Post Ricer codebook of driving

As of recent (maybe not so recent) stereotyping, an outfit on the web came out with the 10 biggest pet peeves people had with the driving habits of the “younger generation”.

Of course it doesn’t differ much from a regular soccer mom being a pest on the road, or Uncle Bobhaving one of his raging moments.* Below is the top 10 of what these folks could come up with. Pretty sad if you ask me!


10.)
Ricer: You must tailgate at all times. If you are more than a foot away from the car in front of you, you are not trying hard enough.
Average Everyday Asshole: You must tailgate at all times. If you are more than a foot away from the car in front of you, you may actually be devoting half your brain to driving, or allowing another person to infringe on your God-given right to drive 56.3 MPH on that particular stretch of road.

9.)
Ricer: Never turn off your high beams. You get extra points if they are aimed up.
Average Everyday Asshole: Never turn off your fog lights. Not only did you pay for them, thus validating their use, but youíre not sure where the off switch is anyways.

8.)
Ricer: Signaling lets others know where you are going. Winning the race is easier if other cars can never be sure where you plan to go next.
Average Everyday Asshole: Signaling informs others of your God-given right to be in their lane. After all, if you signaled, you gave them fair warning to get out of your way.

7.)
Ricer: Always weave through traffic. Your car was built with extremely advanced suspension and handling. Use it.
Average Everyday Asshole: Since you have no idea where the performance limit of your vehicle ó or anyone elseís ó lies, you should take extreme offense to anyone driving slightly outside of the norm or, god forbid, trying to pass you while youíre sitting in the fast lane your lane. Call the police and exercise blocking maneuvers the second you see someone doing this. Itís your responsibility to fight terrorism.

6.)
Ricer: Speed limits are for suckers. Live a little.
Average Everyday Asshole: The unwritten 10 MPH over on the highway rule should not be broken by anyone, ever. See above. In neighborhoods, the 25 MPH limit is for suckers and should be ignored at all costs.

5.)
Ricer: Never check your mirrors when you are changing lanes. When you are traveling over 100 mph in a car with drum brakes, it is important to keep your eyes on the road at all times.
Average Everyday Asshole: Never check your mirrors when you are changing lanes. The huge SUV that itís your God-given right to drive will pulverize anyone foolish enough to get in your way.

4.)
Ricer: Donít talk on the phone. You have an unlimited texting plan. Use it.
Average Everyday Asshole: Talk on the phone at all times. Statistics that suggest doing so is more dangerous than drunk driving are a lie perpetrated by the devil liberals.

3.)
Ricer: Your parking brake is actually designed for handbrake turns. Make sure to practice on wet roads at high speeds. Good drifters are sideways at all times.
Average Everyday Asshole: Whatís a parking brake? Your transmission wouldnít have a ĎParkí setting if you needed to do anything else when parking on a hill.

2.)
Ricer: Everybody loves the sound your car makes with your new exhaust. Share this sound with as many people as you can by driving through residential neighborhoods at wide open throttle no earlier than 2 a.m.
Average Everyday Asshole: Anything thatís loud must be a terrorist. Drown out their evil ways by blasting the Clear Channel radio station of your choice.

1.)
Ricer: Donít upgrade your brakes when you buy bigger rims. Physics doesnít apply to your car. Stopping distances donít matter as much as looks anyway.
Average Everyday Asshole: Donít ever bother learning how to use the full ability of your brakes. That Driverís Ed course in high school is the only training an expert like you ever needs. Driving a really big SUV will mean that youíll obliterate anyone foolish enough to get in your way anyways. Driving well is for suckers.

Sounds like the Ricer Integra driver who was following me last night and weaving in and out of traffic, with his painted drum rotors, altezza tails, and Ricer super fast-flash turn signals (OMG, he was using turn signals).

What's wrong with using my foglights when it's not foggy out? If they're there, why not use them? And they make the car look even meaner!

I mean, this is an Intrepid we're talking about, so they're low to the ground. The fog lights on my brother's Ram are even with everyone's rearview mirror, so those aren't pleasant to see when he's behind them.
