If your tire picks up a rock and it hits the windshield of the car behind you are you liable for the damage to the windshield?

No, this is the same as those big trucks that say that they are not responsible if you are following too close, and a rock hits your windshield. If it happens, the other person is just SOL unless they have insurance that will cover it.

The short answer is no. From the perspective of an insurance company this is seen as a road hazard or "Act of God" rather than an act of negligence and is covered if you have comprehensive coverage.

They use picks so they wouldn't damage the dinosaur bones in the process of digging them up.

Sure! I recommend plastic though, not metal, as this can damage the strings.

i use a sheet of plastic over my windshield usually it stays on unless the wind really picks up! as for the locks spray a shot of WD40 on them and they wont freeze up! make sure not to spray it all over the paint as this may cause paint discoloration!
