Lovin’ it. We need more plug ins….
I’ll see your prius and raise you a lincoln town car I saw at the DC DMV inspection station today – http://i.imgur.com/eB5wB.jpg
That’s a Caddy.
Self-righteousness negates the positives of do-gooders.
South Park did an episode nailing this about Prius owners
“The essence of the conception of righteousness, therefore, is to afford an outlet for sadism by cloaking cruelty as justice.”
God, Prius owners are horrendous, carbon footprint of these are many times that of a normal vehicle. In 5 years, we will realize these cars werent a great idea , minus the public awareness aspect of needing an alternative .
This is wrong. A prius gets much better miles to the gallon than most cars. It’s true though that they are a “vehicle” for self riteousness.
Studies have shown Prius drivers drive more than the others in similar circumstances. Plus, since this one’s from Virginia, chances are a large part of the purchase motivation was access to HOV lanes with a single driver.
you are incorrect, carbon footprint of producing a hybrid vehicle is app. 4 times that of a normal vehicle. Those batteries have take a worldwide trip before they even get installed, not to mention we don’t truly know what to do with them at end of life cycle. If you placed a huge Prius battery directly on a concrete road, it would eventually burn a hole in it.
Yes, I’d like to have some sources for all these random comments so I can read it for myself.
Do you make stuff up?
Pedal that thing faster!!
I agree with the comments above on both sides of the argument. Its great to have a fuel efficient car, but if you drive a ton, then there is no benefit. In my opinion its better to keep your not-as-efficient used car and drive it less.
But if you drive more, and have to drive more, it’s best to have a vechcile that outputs less carbon. I only drive my Pruis when I’m not on my bike.
That license plate is simply rude, and says “I’m a Prius driver, AND an asshole.”
