Ok We're all familiar with the concept of this thread. We all hold personal believes about certain types of cars and the people that drive them.
Living in Los angeles it seems to me that certain types of personalities drive certain cars. for instance in my experience a majority of people who
drive Range Rovers seem to have absolutely no regard for anybody else on the road. after all they are rich, trendy and most importantly going
somewhere and doing something more important than you. Everywhere I go around town it seems like if there is a car parked in a red zone, double
parked, taking up two spaces, or driving with general disdain for anybody else who is incovenienceing them as they go to where ever they are going.
Now keep in mind this is NOT every Range Rover driver but it seems to me to be the majority.
Next up for me is like 75% of all of LA's 3 series BMW drivers. it seems to me like every 40K a year millionairs (people who spend like they are
millionairs but make 40K a year) cruise around in these cars trying to get attention for themselves. at stop lights they are reving their engines,
driving you insane with their blue super high output halogen lights, riding your tail because they mistake the exhaust leak in your muffler for a
supped up toyota and want to race. Parking in handy capped spots because they cant be bothered to look for a legit spot to park. Passing anybody on
the shoulder or on the right, cause 50 MPH on the street just ain't fast enough for them. I don't get it.
Whats up with LA's prius drivers. I frequently travel out of LA for work, and it seems like every other city where people own and drive prius cars
they are normal thoughtful friendly human beings. but the second I come back to LA it seems like only trendy ,self entitled people drive prius cars.
Old ladies racing them up and down the street (weird getting passed by a prius cause I'm not driving fast enough, and I drive plenty fast) Busy moms
doing illegal U turns who are too lazy to simply drive around the block. Half the times I've been cut off lately have been from prius drivers.
It's like here in LA they think that they are making a green statement or something and that it obsolves them from having to follow the basic laws
and rules for the road. After all they are driving a "green" car which gives them karmic leverage over you.
Early 20 something trust fund babies who have no idea about reality or work or how to manage money but they can spend daddies money. Around LA they
all seem to drive (other than 3 series BMWs) those used 300IS lexus. Turn signals, what are those. oops did I cut you off so that I can go from the
far right parked at the curb across two lanes to the left turn signal at the intersection without looking because I figured everybody would simply
just get out of my way, because I'm self centered and only care about me. People will just simply yield to me cause I drive lexus.
Whats weird is that all the people I see driving ferraries and lambroghinis in LA are actually really polite on the road. actually make full stops at
stop signs etc... go figure.
So ATS'ers out there in your neck of the woods what cars seems to attract certain drivers. less than savory drivers. What sorta cars drive you
nuts. is it the guy with the truck with lifters that stands 8 feet high and rides your tail on the highway. is it the people who drive the mercedes
cl's who nearly rear end you at every stop sign because they honestly don't expect you to come to a full stop infact they think your a dick if you
don't roll through the stop, and if you do come to a complete stop they will rear end you because they weren't expecting you to actually stop at a
stop sign, I mean who does that, stop at a stop sign.
