Take the dashboard too literally and your brains might end up all over it

It's not that uncommon in the US NorthEast where copious amounts of road salt are used in winter. Rocks or other stuff thrown up from the road scratch the paint on oil pans which then rust and eventually start to leak oil. Happens mostly with older cars of course, but modern cars often stay on the road for 15-20 years.
