaded like that, it'd probably weigh 150,000.

Gps issue is pure bs. Hood on the freightliners drop fast towards the front. Gps is a good 12-14" below line of sight sitting on the dash. Cop was just being a prik.

I've been driving since 2006 and have driven 300K + miles coast to coast and didn't know about sailing mud flaps. Still a rookie I guess.

I think the mudflap reg is when it's parked, how can you measure it going down the road?

How high it can be off the ground also depends on how far behind the wheel it is. It can be higher as it is moved farther behind the tire. I'd fight that one. As it moves up it moves back, as long as it's within spec when stopped it should stay within spec moving.

All of the crap hanging from the rear view mirror in a car or truck should be outlawed. I see all kinds of things, including CD's which are reflective. It is just another common sense area that somehow gets overlooked by the HP.
