'not responsible for broken windshields'. I know you are supposed to stay back 100 feet or so. But what if you do, and you still get hit by rock? Or something that comes flying out the back of one? What if you are passing one, or they are passing you? Are they really NOT responsible?Answer Question

No they are still responsible if they didn't do all they could to protect you. They are banking on the fact that most people just believe the sign. The same goes for signs that say "play at your own risk", if you are somewhere where they have faulty equipment they are still liable.

It really depends on your local laws. In Hampton Roads-forever ago- a law was passed mandating dump trucks provide a tarp or covering over materials in the container for that very reason. Here....I'm not sure. It looks like the more lucrative companies provide tarps over containers and the junkier dump trucks have no covering. It doesn't really matter though, road rocks that become airborne from the tires on the car in front of you can do just as much damage. I would say they are responsible for the damage, but only if you can prove it in court.
