Hi Mike, Thanks for posting this. Nice to know I'm illegal anywhere I go in Canada. It must be like down here... as long as you don't flunk the "attitude test" they pretty much leave you alone.

A litttle more on Manitoba proposed legislation:

FENDERS
18.1 Every special motor vehicle shall be equipped with fenders and/or adequate body coverage designed to cover the entire tread width that comes in contact with the road surface. Coverage of the tire tread circumference shall be from at least 15 degrees in front to at least 90 degrees to the rear of the vertical centre line at each wheel measured from the centre of wheel rotation. At no time shall the fender or adequate body coverage contact the tire.

More info on all other proposed legislation is available at:

Default Fender coverage...

There was a petition going around for the fair weather law a few years ago but I never heard the results..

Just because it looks cool that doesn't mean you don't have to have them. I've met guys that have been ticketed and fined for not abiding and I've met guys that have been left alone regarding fenders.

A retired DMV inspector from Quesnel BC told me in regards to fenders and how they need to be placed on each wheel:

Measure 4 x tire diameter from center of the wheel back, make a mark. Draw a line or use a piece of string from the mark to the top of the tire and the center of the hub of the wheel. The area between the lines is where your fender needs to be placed so as to not spray water and debry to the rear of the vehicle.
