Overly loud vehicles make their drivers look stupid, not cool

It seems like it's becoming more and more of a trend these days for people to make their cars loud enough to be heard half a mile away or so. I really don't understand why, especially considering most of them end up sounding like popcorn machines or toy cars. Most newer cars don't even naturally have that "roar" to them, so you're basically trying to squeeze water from a stone when you try to make them sound like an older car.

Motorcycles are especially bad, as it honestly just sounds like ear-splitting flatulence, and the only good use for that is when those bands of motorcycle riders went to military funerals and revved their motors to drown out the hateful chants of Westboro Baptist Church. Other than that, it's just a grating way of saying "hey, look at me" that doesn't end up making you look cool so much as it just makes you a nuisance. Don't act surprised if someone gives you a dirty look or yells "shut up" at you or something like that, cause you really deserve it if you go around revving your overly-loud noise bike just for the heck of it.

Obviously emergency vehicles are an exception, but that's so you can hear them coming and get out of the way. If your vehicle sounds cool by nature, you don't need to make them super loud to make yourself look cool. In the process of doing that second thing, you just end up making yourself into a nuisance.

EDIT: Welp, this certainly blew up more than I thought it would. Thanks for the awards and karma, and thanks for bringing up how noise can be a safety feature out on the open road when it comes to motorcycles (something I didn't exactly consider before posting). I may have come off as a bit heavy-handed in how I stated certain things here, so for that part I apologize if anyone was put off by it. I currently work at a grocery store, though, and constantly hearing these loud vehicles in the parking lot drives me crazy and has made me hate the phenomenon all the more.

Anyone else wish we weren't heading towards an E vehicle boom/global warming catastrophe so that we can enjoy V8's with peace in mind?

I sometimes envy people (especially American) from the 60's till the late 80's. They had it lucky with big block V8's making spectacular noises and beautiful exteriors. One of my dream cars is the 68 Camaro. But unfortunately, it is very hard to get my hands on this beauty, being born in somewhere outside the states. Hell even today's Muscle cars are pretty dope, with Ford and Dodge having a horsepower race with their GT's and SRT's. But soon enough this trend will die out, soon the electric motor with most battery life will be the gold standard for Muscle cars.

I wish I was born in the 70's at least with a decently wealthy family so I can drive American Muscle cars without worrying about consequences.

These days everything worries me, to import taxes, fuel consumption, reliability (looking at you FCA), styling (ugly Camaro) and prices.

Spotify ads with vehicle sounds should be illegal

Why is it that every single time I’m driving, I get that Wendy’s Spotify ad that has the sound of screeching brakes in it? There’s also a McDonalds ad that sounds like I just hit something extremely large with my car and broke everything. Why is that even allowed?? It scares the shit out of me every time and makes me frantically check my mirrors like I’m about to be in an accident.

Does anyone else hate war and violence in general on a fundamental level, but still find the vehicles, machinery, and logistics of war to be just the coolest sh*t?

In short, like I'm sure most people reading this, I am of the opinion that war is bad. So much can be said about the human suffering that is caused by war, and while it's inevitability can be debated until the cows come home, I will never not be humbled by the utter awfulness that it has historically put people through and caused people to do to each other. Even on a personal level I am a pacifist, and always seek to make friends first and always challenge my negative opinions of and gestures towards others.

However...

God damn dude tanks, guns, warships, jet fighters, WWII planes, artillery, large scale battles, guerilla warfare, bombs, it's all just the coolest shit ever... knowing that it is all designed specifically to cause death and destruction sometimes plays on my mind... but I dunno man, it's all just so goddamn cool.

Anyone else feel this way?

Edit: It looks like I need to point out that when I say "anyone else feel this way?" I don't literally think I am the only person alive with this opinion, I, like most people who ask this question, am just using that question as a framing device for my post to start discussions.

YSK: As the driver of a motor vehicle, you are not being β€œnice” or β€œhelpful” when you disregard conventional traffic flow to let someone go, you are creating traffic at best and causing accidents at worst.

Why YSK: Because conventional traffic rules and β€œbest-practices” are there for a reason. They reduce congestion on the road and more importantly they allow, to some degree, predictability of other drivers.

What triggered me to post this today? It’s snowing/rainy today where I live. I was on my way to pick up some lunch, and the genius in front of me decided to come to a dead stop (from the road’s speed limit) in the middle of an intersection while we had a green light, to let the guy waiting on the other side of the intersection take his left hand turn. WTF? I almost rear-ended the guy.

Don’t be that guy/girl. It’s only a matter of time before you cause an accident.

Of course, sometimes it can be nice to stop if traffic is already slow and you are letting someone get in. I am obviously talking about the egregious scenarios like above.

TL;DR Don’t stop traffic when you have right of way to let someone take their turn 30 seconds earlier. You are doing more harm than good.
