Reading through the comments is like the most ironic mess of “Triggered” and I’m just sitting here like
it’ll no longer offer a discount to members of the National Rifle Association
The person who invents an easy way to scrub the data before it’s sent off is going to make a mint. A ublock origin for your car and phone.
makes me want to drive on a warm summer night in an open car with a bunch of gorgeous people, look at fireflies, forget all else
Thank you so much for this. Mr Drake was an under-appreciated genius.
Neutral: What If Everyone Is Bad
A gas tax is regressive; low-income drivers have less fuel-efficient cars, so it hits their bottom line harder.
Since hybrid cars use less gas, should Electric companies charge a higher rate on electricity used to charge cars in the garage? (assume they can tell specifically what goes to charging a car)
Yes, because places in cities with easy access to public transit are usually very expensive. The working poor often have to drive to an end-of-line and then take a train in. Or, they live somewhere with bad/no public transit and have to drive anyway.
Yeah, how about no.
So Trump tries lowering everyone’s income tax, but then raises other taxes to make up the deficit hes causing.
I’m assuming that some Americans out there support this and are short-sighted enough that they’ve forgotten the SUV-pocalypse of the early aughts, when Detroit was puking out pushrod-powered, ladder-framed monstrosities with covered wagon-era suspensions. We couldn’t get enough of those back then, either. I can…
I’m not sure why we continue to look for rational justification for anything Trump does, when it’s clear that his only motivation is sheer spite for the brown guy who previously held the office.
Bigger vehicles tend to be safer for the occupants, and less safe for anyone else. If anything, you improve safety by limiting the amount of giant vehicles on the road.
Having the car repossessed is really just the beginning of the spiral, though. Afterwards it is sold at auction for a tiny fraction of what the debtor owes. That amount is subtracted from the outstanding balance and the creditor sues the broke-dick for the difference. They can (will) owe a shit load of money on a car…
Or the vehicle breaks down, they cant afford to fix it so the dealership says we can just take it in on trade as is and roll the negative equity into a different vehicle. I know this first hand having been there done that and saw family and friends do the same thing.
So, they’re not really financing cars, they’re renting them out, payments optional?
With those kinds of numbers its just renting cars to people.
So I wonder who the first person will be to comment “Just don’t get bad credit and make your payments on time, otherwise you deserve it?” With a lot of self gratifying head nodding starring it.
