One Virginia delegate is taking aim at drivers who dangle a certain car accessory from the backs of their trucks.
Virginia Delegate Lionel Spruill is drafting a bill that will no doubt stir up some interesting conversation among lawmakers. He wants to ban the use of a car accessory designed to look like male genitalia.
Auto Xtras, an auto parts retailer in Lynchburg, sells a brand called Truck Nuts.
They say they sell 40 to 50 pairs of Truck Nuts a year, mostly to women.
"It's all in fun. It's like anything else. You got a big truck like that; you throw something like that on it," said store employee Shane Eastwood. "It's all for attention. Everybody who does this sort of stuff does it for the attention."
As soon as Spruill's bill is drafted, Virginia lawmakers will have to give these dangly auto parts a onceover.
Spruill is taking the lead from a Maryland delegate who worked to get these accessories off the road last year.
