Default Yellow street paint removal

Just came inside from WASHING my PT after I was splashed/speckled with yellow street paint. Was coming home and the street painter was coming my way. This is a very narrow road and there was no where to get away from the spray.
Luckily I was 2 minutes from my home, so I sprayed with Windex and washed IMMEDIATELY with hose and used a microfiber washcloth. (Windex was what I could grab immediately)
I have a cool vanilla Touring, so the paint was very obvious. Was just going to rinse off, but decided to wash so that I could really see if I had missed any speckles of yellow paint. Yes, I did miss some and was glad I washed the car.)
*Just hope the homeowners police don't report me to the county because we are in drought conditions.
Washing your car
in the blazing sun
at noontime
in front of the garbage man
is not smart!
However, my paint is saved and I now have a semi clean car

I did that years ago back in Maryland. They had just painted the yellow lines and I had to make a turn and cross over them. Luckaly most of the paint went into the wheelwells but a little splattered onto the sides of the car. I used Bug & Tar remover to get the yellow off the sides.
