What law?

I took this photo at the car wash yesterday on my cell phone camera. I have been retired from law enforcement for almost five years now, so maybe there are some new laws. The sign says that anyone washing a muddy truck will be charged to the "fullest extent of the law." Why wouldn't the car wash want to wash the muddy trucks? Aren't they in the business to wash dirty vehicles? Maybe they don't want the mud in their drains, I don't know. I checked my SUV, which is essentially a truck, to see that I had a little road mud on it. I went in anyway. I hoped that a cop wouldn't come by and give me a "mud washing ticket"! I can just imagine the call to the police dispatcher. SOMEONE IS IN THE CAR WASH WITH A MUDDY TRUCK, SEND A SQUAD CAR OVER AND ARREST THEM! I think the dispatcher might just hang up, thinking it was a prank call. Anyway, I am just not sure where you should take a muddy truck if not to the car wash. What about a muddy car - is that OK? Too weird.

A carwash is just the place you would think would allow muddy trucks! But this reminds me of the 'mud cops' my husband has to deal with in construction. No mud must come off of the construction site onto the public road, which is understandable, but when building in Gainesville, Georgia, the law was enforced by men with badges and guns. So now he is always on the lookout for the Mud Cops!

Hilarious, Tuff :) Seems ridiculous. It does make one wonder, doesn't it?
Our temp is up to 45º and supposed to climb to 53º today. A nice little taste of spring after all the frigid temps we've had. I can even see patches of bare ground. Rain is predicted for tonight and strong winds tomorrow, so we'll enjoy today's mild weather while it's here.

I took my muddy Jeep there today and have been on the Lamb ever since...
