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.

      All drivers in Bay Area around San Francisco are the worse! They drive like headless chickens! Its horrible.
    • expectnothing on:
      So true!
    • Joey on:
      They are the dumbest people in the ENTIRE world, and I have been all over the world. The driving is derived from a lawless state and group of people who watch politicians have no rules and laws, so therefore they follow suit, which so happens to be "Follow the leader" which is a whole other problem of unoriginal thoughts that these mindless zombies have. But here is the real problem... the want-to-be utopian nature of everything, from the "yoga" to the "eco friendly" to the "lgbt" to the "rainbow parade" and the list goes on and on and on where they can find any reason to micromanage and control your daily life through the brainwash that turned them into the "Let's turn you into an idiot too" mentality... Those specific reasons give the green light for ANYONE and I mean ANYONE to act like a complete mindless, narcissistic socipathic WACKJOB and get away with it free and clear. The driving is just a mirror image of what is going on in these entitled liberal lefty wackos minds who have NO CONCEPT of REALITY outside of the borders of California. 2+2= 4.5 to these idiots all day long, but to be quite frank, there is a possibility that these idiots are mentally lobotomized from the insane levels of fluoride in their public water supply which taints their consciousness to be a walking zombie, just my opinion. All the noise, cars with loud volumes, very mixed society, house on top of house, low income jobs, overpopulation, rudeness, constant drinking and partying everywhere, insanely loud neighbors... THIS IS WHY THESE PEOPLE ARE SO NUMB!!!! <-- Someone who finds great relief finding this website, thank you.
    • Joey on:
      or a better person... these are someone of the most ethically messed up people... with terrible intentions on purpose, and unfortunately if you call them out on it, they play dumb trying to make you question your own sanity. This state should float off far into the pacific. What a waste of human potential...
    • Lina on:
      I don't understand how these amazing people are so terrible driving a car!!! California drivers totally suck!!! DMV need to do something! :(
    • Your bad at driving too on:
      You realize you're adding to the problem judging from your reactions to others incapable driving. I stopped reading because I know your one of the worst of them all and this is a hypocritical article. You should all have your licenses taken away.
    • BJ on:
      I do not see hit and run accidents as much as anywhere in this country. Everyday morning, there are so many cases I see on the news.. Why???? If it rains, forget it... You think you have to drive 20 mph on the highway when you see a rain drop.... People drive in rain and snow all the time. I see that CA people are not used to drive with rain but at least try to learn instead of driving 20 mph and saying it is safer... Why don't you walk instead? It is much safer that way.
    • BJ Yangberg on:
      I have lived in FL, AL, MA, MD, NJ, NY and now in CA. CA drivers are the worst among all the states I have lived. Therefore, I am trying to be very truthful and input with "Fact Base" here. I agree lots of things said above but there are some other things. 1. Turn Signal (Already Mentioned) I videotaped so many times because it really made me laugh and angry. I say 30% would be pretty high for people use blinkers. In other state, you get a ticket if you did not use blinkers. In SoCal, No one uses blinkers and it is ok. When they use it, it is not that you would like to let other drivers to know that you are changing the lane of making a turn. Lots of people do it in the middle of the turn. Why bother? 2. Texting People still text while driving and I see that everyday everywhere. When they do, I noticed that majority of them go 35mph on 50mph zone and causing traffic. PLEASE pull over, text and get back on the road. Stay away from your phone... 3. Traffic Light I see so many people in the front so far away from the line so that they do not even go over the sensor on the road. Another thing is you leave 2 school buses space between the car in front of you and your car. One light can make 10 cars pass but with this, only 4 get to go. I know CA people are very laid back, relaxed but come on... Let's move. If you are making turns, please use your blinkers before you get on the left or right lane, not after you get on the turning lane then turn the signal. When you are suddenly slowing down, people behind you do not know what you are doing. 4. Highway Driving It is called "Freeway" here in CA. I get it. But it doesn't mean you can go 50mph on the left lane causing traffic, people keep passing you on the right. If you would like to drive slow, it is your choice but do not cause a massive traffic or make other people to pass you on the right. There are other countries that left lane is specifically for passing and you will get a ticket if you hold up a traffic. It is a common sense. My 3 years of driving experience in CA has been nothing but nightmare... People just stop in the middle of the road without turning signal or any justification. I find it very selfish... I can't wait to get out of CA not to deal with driving. I have driven in most of States but CA makes the worst of all. It is a FACT....
    • BJ Yangberg on:
      When you are on HOV lane or passing lane going 50 mph in 65 mph zone, cars passing within speed limit on your right side, please move over. Do not block the whole traffic behind you. Be courteous... I see people leaving 10 school buses space in between cars. Move along with the traffic so that you do not have to be causing the traffic. If you do not want to drive with speed limit, then move over to your right and let others move...
    • Vic on:
      "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.

  • 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.

    Disclaimer: You’re on your own with these tips. They are not the official law and in no way represent what you should be doing should a cop pull you over.
