Dumb Things People Did to their Own Cars

Here are stories, mostly from mechanics, who had to witness the aftermath of people's horrible automobile decisions. Some out of negligence, some from people who wanted their car to look cool and put form over function, and others who were just plain stupid. People are pretty ignorant about their own automobiles. Here are tumblr users getting schooled on physics and car safety, and here are people who parked like jerks.

If we did something this stupid on camera, we'd probably try to act casual and save face too. The real question is whether or not most of us would do something this stupid. Or maybe he's just in shock and glad that he's alive.

It's hard to think of interactions more awkward than having to tell the guy hitting your car that he's... doing that. The 1,000 yard stare this guy is giving off while in the drivers seat of a car is freakin' unsettling. The creator of the video says cops were called and the guy was arrested for impaired driving.

People That Parked Their Cars Like Blatant Jerks

Some people really don't care about inconveniencing other folks around them at all. These drivers couldn't have made more of a mess in the parking lot with their horrendous parking jobs. All we're missing on these is the people that parked the cars reacting to the fallout from their careless acts of recklessness.

Tumblr Users Get Schooled On Physics and Car Safety

The general idea here is whether or not older cars are "better" than newer ones when it comes to accidents. Sure, an older sturdy car won't fall apart as easily in an accident. What it will do is transfer all the kinetic energy of a crash directly into your body. Sometimes people on the internet are wrong about stuff, like this discussion about the facts of plague and veganism

Tumblr user explains why newer cars are safer than old ones.

This footage shows a Tulsa police officer texting moments before a gnarly crash. Apparently the police officer was taken tot the hospital with minor injuries, and the other driver wasn't injured. All in all, definitely not the kind of stunt you should be pulling as a police officer.

A video caught by Tesla's on board camera appears to have caught a woman in the act of keying a car. As long as people insist on keying cars, it's nice to have some cars around that are ready to catch them in the criminal, trashy act.
