Why do some diesel pickup truck guys do a Coal Smoke launch when the light goes green. I've seen this a few times, not real often and the few times it's been a customized bro truck each instance, lifted w/ with over sized pipe(s). Makes me slap my a/c on recirc real quick to prevent pulling the black cloud into my car.

I think diesel's are great but these sort of shenanigans just annoy people.

It's to express their "manhood", but bros are probably the most insecure of them.

I don't see it too often in this part of CA - CA now requires diesels to be smogged in certain parts of the state. Tampering with an emissions control system is a federal offense, DOTs aren't focused on pickups for code enforcement, they go after big rigs instead.

They just passed the "Anti-Rolling Coal" law here in Colorado. The fine is only $100.
I wish they would confiscate the vehicle.
If you want to be stupid, that's one thing. But when it affects other people...

The fines should be steeper(like in the $1000s) and/or a visit to the state smog referee and the truck being listed as a gross polluter.

Ask VW how they feel. They got hit with effectively a $21 billion dollar fine for extra diesel pollution.
Some people in this country love pollution. By extension, they must love cancer as well. Its a very strange obsession.

Fixed it for ya.

I used to "run" with a crowd that had some of these bros. I made fun of them every chance I got. I like diesel pickups just fine and all, but these "bros" have really ruined them for me. I don't see this being any different than loud exhaust (guilty in the past), loud music, or anything else that just screams, "HEY! HEY! Look at ME!".

(Some) Motorcycle riders are the worst of the bunch. The loud exhaust is one thing, but they have to constantly rev it while rolling through a parking lot with lots of people present. Eh, I'm just old I guess.

They're giving us normal diesel pickup/light/medium truck owners a bad name, and unfortunately they'll be making ALL diesels pass emission tests again. Rolling coal is a waste of fuel anyway, need more air (twins) to turn all that carbon into usable power.

Whenever I hear some of the rolling coal people complain about fuel being too expensive I laugh. So fuel is too much, but its still cheap enough to blow it out the exhaust just for making smoke and showing everyone what a tough guy you are?

Yep, agreed - it's unburned fuel in the air.

Maybe those idiots didn't get any attention as a child.... so now is their chance to get the desired attention.

I guess I'm too old to find this significant. When I was a kid, every dump truck, delivery truck, and garbage truck "rolled coal".

We're not an emissions State, and even here, I can tell you that dirty diesel engines are about as common as the mastodon compared to 20 years ago.

Coal rollers are just good at making themselves a noticeable nemesis, I guess.

Lots of them up here. Every time they take off, they stomp the throttle to make a cloud of smoke and noise. These bro truck owners specifically tune them to maximize smoke thinking it looks cool. Quite annoying if you ask me.
