After dealing with a range of unhappy Los Angeles area traffic situations lately, I have to wonder which came first, the asshole or the pickup truck.
What I’m actually asking is, are people who are natural born assholes (by easy and clear definition) predisposed to buy pickup trucks, or does the act of buying a pickup truck convert an otherwise normal person into a raging asshole?
And just to ramp up the discussion, I myself have experiential experience * that indicates to me that the incidence level of asshole created traffic danger events is (at least) multiplied by a factor of 10 when the observed pickup truck is red. Moreover, for some reason you can double that when it’s also one of the dual rear wheel variety.
* Your milage may vary
