Alaska Tire Exposure Laws?
So I got a fix it ticket on Monday, well two fix it tickets. One was for mirrors. I didn't have any side mirrors on my newly painted half doors and the Officer told me I need both sides. I then found the reg that states I need the Left, I'm also required to have one mirror near the center of the vehicle or on both sides. He misinformed me which has now got me thinking about infraction number two: Tire exposure. He said that I can't have more that 14 inches of exposed tire, so I am required to put mud flaps on. Not to sound like a jerk but mud flaps are pretty dang lame. On a giant muddin truck or whatever, yeah that fine, but on a Jeep it's just stupid. Plus eveywhere I look I see way more that 14 inces of tire exposed. In any case, I looked on the AK legislature website pertaining to vehicle laws and nothing has come up on tire exposure, only required tread depth. I will avoid mud flaps at any cost. If anyone knows more on this let me know.
TIA for any assistance.
Check the air tires, thats where the power is generated.
