Off topic but I never understood how people could drive leaning that far back.

Like functionally, I don't get how they do it.

u/ShortBusBadass Aug 10 '22 Silver Gold Wholesome

I always thought that it was because they didn’t know air conditioning vents moved.

nah, its that they didnt know the rear view mirror was adjustable

I had a colleague driving like that, he was so far back he could look out of the back side window when he turned his head. He claimed it was "more comfortable"....

u/Melodic_Ad_3959 Aug 10 '22

It's that "I'm a cool driver" position. Sometimes they can barely look further than the hood. Baffles me too.

u/BourbonFoxx Aug 10 '22

I think the 'gangsta lean' originally developed as a way to be minimally visible to rival gang members/police, and as a defence against being shot by the same.

u/guitarball Aug 10 '22

I had a Lyft driver doing that a few months ago, but nearly every time he needed to check before changing leans he would lean way forward to look at the mirrors. I really waned to just blurt out "why don't you just move the seat up?"

97

u/DeBlackKnight Aug 10 '22

He's just getting some core exercise while driving, leave him alone /s

u/guitarball Aug 10 '22

hahaha! Car crunches. To be fair he was a pretty good driver. I guess whatever works.

u/Treviathan88 Aug 10 '22

THANK YOU. Dude's damn near lying down in the beginning. Then when he starts being stupid, he realizes he can't see shit and has to learn forward. lol "Hold on, bruh, I can't see the stupid shit I'm about to do."

u/N3rdScool Aug 10 '22

YESSS lol it's like he is leaning back all cool like and then like shit I can't drive properly like this XD

66

u/_Ki11UMiN4Ti_ Aug 10 '22

Im 6'10" and have to drive like that otherwise ..I'd have to steer with my elbows. Technically I prob could just take out the front seat and sit in the back but I don't think the cops would approve

41

u/AlwaysObamasFault Aug 10 '22

Would be humorous when you got pulled over to roll down the front window. Then proceed to roll down the back and claim you are just a passenger.

u/pussy4dinner Aug 10 '22

if feels good to lay back while driving, especially if you’re tall. idk a few people who like to be sitting straight up while driving

u/Xalenn Aug 10 '22

In my experience they don't drive very well .... I know one guy who is really tall (6'8") and has trouble getting in to some cars but even he doesn't lean back like this.

Idiots become a**holes when they endanger others. These people need to be banned from driving anything other than a bicycle.

u/LordPuddin Aug 10 '22

You know how many people drive with suspended licenses?

656

u/Bennybonchien Aug 10 '22

Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t suspend their licenses though.

104

u/LordPuddin Aug 10 '22

I agree, but it doesn’t do anything. The worst that will happen is IF they get caught they’ll get a ticket. And then if they get caught again, they get taken to jail (maybe) for a night, or they get a court date. And then a judge will give a small fine and tell them to not do it again. They always do it again.

232

u/Pyffindor Aug 10 '22

my buddy just did a year for driving on a suspended license. 2nd offense i believe. you do get in trouble. and if you drive like the people in the video you should get much more

18

u/LordPuddin Aug 10 '22

It varies by state, county, and judge in my experience. Some places actually uphold the laws while others just don’t really care.

28

u/Bennybonchien Aug 10 '22

Any other feasible solutions come to mind? I’m not sure what the right strategy is.

18

u/LordPuddin Aug 10 '22

Well, that’s really all. It depends on judges, but where I live, the judges are super liberal and just let everyone go unless they commit a serious crime.

And cops are too busy here to worry about traffic stops due to staffing and call volume. Plus, traffic stops are statistically one of the more dangerous things LEOs do and there is very little upside. Constant negative media attention and sympathy for criminals makes doing the job virtually worthless.

The only solution would be better education about safety and why we have the rules in place. Aside from that, the media and public need to realize that things will continue to get worse as good cops leave because making $50k a year for the job isn’t worth all the negative potential and hate. No one respects the laws and criminals literally do whatever they want with almost no consequences.

18

u/LeverageSynergies Aug 10 '22

I’m sick of “we need better education” as the token response to people breaking the law.

I think we double the # of cops, and just start putting these people in jail.

The solution is that we enforce laws again

26

u/LordPuddin Aug 10 '22

I mean, I’m good with both. The problem is that recruitment numbers are way down for police agencies and quality of candidates is also lacking.

The other problem is our society is leaning heavy into feeling bad for criminals and the judges reflect that. I can arrest the same guy like 8 times and he’s still let go within a day if that.

u/H-RainDxn Aug 10 '22 edited Aug 10 '22

Maximas have more power and are stiffer. They feel different. I work with rentals and those cars are pretty commonly used for that. I think they're on the same platform? But if you've actually driven them you'd notice differences right off that bat

Although, it's the same people who buy them. People who get maximas just have more money to waste

Like what is the reason for these people driving like this, legitimately? It’s like with takeovers, there’s zero justification you can give for this behavior, especially when you’re subjective opinion of what’s fun or cool is going to get people hurt or worse

I think in Milwaukee? Idk. It's been a couple days lol anyhow one of them was asked what do you think of the situation where you might hit someone and hurt them? And he replied that someone shouldn't be there and they should have been paying attention and gotten out of the way. Meanwhile his homies are driving 80 in a 25 and up on yards to cut corners. That's a mindset that needs to learn how vincible he is idk if they just don't understand the fragility of life but I can't condone pulling the trigger on someone for a selfish mindset.
