North Carolina is banning the "Carolina Squat" after petition with 70k signatures
For those of you that haven't heard of this latest example of redneck stupidity....this is when a person lowers the rear suspension on their vehicle and raises the front like this:




The problem is that the drivers often can't see what's in front of them over the hood.


quote:

More than 70,000 people with no sense of humor or appreciation for the outrageous have signed a petition to ban the technique, and now the NC House has passed a bill.


quote:

For some reason, squatted trucks all have the same exhaust note, and it’s "1978 Chrysler Cordoba with cracked exhaust manifolds, played through Limp Bizkit's stage amplifiers."


quote:

House Bill 692 says: "A private passenger automobile shall not be modified or altered by elevating more than three inches from the manufacturer's specified height in the front and lowering the automobile more than two inches from the specified height in the rear." Well, you can do that, but you can't drive such a thing on a public road. And if you do, and you're written up for it three times, you can lose your license for a year.

This should catch on all over.

It’s the absolute douchiest thing a guy can do.

And that’s a tough spot to take between knuckle tats, flat bills, chin strap beards, and neck beards but sure enough some turd figured out exactly how to take the ultimate douche spot

They do seem like a safety issue. The driver is looking at the sky, the truck’s headlights aren’t aimed correctly when the front end is pointing up, etc.

Same mods, but I think those are more off road focused. It's raked like the Baja trucks.

You might be thinking of the Tennessee Tilt.

The ought to ban it on the grounds that it is moronic and any person who would drive a truck that looks like it is squatting to piss can't be much.

looks dumb AF but, i don't really car what people do with their own vehicle.

i do laugh at the ones who purposely lower their rides and drive on Louisiana roads.

I'd only heard of Cali lean which has the front higher than the back and Texas tilt which has the back higher than the front.

They shouldn't ban them, but anyone driving like that, don't mind if they get ticketed.

Agreed. These things should never pass inspections due to unsafe equipment.

Surely they could already write them up for improper headlights or similar. I doubt any of those vehicles have them adjusted properly.

I had to read up on it. Apparently it started by people wanting to replicate Baja racing rigs. The suspension is designed is to take rough beatings on the trail. They sag a bit (although it is not intended). These losers took it to a new level.
