A few months ago I posted my feelings regarding dodge commercials, that they promote reckless driving, and for the most part, I was shut down.
I said they should be taken off the air.

The video below shows what happens when gullible young men try to emulate these commercials.
The first took place in the inland empire one night.
The second is a dodge commercial running on television.

You still think there is no correlation?

The third video really sums it up.
This is what these young fool see, and try to emulate.

You might also want to talk to the people in Northridge that have to put up with this reckless driving practically on a nightly basis.

No worse than all the movies showing greater and greater violence, guns used constantly and we wonder why people buy Dodge vehicles and ... kill others at schools, Vegas and more.

We are impacted by everything we see and hear that appears popular or cool or fun or ...... Dodge is just one of the examples and they are endless.


Oh doing cookies in a parking lot is fun, right.

Also, you need to know what you're doing to drive like they do in those commercials since you can't get the car loose without turning off the ESC and TC , so it's not like non-car people drive them like that since most people don't even know what ESC and TC are.

Humans have been racing things since we domesticated horses back 2,000 years ago. Why would you think it it would be different today?
You could give people the slowest cars ever made and they will still try to race.

So true, traction control and other devices make it hard to do... donuts (Oops said cookies earlier and some do use that term). It isn't easy and most who do it a lot use special worn tires to allow them to keep doing it.
