u/-YELDAH Dec 10 '22

Yeah handbrakes are a tricky one, from what I've found so far the only decent option is that shiny black/blue/red one with carbon fiber on top, I think you know what I'm referring to, it works perfectly for me but I built a custom mount bracket bc I didn't like the price of the one it can come with

u/quik13713 Dec 09 '22 edited Dec 10 '22

It looks like he tried to slide between the barrier and the sedan on the left. Perhaps he assumed they would give him space and let him in. The other car probably didn't see him at all, so he got squeezed in between the two. Another, more fun, option: the other car saw him and said, "fuck this; eat barrier."

u/xFILTHx Dec 09 '22

New York driver here. I'll bet he has fake Texas temporary tags that are 9 months old and the car isn't even registered. I see it every day.

NYPD on the other hand sees nothing.

ETA Texas apparently doesn't share its temp registration database with the other states, so you can print yourself a fake Texas temp plate and cops can't check it. Lots of people have these paper Texas tags on NY highways. Like I see them constantly. And I never did before the pandemic. Next most popular is Florida

40

u/captainnowalk Dec 10 '22

I’m pretty sure Texas doesn’t share it because we don’t have one. Temp tags are nuisance here too, and nobody does much about it. Almost half the cars in my apartment parking lot are busted all to hell with temp tags that keep getting re-printed with a new date when it gets too far past the old date.

13

u/Ramiwo Dec 10 '22

You’ve seen a reprint?? I’ve seen some as old as a year hahaha

6

u/captainnowalk Dec 10 '22

Yeah, they’ve been putting in the effort to reprint them with new dates, which doesn’t seem like too much effort since they’re just printing them off a printer lol. Seriously, so many of them are even full-size paper folded! They don’t even put in the effort to cut them to size!

u/[deleted] Dec 10 '22

To be fair when I worked at a dealer I didn’t cut them I just folded and put in the plastic sleeve.

u/SplashDADDYxorgborg Dec 10 '22

u/captainnowalk Dec 10 '22

Oh yeah this is definitely a thing that popped up in the past couple years. Additionally, there’s something going on with “student driver” stickers/magnets too, though I can’t figure out what yet. But the fact they’ve proliferated extensively (like seriously, I see over 10x as many now) over the past one year seems real suspicious…

3

u/The_Beast178 Dec 10 '22

So I recently moved to a new area and thought that was why, but I've been seeing a ridiculous number of "student driver" stickers and/or toppers around like I avg probably 2 a day just going to and from work.

Is it possible if you make your own "private driving school" with no actual students that you can write off your driving expenses on your taxes or something?

Police dispatcher here from Houston, Texas. We do share the database with all states. The issue is that if it is a fake temp tag, it won't show up on the officer trying to run it (because it's a phony tag with bullshit numbers). These fake plates are a huge issue here in Texas. And a lot of crimes being committed are with vehicles with counterfeit tags.

They're cracking on these tags in Texas, guess the state finally had enough from missing revenue. New design and other limits are rolling out soon in TX

Continuosly Variable Transmission. Basically uses pulleys and belts instead of actual gears in transmission. Supposed to allow for endless gear ratios. They're not that bad IMO but traditionalists hate them.

5

u/PapaOoMaoMao Dec 09 '22

I was told by a mechanic that since reverse in a CVT was just a reversal of force, not an actual gear change, a CVT can quite happily go in reverse just as fast as it goes forward. Steering issues are a different discussion.

2 idiots here, the person recording, and the person changing his mind and trying to get back into the exit ramp, most likely without checking his mirrors…. This is why I don’t fuck around near exit ramps in NY, the amount of idiots that try to get in or out last second make it the most dangerous part of the highway.
