HC Deb 28 February 1934 vol 286 c1112W

asked the Minister of Transport if he has noticed that most of the mud splashed on to motor cars comes from the preceding car and that at any distance up to 30 yards the following car receives spume or mud on its windscreen from the rear wheels of the car it is following; and will he cause observation and experiments to be made with a view to encouraging or legislating that the rear wing of cars should reach to within eight inches of the road instead of approximately 18 as at present, and thus effect a much better visibility for drivers?


I am bringing the point raised by my hon. Friend to the notice of manufacturers of motor vehicles. Until I have their observations, I cannot well consider the question of more stringent regulations with regard to mudguards.
