Can You Legally Drive Naked in Colorado?
Have you heard of shower thoughts?
Collins Dictionary defines them as random questions that occur to a person while doing something boring like showering — and this is one of them.
So, can you legally drive naked in Colorado?
Your gut reaction is probably to say "no," but the Centennial State does seem to have an affinity for nudity — in fact, Denver is apparently the 18th best city to bike naked in, and Boulder used to have a Naked Pumpkin Run.
Driving naked isn't technically against the law
HonestPolicy reports that it's not illegal to drive naked anywhere in the U.S. — and Reader's Digest and DirtLegal.com back this up.
The publication even refers to Colorado's nudity statutes as "more situational" than in other states.
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should
Much like getting it on in a Colorado car, the primary issue with driving naked is that someone might see you, which could land you in hot water because of Colorado's public indecency laws.
According to HG.org, the Centennial State characterizes indecent exposure as the act of knowingly exposing your private areas "to the view of any person under circumstances in which such conduct is likely to cause affront or alarm to the other person."

So, driving naked isn't enough to get you in trouble alone; however, couple that with getting pulled over or accidentally flashing fellow drivers, and you're breaking the law.
If you still want to proceed...
HonestPolicy suggests driving cautiously, choosing less-traveled routes, keeping your car roof intact, and having some backup clothes if you want to risk being on the road in the buff.
Still, it's probably better to avoid any sticky situations in the first place — and keep your clothes on.
