RE:Getting caught driving nude.

Does anyone have any other experiences theyd like to share with driving nude through a toll booth? What were the reactions from the toll collectors, if any? Thanks for sharing!

I have driven naked through a number of toll booths in Portugal and Spain. Most are automatic. Those that are manned are set high so the toll officer gets a good view down into the car. Apart from a moment's hesitation I have never had any reaction. They just take the money, wave me on my way and move onto the next car.

Define "getting caught". Does getting caught mean pulled over by the police, or just seen by other drivers? I have driven the length of I-95 from PA to FL, I-40 from Norfolk to Western NC nude, and often drive nude between home and work or other short excursions. I have always had a pair of shorts handy to cover up in situations that seem to warrant the need to cover up, and sit on a towel. I have been seen by truckers and other drivers. Usually in higher sitting cars or SUVs.
It seems to me that if people aren't expecting to see nude drivers they don't notice, most people are in their own world and don't notice their surroundings as much as they should, that's another subject.
I have heard stories of people in FL being caught driving nude and arrested. I have never heard of the final results of said arrest though. I think that probably there was more going on the car than just simple nudity.
After all...I think most people on the highway don't really care what the attire of the other drivers is.
Anyway, nudity is not an accepted attire when in public in most places in the USA. Just because you're in your car does not provide an expectation of privacy (IMHO). So one needs to be careful.
I have been seen often and have had many passing experiences as mentioned, fortunately, I suppose, the ones that have "caught" me just considered it a welcome break to the monotony of a long drive. It certainly, for me makes the drive more enjoyable.

I was caught once driving nude. I was in my van stopped at traffic lights and didn't notice a girl about 25 on her bike, riding up beside me. She looked in the window as she got level with me, and saw it all. She was shocked for a moment then gave me a huge grin and a wink. Just then the lights changed and she rode down the side road where i couldn't follow her. She definitely wasn't offended or upset though!

That is the usual reaction of most people (except possibly in USA).

I would agree that there is a strong likelihood that someone could be offended in the USA.
Will have to defer to those of you who live elsewhere that most people there would not be.

Indeed. I was reading one of those Am I The A**hole posts on Reddit. The poster was a young lady who had been at a party where she described everyone as drunk and high. Most if not all of the women had taken off their tops as the night went on, and most of the men, their pants. A friend of the poster who normally takes candid pictures at gatherings did so then, as the poster tells it, of just the women. The poster and other women asked him to delete the pictures, as nudes getting out would ruin their jobs. It struck me as a bit sad that they felt that mere nudity off the clock would lead to professional ruin. But, its just another sign of how US culture sees nudity as inherently sexual and perverse.

Sort of caught. I passed through the Border Patrol Check at Blythe, coming from Arizona. Some how, I must have been more visible than I realized; the female agent smiled and gave me a thumbs up. Maybe the have mirrors that show the inside of the car.

Unfortunately it's not just the USA. I am a naturist, live as a naturist and often drive as a naturist. However I go to great lengths to make sure "work" don't know. It would be frowned upon by upper management at the very least. I hate to think what would happen if they knew I regularly drove their company car naked.

Many of my colleagues are also prudish, with one even going "ewe" when I mentioned taking my shirt off on the beach

Surprising because from what I read on the board, public nudity is generally legal in the UK

Legal yes, socially accepted - varies quite a lot, but there are some real prudes around.

You could walk through a busy shopping mall and it would be totally legal. That does not mean that people would accept it. You would almost certainly get arrested, either on a public order or sexual offense, neither of which you would technically be guilty of provided behaved yourself.

In UK law, very simply if it's legal dressed, it's legal naked.

By sticking to less populated or more relaxed environments we are successfully able to be naked in public. I have been (pre-lock down) one of 15 naked men walking as a group through Sherwood Forest. A very pleasant day and we met about 7 different parties of textiles, mainly couples or two men, without a single negative reaction.

I have driven naked almost daily for the last 3 years and regularly before that. However, I don't consider that as public nudity as I've only ever been seen once that I know of. I just got a smile and a thumbs up
