The video of a van purposely swerving to splash pedestrians has gone viral. At the end of the video, the company name is shown on the screen. The video was seen by over a million people and the driver was fired.

    One small glimmer of pleasure I get from those guys. The way they run those diesels is destroying the engine.

    The society we live in today is lost, not all but many are narcissistic megalomaniacs, it's me me me, products of late babyboomers in the 80's that spoiled their kids (the me generation) and now their kids are the (me me me generation), these are the type of people that are more fixated on videotaping someone about to die so that they can post it an be "famous" and get a lot of hits than HELPING THE PERSON, SAVING THEIR LIFE.

    I saw one video where these jerks were following a dump truck whose dump was rising while going down the hiway, what did they do, speed up and warn him???? NO they start filming saying "watch this, this guy is going to get creamed when he hits the bridge"

    Explains a lot with out current political situation. Me me me me me me what's in for me??? screw you, it's me me me me.

    ^ yeah, seems pretty accurate... unfortunately.

    There is a disturbing video on youtube of a redneck pickup owner rolling coal directly into the open cab window of a passed out buddy's truck while she's likely sleeping one off.
    One of the comments was "congrats moron... you just gave your buddy lung cancer!". Again... some thought it was a laugh riot.

    If someone rolls coal in front of me they get reported to the Ontario government. They have a convenient form on the website. There's little satisfaction though, since you never find out if the offender even got a phone call.

    As a diesel fan, it's frustrating to see people wreck the public's opinion of it with a big plume of dirty sooty smoke.

    When I'm in the work van, it's a rolling poster. You can't get much number than that.

    Please....stop characterizing "1980s" kids as all complete self satisfying jerks. I happen to be born in that era, and the school of hard knocks was my teacher, social media has wrecked more than just we 30somethings.

    As a diesel fan and also a wood-burner smoke is the enemy, but there are always those who thinkotherwise. It's funny how at the local truck/tractor pulls it's not usually the ink black smoke guy who gets a full pull.

    And my neighbor didn't even know I burned wood until he saw the stacks I had in the back yard.
