If you drive a truck, you need to seriously consider your life choices.

Haha, I’m just kidding. You can drive around whatever you want. But in all seriousness, I’m pretty irked by the number of people who drive unnecessarily large vehicles on the road.

Now if you drive around a truck for work or have one around for hauling things around every once in a while, this does not pertain to you. The people I’m talking to are the ones who drive trucks on a daily basis as part of their commute or going out their daily tasks otherwise.

What is even the point of driving around such a large vehicle? It’s not practical and it’s not fuel-efficient. There are spaces in some parking lots that you are literally banned from using and you have to be extra careful while driving down the street, no matter how narrow it is. All this and you still get ~15 miles to the gallon.

Personal things aside, trucks are almost so large to the point of being inconsiderate. Think of the people around you. The people behind you can’t see in front of you and the people in front of you can’t see behind you. People also make the argument that it’s more safe for when you get into a car accident. But what about the other guy? If you get into an accident with a smaller car, chances are your truck will decimate the other car, significantly reducing the driver’s chances of survival.

I don’t know. Just seems like overcompensation to me.

But get a truck if you want, it’s not like I can stop you.
