  • Good going CHP. Hope the eco hit runner is captured soon

  • A recent study found that the worst drivers on planet earth drive prius’. Apparently is quite difficult to drive while patting yourself on the back.

    Conserving Fuel is not a crime you F-ing Idiots!

    • Not it’s not but you not letting your mother up for air is.

    • funny how media peer pressure etc work. 15 years ago big gas guzzling SUV drivers were on the defensive, but the bully media has turned the tables and now trucks are bigger than ever and hybrid drivers are more often the butt of jokes.

      Do the math. You really arent saving fuel and you are extracting rare earth minerals, nickel which is an extremely toxic mining process and consuming oil. So hybrids are twice more resource intensive than regular xars. They should be way more efficient too, you break 50mpg ueah right rofl. Turbo diesel vw’s get wayyy better gas mileage.

      If they wanted cars to be efficient they would all be designed to aerodynamic standards and not because you want something more futuristic and sporty.

      The prius assembly line has had more deaths and suicides than any other car produced ever. They work 30+ hours sometimes to keep up production. Then thet come out with some new design and have to retool half the factory.

      Your hybrid is a f#@$ing joke!

  • Someone lost their life to an idiot and all I see is small minded talk about cars and trucks. You all should be ashamed of yourselves. Also if you researched it BIG RIG TRUCKS hold the most deaths last year killing 745 big rig drivers, not the Prius. Also if you google top 10 deadliest cars in America the Prius isn’t even on that list.
