    This brings up a good question: If your residence state does not have any laws requiring mud flats, can a police officer in the visiting state right you a ticket?

    Am glad as well not having to worry about mud flaps living in Nevada, but was curious if some California police officer could write me a ticket.

    Meanwhile, I do not see myself commuting to Hawaii anytime soon, so not worried about that far west:

    Absolutely, local laws are what the officers enforce. Whether it be mud flaps, tinted windows etc. Not just CA, UT is pretty strict on mudflaps as well IIRC.

    I thought their jurisdiction ended at the state line in most states. With the exception if they were already in a pursuit of a crime that first occurred within their area of jurisdiction.

    Going through Oregon last March on the way to Moab, a patrol car pulled me over because my fenders width didn't cover my tires completely...she said the only reason I didn't get a ticket was my HI plates & my mud flaps on the Brute...

    As mentioned, aside from CA, UT can be a tough state to travel through without mud flaps especially during EJS. That being said, since wearing NV plates, I no longer get pulled over in CA. I've had law enforcement pull up to my 6 to give things a look but then drive on by. I have been pulled over in WA almost immediately after crossing the border but the officer let me go after having a good laugh that my tires would actually be legal in NV being that it could throw "cats and small children from its lugs".

    As a matter of fact

    If you recall, I had a whole thread dedicated to all the times I've been pulled over for mud flap violations.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
