The dangers of road spray
Spray emitted from heavy vehicles in wet weather is a major safety hazard, causing serious problems to all motorists, especially on motorways.
Water impacting a standard mud flap or fender breaks up and forms a fine particle spray blowing out from the side and rear of the vehicle into the path of overtaking vehicles.
Drivers of overtaking cars can lose vision entirely; a few moments can seem endless. The situation is frightening and potentially dangerous. Similarly for the truck driver, rear vision is obstructed, causing further danger for trucks and cars.
