Default Does driving a ricer impede normal brain function?

seriously.
I and my SL2 almost were killed three times today by reckless drivers at the wheel of riced out cars. The first was an Acura Integra with an exhaust pipe that I could could have sworn a watermelon would have fit in. It almost touched the ground. the next two times i was the victim of a crazed Mazda rx8, cleverly adorned with a spoiler, rice taillights, a large fart pipe and a sunroof, from which two sets of hands with middle fingers raised protruded.
these ricer boys were by far the most dangerous, swerving across all lanes of traffic and onto the wrong side of the road in the face of oncoming traffic. I called this one in to California highway patrol along with the licence number. they put out a bulletin, and i hope they got him. we don't need crazies like that on our streets.

it's been a wild day, and I'm glad that I and my Saturn escaped without a scratch.

Does driving a ricer impede normal brain function?

I vote yes, but unfortunately, bad drivers come in all cars, regardless of rice status. Seems to me that people are in too much of a hurry, and have no regard for the other drivers on the road.

Default Re: Does driving a ricer impede normal brain function?

I think ricers are just retards with cars. They don't think of how their actions will affect other people. Yes stupid people drive all cars, but ricers are namely a "moron behind the wheel". They try to show-off with their riced out piece of garbage. They act worse than a darn 2-year old. I say throw 'em in the beans and cook 'em, LOL.

BTW, you can try phoning their tags to the state troopers office or some law enforcement, saying they are driving nuts. Sometimes the officers like these tips and will actually try to bust these people. Just tell them they are street racing or something.

Officers aim to pull ricers, because when they do, they will always be slapped with multiple tickets. Now I was in the car with my friend (he has a modified 92 SC), the cop let him go for speeding because he was honest with the officer and told him he wasn't doing it to be stupid, but he was trying to solve a problem with his car, and even told the officer that he does race his car, but only at the track, because he wouldn't want to kill someone on the road. I think he even told the cop "by no means am I a ricer." The cop even commented on liking his 92 SC and thought it was awesome that someone did that to a Saturn. He even invited the officer to watch him race at the track, LOL. I think at first the cop thought he was a ricer-wannabe.

Default Re: Does driving a ricer impede normal brain function?

I live in Tulsa Oklahoma. I risk everything the second I leave the driveway. It's not just ricers (although probably the stoopidest of them all), but also older people and certain females. I don't mean to be sexist, I really don't. Even my girlfirend agrees. She was hit from behind in her Porsche 928 by some 16 year old ditzy girl in a late 80s Truck (one example). Then there are the rich people (not always old) who, for some reason, believe that they own the road. Everything is at thier command and the second you tick them off, they fly off the handle and do something dumb or irrational. they can usually be found speeding or pulling sudden lane changes without the signal on.

In Oklahoma, driving isn't just a privilage. It's an artistic battle dance, so watch your toes.

Default Re: Does driving a ricer impede normal brain function?

Seems like I find or experience the craziest drivers when I'm on my motorcycle. I get the most insane people and cars trying to race me or tailgate me. Tailgaters are the worse, especially when your in a lane, with someone in front of you, and you can't possible go any FASTER!!!.
I agree with the person who said people are too much of a hurry. Not to offend any females if there are any on here, but I've noticed that teenage girls have become the new ROAD WARRIORS, I can't count the time I've almost been taken out by them, on my Bike, and in my Car.

I love it when people live up to stereotypes, saves time.
he's got it all- the krylon interior, stickers, painted drums, ELECTRIC SUPERCHARGER, body kit ready to go, the chin pubes and the 'look at how cool I am' stance w/ his homeboy. OMG. I really hope he's not a saturnfan. probably hangs out at saturnspot.com

I love how he brags about the electric supercharger, bodykit, CAI, and exhaust etc that he bought for that blazingly fast SOHC.

The ricers around here aren't too bad. Like 944 said, it seems to be the rich that are the worst around here. As if owning (being WAY in debt) a $100,000 car makes them better. Mercedes and BMW seem to be the worst. I think the car isolates them from the road TOO well - it makes them feel detached and nothing can happen.

An autotragic SOHC, to be exact. (Sigh.) I'm sure those pedals make the car go waaaaay faster.

Is that "electric supercharger" one of those Turbonator's?! LOL!!!

Seriously though, Ricers aren't the only road hazards out there. Here are a few examples of tragedies waiting to happen:

1) Owners of cars that come with no turn signals option standard
2) The 50 mph speeder on the fast lane
3) The "Brake Happy" driver (who has no one in front of them for 100 miles)
4) and of course your daily "Speed Racers"

I know most of you can add more and more to this list but these are the one's that annoy me the most.

How can "no turn signals" even be considered an option? That's illegal where I am.

If you drive a big rig (18 wheeler) it's pretty much anyone with less then 3 axle's thats a problem. I remember riding with my dad once, some moron wouldn't let him over and just kept "floating" between the front of the truck and the back of the trailer. The rest of the people don't know the meaning of "wide right hand turn."

Oops, didn't word it right. Basically I meant people who have a hard time using their signals for lane changing. It really annoys the hell out of me. I've always wanted to ask people that do that whether they were too cheap to buy the "turn signal" option in their cars since it doesn't look like it came standard.

My fiero doesnt have turn signals.
But thats because I had it towed without the key and we had to break the steering lock. Too bad its my daily driver.

Ah yes, floaters. They see you are trying to change to the lane they're on and instead of yielding or speeding past you they pace you. You speed up, they speed up;You slow down, they slow down.
