    Upset Rolling coal

    My wife and I were stopped at a light on our way home on a main drag today and a F350 dually diesel pulls up next to us making a racket. It was almost 50 degrees today so I had my window rolled down but I rolled it back up because the noise that truck was making was so loud and annoying. The light turns green and he proceeds to smoke out (roll coal) the entire intersection. I couldn't see a damn thing and my wife started coughing (good thing I rolled up the window!). It took a good 20 seconds for things to clear out so we could proceed through the intersection. The next light is only about a quarter mile down the road and it's red. This time I am stopped 2 cars behind him. At this point I am fuming and lately my fuse has been pretty short when it comes to inconsiderate stunts like this . I got out of my car (dumb I know) and knock on his passenger side window. He rolls down the rear window, obviously confused about what is going on, rolls it back up and rolls down the passenger side window. I shout "Could you please not do that again?" (I have to yell because the truck is so damn loud). The light turns green and I start walking back to my car and he blows a little more smoke as he leaves the light. Surprisingly, no one behind me is honking at me to get the hell out of the way probably because they can't see the light is green anyway.

    Did I overreact? Did I underreact? Should I have dragged him out of his vehicle and wrapped his face around his exhaust pipe for a taste of his own medicine? Should I have sat there and accepted it like a typical 21st century non-confrontational little bish? Maybe I wouldn't have reacted the way I did if I was alone since my wife coughing is what really set off my temporary psychosis. If I had this happen while riding my bike to work I don't know what I would have done.

    Anyone else seeing this trend or had this happen to them lately?

    The only thing I would have done if I were you is to take down his license plate, take pics or record him doing the stunt and (most importantly) the disruption caused by the after effects of the smoke cloud (your wife coughing in the background would have been great and your narration), and turned it in to the police.

    The fact that you exited your vehicle in the street among traffic (moving or not) was unwise and unsafe. I see you realize that. Fighting fire with fire does not put the fire out.

    Sorry you and your wife had to experience that.

    I live in a city that has EXTREMELY strict police. Most people complain about it but the fact is, they keep trouble under control here.

    It's obvious that he parks his penis in the garage.

    Yeah I agree jumping out and confronting him is just asking for it to get out of hand. I'm the same way I have a hard time controlling myself with inconciderate morans. But jumping out and confronting him could result in a some bad stuff. He could have a gun or be some whack job and run you down.

    I moves from So. Cal to Colorado a year or so ago.
    And in San Diego this rolling coal was pretty rare.
    Out here in Colorado its pretty popular with the
    young redneck crowd. They buy big lifted diesal trucks and install stacks. Which is exhaust pipes that stick out of the back of the bed behind the cab. To simulate an eighteen wheeler. Apparently its the cool thing to do with the rednecks. And they do something to the motors to blow thicker black smoke than normal diesel trucks.

    I have to think that the F350 dually had a big ballsack hanging down from the rear axle.

    A knife to the tires usually stops them from doing that again.

    Shoulda asked him when was the last time he used that bigass truck for anything more than driving around town.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    And it wouldn't do any good anyway. He'd just figure "Well I'm stuck in this intersection with flat tires. I'll just roll some coal til the cops show up!"

    Yeah, responding to these guy's with violence or violent acts just feeds their skewed vision of the world and validates their actions in their own feeble minds. No sense in getting locked up over some small minded person. Log their licence plate, take photos or video if you can and pass it on to the police. I know in AZ. there are several citations that can be issued, one being misusing resources.

    Well, you pretty much drove a stake through the heart of this thread.

    Yes, and you're right.
    Cutting valve stems is pretty easy though. Not that I'd advocate that either.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    I wonder if I can get some of these for my Prius?!? I just got a hitch so I can put on a bike rack and a big brass ballsack, stacks 'd be the icing on the cake!

    I drive an F250 diesel but it is not lifted nor will it blow that much smoke even if I tried. It will smoke a small amount if I have to get into it to maybe pass someone on a hill while towing the boat.

    I hate seeing dumb stuff like this as well. He obviously had a chip turned up.

    It takes a big-ass spud to block off a diesel exhaust. A softball might work better. If he's rolling coal on demand he's monkeying with the chip. If it's happening without him messing with it, it's got problems and won't be running too much longer.

    Mine's not chipped and I'm not even sure it would do it if I tried.
    But if you close your eyes it becomes so easy to see

    Re: Rolling coal

    I work with a bunch of rednecks that drool over diesel trucks that can "roll coal". Seems to me that blowing smoke out of their tailpipe gives rednecks some sort of rush that only a person of well below average intelligence can understand
