I done the same way too., just run it vertical and not bother with horizontal runs at all in open walls in garage.

but I run with PVC sleeve or EMT sleeve until I get over 8' but anything over that just run it conventail.

I suspect the physical damage thing is regional. Some places seem to have a heart attack if there is any exposed romex, here like others mentioned, no horizontal runs through studs, just verticals.

I experience Both scenarios here. my county will allow
NM through stud frame walls (vertical & horizontal) , but
cross the county lines , several say no "sheet rock or some
type of wall covering like plywood , peg board etc , then the
NM is "subject to physical damage" and has to be sleeved
in conduit...this includes stud framed basement walls.

In many places it's in the fire or building code. It may be in the ICC/IBC, but I'm too lazy to dig around for it.

It's one of those subjective things that you get a different answer between different jurisdictions and even from different inspectors in the same jurisdiction. Then some home inspector walks in and good golly you never know what's going to happen.
