Semi Truck Mud Flaps – 10 Things You MUST Know

Let’s take a look!

1. Semi Truck Mud Flaps Purpose

Semi truck mud flaps can also be found under the name of mud guards. These truck mud flaps, or mud guards have a unique purpose, which is providing ultimate protection to the vehicle from any flying debris.

Not only that mud flaps are providing protection to the truck, but also they are providing protection to the other vehicles that are engaged on the roads, altogether with the passengers, as well as other road users.

Thereupon, mud flaps can also provide protection to the semi truck from salt and other corrosives; thanks to the flaps these corrosives will stay off the truck and trailer.


Later-on, if we take a closer look at the protection that the mud flaps are providing, only then we could understand the purpose of the laws and regulations that most states in USA have. As I said, every state has its own set of rules and regulations in regards of mud flaps’ usage that every truck driver must comply with.
