While researching a driving trip to Alaska, I came across an Alaskan motor law,
13 AAC 04.265. Antispray device
(a) No person may drive a motor vehicle unless it has a device which effectively reduces the wheel spray or splash of water or other substance to the rear of the vehicle.
(b) The device required in (a) of this section must be installed and maintained so that the device placed behind a wheel extends downward to a distance of 14 inches from the surface of the ground when the vehicle is standing on level ground.
The description in b) make it appear that it applies only to large vehicles. A regular passenger car or SUV usually does not have a ground clearance of 14 inches from the surface.
My question is: Does this law apply to passenger cars/SUVs or large trucks? And if it applies to passenger cars, do built in "mud flaps" such as those on Subaru Outbacks (see pic) qualify?
