Cali Mudflap Laws?????

I got a fix-it ticket tuesday morning for no mudflaps on my truck. I have 37s on my truck and they stick out past the fenders about 3 inches so I completely understand the reason I was pulled over. But I'm curious if anyone knows whether I only need mudflaps for the rear or do I have to have them on the front as well. I found a website that sells some really nice clear mudflaps with quick releases so you can take them off when you want. They are $189 a set and I really don't want to have to pay for 2 sets if I don't have to. I looked up the California law for mudflaps but its "Greek" to me so if anyone has a clear explaination of the law it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

effectively minimize the spray or splash of water or
mud to the rear of the vehicle


So it sounds like I only need mudflaps on the rear of my truck. Am I reading this right?

I would just pay the fine and get over putting flaps on the truck. Or if you have dealer flaps you could put those back on untill the ticket is signed off.

I would just pay the fine if I didn't work on Miramar and get hassled by the MPs everytime I go thru the gate. The mudflaps I'm looking at buying have a quick release on them so I can put them on or take them off whenever I need to and if I ever get pulled over again I can just throw them on real quick and get the ticket signed off and be done with it. I don't like the look of fender flares so I'm definitely not going that route. Also, the truck never had the dealer flaps on it when I bought it so thats not an option.
