    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.

    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.

    Shoulda asked him when was the last time he used that bigass truck for anything more than driving around town.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    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.

    Yes, and you're right.
    Cutting valve stems is pretty easy though. Not that I'd advocate that either.

    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.

    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

    What I hate is riding my road bike and these guys pass me and "roll coal." I never knew what it was called until this thread.

    I'm going to guess this thing had an exhaust tip you could fit your head inside. Saw plenty of those in TX.

    These are the stacks I was talking about earlier. Here in Colorado all the young rednecks are doing it. And the term "Rolling Coal" is a slang term they use. The first time I heard it was a couple months ago. I picked my 13 year old nephew up from football practice. And a truck like that rolled by with the stacks spewing forth black smoke. My nephew says "cool he's rolling coal". I laughed asked he's what? "He's rolling coal that's what it's called" Me "whatever kid", he's a jerk"

    That young redneck must be a mere beginner as he has not made it to "Brass Knutsack" status yet. I am sure it wont be too long tho, he is showing a degree of numbskullishness almost beyond redemption...

    If living in the USA I wouldnt have done what you did - because of people like this:

    Does anyone conceal carry when they ride?

    which could lead into something like this:

    Police: Man said enraged motorist chased him 15 miles - CNN.com



    In locations where guns are not a god given right then maybe getting out and having a word is a great plan.

    I live in an area where diesel trucks are extremely popular with the 16-30 age group (males and females, believe it or not). It reminds me of when I was in high school and everyone had to have a Honda Civic that had some fluorescent colored wheels to contrast the black rattle-can paint job and spoiler. All these kids think that because their truck blows smoke it has incredible power, and that a rattle-can paintjob on the body and wheels makes a truck with 250k miles from the late 80s worth 10k bucks, body rust, bald tires, mechanical problems and all.

    You don't see this going on in the Los Angeles area. There are plenty of macho diesel trucks like that around, too but I don't see any of them with those tall exhaust dumps. I wounder if it's illegal here?

    Some guy just got killed over texting in a theater in FL -- during the previews.

    Texting during previews should only be a broken limb... rustling popcorn bags during the main feature is death...

    I have an idea. Let's start a fight club with the coal rollers. A fight club where one half of the members don't know they are in a fight club. I can see it now...

    Cyclist: POW!

    Coal rolling choad licker: "Ow wtf bro?!"

    Cyclist: "Oh I'm sorry didn't you get my fight club invitation?"

    Coal rolling salad tosser: "What?? No!"

    Cyclist: "Oh ok let me send you another..." WHAM! Name:  punch.gif
