Default Removing white paint

So yesterday I was out driving in the rain to local high school... parked went in to see a friend came out to go home and noticed there is some kind of white paint on my left side tires in the wheel wells on the underside of the truck on the bottom of the step bar on the mud flaps and of course all over the side of my truck.....!?!$&$@$$?!!!!!!after going to a car wash and using the high pressure spray there is still paint specs all over the side of my bright silver paint did I mention?!?@&$$$@&!!!!!!I tried using a buffer on a drill and some compound but it only took out the scratches and left the little dots of white right where they stuck to my paint..they do come off when I use my thumb nail on them..I was thinking of using a plastic scraper and maybe some mineral spirits on them..any suggestions out there?I had a product from 3m called citric based industrial cleaner that is safe for painted surfaces and it seemed to work but i ran out and could not find it locally

Tried mineral spirits...didn't work.....tried the stuff the wife got...no good...now I'm off to lowes to find goof off 2..... Says it takes off dried latex paint which is what I hope it is...this is really depressing...thanks for the replies and well wishes on removal...I go back to work on Thursday and if I can't fix it maybe the detail company we use at work has something or can buff it off with acreal buffer and different compounds..but it still sucks because it is on a lot of stuff under the truck and I was getting close to lifting it but now am thinking of getting rid of it....

sounds like you ran over some freshly painted lines on the road. at least it aint as bad as a jeep that came into the dealer one time. a 5 gallon bucket of white paint fell off a truck and they hit it doin like 65 i think. busted up the bumper and radiator i think, and undercoated the underside in white
