Quick trip.....

Postby Niner Delta » Sun Feb 18, 2018 10:47 pm

Had to make a quick trip across the state to attend a memorial for my niece that passed away.
A sudden heart attack, she was only 51, way too young...... :(
It was about 800 miles round trip because I had to go around the mountain passes, because I don't
have snow tires..... :roll: ...... So it became a 8 hour drive each way instead of 6 hours through
the pass. Lots of snow in places and lots of wrecks, 3 times it took me about 30 minutes of crawling
to get past them.
During one of the crawls I was next to a semi and noticed the caps on his lug nuts, this is a poor
photo taken through my windshield... between wiper swipes.
This driver has obviously seen too many "Mad Max" movies........... :mrgreen:

Did a Google search. Maybe they are against the law in some places.

Only place I could find they are actually illegal is Hawaii, but that was only a quick search.

So, what is the actual point of those?
I have seen yellow arrow like attachments that would show if a wheel nut was loose but these just look pointless........

Aside from the "pointless" pun.......... :lol:
They have no purpose, they are just a decoration to customize the truck, like chrome exhaust stacks
or the extra lights all over the cab, and even chrome wheels..... :mrgreen:
