SUVs/Trucks

In rural areas and say northern California people get trucks for real applications such as for their jobs, working, or carrying stuff on a regular basis. However in Southern California and other parts, people get trucks just to be pushy jerks. You even see things such as a giant truck with a girl driving with “silly boys trucks are for girls.” They don’t haul anything and they’re jacked up really high where the girls can barely get in them and have big problems parking them. They can sometimes drive them ok but it’s really funny watching them try to park or get out/in the truck.

In the 80s/90s there were a lot of family vans. The Dodge Caravan was king. Then in the late 1990s and 2000s, people switched to SUVs. SUVs were higher and “cooler” than minivans. Guys don’t want to be stuck in a “lame minivan.” The top sales for several car companies are now SUVs. The SUVs are everywhere. Sometimes they are actually full of people but often it’s just one person driving a big SUV. That’s a big waste in gas and speed but if that’s what people want to do…What’s nice about SUVs are they are good for carrying families and carrying items in an enclosed space vs. the old days when you had a pickup truck with a tarp.

Then there are the truck people. They’re getting less common but what they do is take a truck or SUV or Hummer H2 and jack it up (raise/lift kit) really high. Often they raise the trucks to an illegal height. They think they are driving Big Foot. Nearly always they have a, “I’m a big truck, get out of my way” complex. Often peoples say “the bigger your truck, the smaller your dick.” They drive in the fast lane, often very slow with huge space ahead of them. They have a whole f everbody else attitude. People are forced to pass them on the right. Then often I cut back in front of them with no signal. You could get ran over by them, but as long as you go fast enough, don’t worry!

What happens when it is truck vs. truck? My friend drove a small pickup truck for years. What he discovered is whoever has the bigger truck wins. So a small truck will be hogging the fast lane and a bigger one will come up behind them and the smaller truck will get scared and get out of the way.

There are a lot of benefits to a SUV. The view is much better. Being up high is fun because you can see above most of the cars. Some SUVs might flip/turn over more, but otherwise are great in crashes vs. cars. SUVs are awesome for “pushing” people out of the way. You’ll discover as a car, no one gets out of your way. But once you get in a SUV or a vehicle that is big or up high, the people get scared and move out of the way. I rented an SUV two times for Thanksgiving and drove the 5 to Sacramento. I noticed a big difference vs. my car in how people got out of the way. So some switch to SUVs just to get some people to move out of their way. SUVs are also great for carrying things. Some SUVs can also tow camper trailers or boats. My next car might be the Buick Enclave (small SUV).

But ultimately most SUVs are often really poor gas milelage and hog the road and are dicks. They’re a huge enemy and scourge of the road.

SUV Trends
SUV people are always so trendy. There’s always an “IT” SUV that they all have to have. But then people can’t afford to upgrade to the latest trend. So they look hilariously like posers as they have aging “It” SUVs that are no longer cool or trendy. It’s hilarious. They tried to be trendy and now are outdated and sad. Here’s some of the trends over the years:
Toyota 4 Runner – One of the first SUVs. I rented one about 3 years back. It was pretty cool

Range Rover/Landrovers – People discovered that the UK had a totally awesome SUV that is good at off road. So then idiots in US bought them for insane prices. They put lame wheels on them and proceeded to never drive them off road, what they were designed for. I’ve always wanted one (to go off road).

Humvee – When the war started in 2003, people wanted to show their support for the troops. They loved the bad ass military Humvees. People discovered that you could buy a civilian version for only something like $150k. Well that was too expensive for some posers so they took a truck frame and dumped a fake Humvee body on it and sold the H2 to posers who couldn’t afford the real Humvee. So every time you see those laugh. They cost something like $50k but it’s still a poser version. Jackass in H2
They even made an H3 for people who couldn’t even afford that one. These were trendy back when gas prices were only $1-2 a gallon. But It’s really dumb to be driving those around at $3-4 a gallon. Now it’s just a statement that they have a lot of money to waste on gas.

BMW SUV – OMG BMW makes a SUV. These were the top cool SUV for a while.

Porsche SUV – This was suddenly the ultimate SUV. The twin turbo came in at something like $120,000. That’s more than my chick’s house in Oregon. There’s a cheaper version too. They’re pretty quick but my $9k car can still beat them. I see a ton of them around too. Lots of rich people here.

Lamborghini SUV? – Way back in 1986 they had a SUV. They looked awesome. This was never trendy but I thought I’d throw that in.

Cadillac Escalade – The SUV of drug dealers and rich people. I like the way they look but I hear they aren’t that great. We bought our Honda Odyssey from someone who had just bought one and they regretted it and wanted to keep the Odyssey but couldn’t.

Now? I just see 50 different types of SUVs.

Tips: Pass them on the right. If you’re an SUV driver, get out of the way and don’t hog the left lanes if a faster car comes up.

      Why?
      "Quite often you see people that will turn right in front of you cutting you off when you are going some insane speed." The problem is your driving at an insane speed. It's insane aa you say.
    • Vic on:
      Why?
      Who the hell do you think you are thinking like you own the road driving dangerously fast, putting lives in jeopardy? Slower, law abiding drivers also have a right to get in the fast lane if they need to switch freeways. I hope they install cameras to get all these potential murderers.

      Don't piss off the truckers
      I have lived in cali for about 5 years now, originally from the mid west. one thing I notice is truck drivers are complete asshloes here. they always drive in the far right lane, don't even slow down to let cars merge. they act like they're driving minis and not an 18 ton car crusher.complete disregard for safty and totally unprofessional. maybe we need another way to ship goods!!!
    • Shijian zhang on:
      Why?
      Hey, bro. I think you might be one of those bad driver! Many people said most left lab is a express lane! Who tol you that? Is there any different limit speed for different lane on the free way? Limit speed for any of the lanes on the free way! Of course I agree that slower traffics are better to stay in the most right lane but it is doesn't mean that you can go over speeding in the most left lane on the free way! I am a California driving instructor and owner. I believe that you need to learn driving again!
    • Dur on:
      Why?
      California drivers 80% are stupid drivers,they are reckless, careless drivers and bad attitude.
    • Kendrix on:
      Why?
      I agree and I have lived in California for the last 3 years. And yes, thus is the worst state i have yet to see in the US. There's so many people that drive here with no licenses and no insurance. And people who need to really go through drivers ed. My husband was rear ended on Highway I5 by a van with an illegal driver, my husband pulled over so did they but once my husband got out of the car they sped away. We got the license plate called the cops and they were able to track them down, but they used the excuse that the owner did not drive that day and that he did not know who drove his van that day. Our insurance took care of everything after finding out that the driver was indeed illegal, have no license. Again this morning this guy (if you can call him that, cut me off from a non passing lane and proceeded to slam on his break causing me to almost rear end him. And the jerk had the audacity to flick me off and cuss me out! He even went as far as telling me to get out of my car and Duke it out! What? So I did, I opened my door and guess what? The idiot ran a red light just to get away! Haha haha! Guess he was afraid of getting a beat down from a female! Which I'm glad it did not go that far as he's not worth going yo jail for! So, whoever you are black mini Cooper license plate 6XYK224, calm down, lay off the steroids and take anger management class along with driver's ed to learn how to drive properly!

      Why?
      LA drivers truly suck. I have been around the world and most of the other states. This is I notice for LA: 1) pass at the right drive slow on the left. 2) Weave in and out of lanes. This causes traffic for no reason. 3) ride ass. This also cause traffic for nothing. 4) drive too fast or too slow. Drive the speed of traffic. 5) not allow merging. The merger needs to drive the speed of traffic. The existing just needs to drive the same speed and make slight adjustments. 6) stupid lights. What is this blinking green left turnin the middle of rush hour. Do this at night. 7) stop driving like assholes. In most places thugs drive this way.
    • Name on:
      Why?
      In Cali slow drivers cut off fast drivers, the exiting lane is now the passing lane to the point where they go on the exiting island. Not saying it happened once or twice. No, you'll watch 5 cars do it in 15 min. Everyone's on there phone. I almost get hit 3 times a day. And I just commute around my own city. It doesn't help that new drivers are given bmw's ether. They should have a license retake test every 4 years or so to get rid of some crazy drivers.

      Watch These Army Humvees Violently Crash Into The Ground After A Failed Airdrop
      I've lived in CA all my life. In 1987, the traffic in Orange County was gettin horrendous. In '91, I moved to San Diego and it was so much better. But, that was a long time ago. The County/City allows excessive growth, we have illegals driving here uninsured and with dangerous driving habits, and now a larger influx who drive here legally. It feels like I'm playing bumper cars at a Fair, going 70 mph! Not to mention the texters, cell phone users, tailgaters, weavers, and slow pokes. Seriously. If you are driving 45-60, stay in the SLOW lane. If 75-80, stay in the FAST lane. People forget there are consequences to driving like fools. Vehicular Manslaughter for one..PRISON. Maiming a person. Losing your license. Citations, which are one wks wages, here in CA. If you missed your exit, don't cut off 3 lanes of traffic! Get off at the NEXT exit and circle around! These things are such basics. And if CA DMV continues to hand out licenses like candy to uninsured, incompetent drivers, they are due a massive lawsuit! Gov and Employees! I think if SD continues to add more businesses and housing in already congested areas, they are due a massive lawsuit as well! One time it took me 45 minutes to drive 3 miles! And they're adding MORE business buildings to that area!? So, why do I stay? FAMILY. I appreciate that we have various cultures here, lots to do, decent weather, but we do have a lot of people here who are clueless about personal space! Some people are snooty, have a sense of entitlement and some are just plain ol' mean and act like elitists. There are pervs all throughout our neighborhoods, sex offenders. Yeah, that gives me a GREAT sense of security. And people are messed up with addictions of all sorts. THIS is what Boxer, Feinstein, Brown and the Liberals have done to this beautiful state. Not to mention introducing sex ed at Kindergarten on up. Which has led to sexual harassment in the schools...."boys" pressuring their classmates to sleep with them. What a travesty! Now Obama wants to allow males in all Girls and Women's Restrooms?!? Do you not see the MADNESS of this political party? "Bad is good; good is bad." Forcing Nuns to cover insurance which covers abortion??? When he said Americans would not be forced to pay for abortions. This nation was founded with the Declaration of Independence, "Rights to...LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness..." We protect unhatched Eagle's Eggs. They have more rights than Humans, by Hillary's estimation! Children born here by illegal parents are given Constitutional rights as US citizens, even before birth. The illegal mother gets free medical assistance, as well as the unborn and newborn child. It's a farce. Hillary is just trying to buy votes....or she has lost her soul. Don't you see, as we elect godless leaders, who have no conscience, we ALL suffer the consequences. Are you paying more taxes? More out of pocket for medical care and insurance? I AM. $3000 per yr out of pocket, plus premiums. "You will not pay one more dime when Obamcare goes through." LIE. Honesty, integrity, value for Life, protecting those who are WEAK, who have no voice, treating others as YOU would like to be treated. Would you have wanted to be murdered in the womb? Torn apart in a painful abortion, so your cells could be used in experiments (btw, which so far has not yielded one cure)? Vote your CONSCIENCE. Vote with the values instilled in your soul. Drop any candidate who is self seeking, miopic, blind to the state of the nation, perverting our land. Drop any candidate who is an iron fisted bully or a spineless blob. 1 chance, the you're out! If they fail to live up to their promises. Recall them. Impeach them. Stop the senseless spending.

  • About

    I’ve driven in California since 1991. I’ve spent many trips running up and down the state as well as driving in many other states. After all of this driving, I became fed up with how bad California drivers on. I wanted to point out what they do to either help change a few drivers or at least entertain the rest of the world with Californian’s horrible driving.

    I’m located in Orange County in a couple of the richest areas. I see every type of car that is out there in this area. It’s like a car show. Going to a car show isn’t exciting anymore because you see most of the cars driving around anyway. I also work at a place where people buy all the different types of cars. We have Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Lotus, etc. So you can even see a lot of the cars in the work parking lot.
