Simply disgusting! The moronic hatefulness of these macho turds is hard to fathom. Seriously, just how immature and stupid do you have to be to spend thousands of dollars to make your vehicle waste fuel? And belching that filth intentionally at others seems downright criminal.

Do some states not bother to legislate emission standards?

Forget about climate for a minute, all benzene ring compounds ( like those spewed by these exhausts) cause cancer and several other serious health problems:
CDC on Benzene:
Long-term health effects of exposure to benzene
The major effect of benzene from long-term exposure is on the blood. (Long-term exposure means exposure of a year or more.) Benzene causes harmful effects on the bone marrow and can cause a decrease in red blood cells, leading to anemia. It can also cause excessive bleeding and can affect the immune system, increasing the chance for infection.
Some women who breathed high levels of benzene for many months had irregular menstrual periods and a decrease in the size of their ovaries. It is not known whether benzene exposure affects the developing fetus in pregnant women or fertility in men.
Animal studies have shown low birth weights, delayed bone formation, and bone marrow damage when pregnant animals breathed benzene.
The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has determined that benzene causes cancer in humans. Long-term exposure to high levels of benzene in the air can cause leukemia, cancer of the blood-forming organs.
How you can protect yourself, and what to do if you are exposed to benzene
First, if the benzene was released into the air, get fresh air by leaving the area where the benzene was released. Moving to an area with fresh air is a good way to reduce the possibility of death from exposure to benzene in the air.
If the benzene release was outside, move away from the area where the benzene was released.
If the benzene release was indoors, get out of the building.
If you are near a release of benzene, emergency coordinators may tell you to either evacuate the area or to “shelter in place” inside a building to avoid being exposed to the chemical. For more information on evacuation during a chemical emergency, see “Facts About Evacuation.” For more information on sheltering in place during a chemical emergency, see “Facts About Sheltering in Place.”
If you think you may have been exposed to benzene, you should remove your clothing, rapidly wash your entire body with soap and water, and get medical care as quickly as possible.
Removing your clothing
Quickly take off clothing that may have benzene on it. Any clothing that has to be pulled over the head should be cut off the body instead of pulled over the head.
If you are helping other people remove their clothing, try to avoid touching any contaminated areas, and remove the clothing as quickly as possible.
Washing yourself
As quickly as possible, wash any benzene from your skin with large amounts of soap and water. Washing with soap and water will help protect people from any chemicals on their bodies.
If your eyes are burning or your vision is blurred, rinse your eyes with plain water for 10 to 15 minutes. If you wear contacts, remove them after washing your hands and put them with the contaminated clothing. Do not put the contacts back in your eyes (even if they are not disposable contacts). If you wear eyeglasses, wash them with soap and water. You can put your eyeglasses back on after you wash them.
Disposing of your clothes
After you have washed yourself, place your clothing inside a plastic bag. Avoid touching contaminated areas of the clothing. If you can’t avoid touching contaminated areas, or you aren’t sure where the contaminated areas are, wear rubber gloves or put the clothing in the bag using tongs, tool handles, sticks, or similar objects. Anything that touches the contaminated clothing should also be placed in the bag.
Seal the bag, and then seal that bag inside another plastic bag. Disposing of your clothing in this way will help protect you and other people from any chemicals that might be on your clothes.
When the local or state health department or emergency personnel arrive, tell them what you did with your clothes. The health department or emergency personnel will arrange for further disposal. Do not handle the plastic bags yourself.
For more information about cleaning your body and disposing of your clothes after a chemical release, see “Chemical Agents: Facts About Personal Cleaning and Disposal of Contaminated Clothing.”
If you think your water supply may have benzene in it, drink bottled water until you are sure your water supply is safe.
If someone has swallowed benzene, do not try to make them vomit or give them fluids to drink. Also, if you are sure the person has swallowed benzene, do not attempt CPR. Performing CPR on someone who has swallowed benzene may cause them to vomit. The vomit could be sucked into their lungs and damage their lungs.
Seek medical attention right away. Dial 911 and explain what has happened.
How benzene poisoning is treated
Benzene poisoning is treated with supportive medical care in a hospital setting. No specific antidote exists for benzene poisoning. The most important thing is for victims to seek medical treatment as soon as possible.

This “rolling coal” B.S. is one of the stupidest, most asinine, irresponsible, immature things I’ve seen in… ever. Grow up, people.

This is about revenge. They seek revenge against the rest of the world for having been born so stupid.

re: #2 Randall Gross

Thanks!

The last link Included in my commentary was a PDF file that mentioned the negative health effects of carbon dioxide.

Like I said “I wouldn’t bring my lungs anywhere near one of those black smokers”

Maybe I should have gone into a bit more detail about the negative health effects though.

What a complete and utter waste of $5000

Couldn’t agree more.

You cannot even open a bottle of Benzene in an uncontrolled environment without breaking the law. Old decaying and badly built underground gas storage tanks have poisoned many a water supply and sickened thousands. Killed quite a few people too, but that is always harder to prove. The Oil and Gas industry get away with murder every day and pay up and continue to screw us here in Pennsylvania and you too, where ever you are. Add this seemingly indestructible compound to the mix. Then shoot some tons of Frack Acid into the mix in the right areas. Ummmmm! Drink up!

These are the same types who brag about cranking the AC with the doors ajar, opening fridge/freezer doors, and turning every light in the house on during the one hour Earth Day (RedStaters proudly posting their defiance).

All I could think was…you’re paying for it, e.g., you’re hurting yourself, just like these guys.

I believe every one of those points you made were suggested by Rush Limbaugh, years ago. Whenever the government says there’s a problem, True Patriots do everything they can to make it worse.

Well, of course it was. Sheesh.

What’s wrong with people ?
