Oregon Legislators Want to Ban All Aftermarket Parts, Including Tires

Oregonís speaker of the house has introduced legislation that would ban any and all aftermarket parts from Oregonís vehicles. This new legislation goes beyond the typical big-brother stuff the car enthusiast community repeatedly has to deal with. Oregon actually wants to regulate which tires youíll be allowed to put on your car.

SEMA speculates that the state would most likely require that any tire fitted to a vehicle have a rolling resistance equal or less than the tires that came on the car from the factory, because that would help the carís gas mileage. Never mind that less rolling resistance = less traction = more dangerous for everyone on the road. This law is just an example of stupid, unthinking politicians who feel like they need to pander to green voters by needlessly limiting the freedoms of everyone.

I had a friend in college who drove a rear-wheel drive sedan. Being in New England, he fitted his car with snow tires in the winter, and switched to performance summer tires for warmer months. Both of these sets of tires were much safer than the all-season tires that came on his car, but neither would be allowed under Oregon's proposed laws.

OK Oregon, hereís the deal. Iíll give you the same ultimatum I gave my girlfriend when she mentioned wanting to buy a Prius. If you do this, I will take the catalytic converter off of my car and turn my car into a soot spewing demon. Luckily for me, I live in Florida, where my car wonít need to be emissions tested to pass inspection. Also, I live right around the corner from USP, which makes this convenient part just for what Iíve been threatening. I can't threaten to drive right in front of the entire state of Oregon whenever it has its windows open, like I did with the girlfreind, but I'll be sure to take a video and email the lawmakers who voted for the bill.

Now, you might be thinking that this threat really doesnít have any weight. Iím just one driver, how could I possibly nullify the amount of pollution that will be saved when an entire state reduces its emissions. Itís ridiculously egocentric to think that my actions would have ANY effect towards offsetting Oregonís emission reductions. Almost as egocentric as believing that one Stateís silly law could turn back the tide of global warming.
I don't think anyone on here's from Oregon, but we can all agree that if this passes it's only a matter of time before jackass lawmakers in other states try something equally as stupid. So spread the word before poor Oregoners are stuck dealing with this ridiculous law.

The problem is that moron tree hugging asshats think that every car should go no faster then 55 mph and they convince dipshit politicians that 'going green' is the way to win elections.

i had some WOMAN ask me, "if the speed limit is a maximum of 70mph, why build cars that can go faster then that?"

i was kinda stumped. but just told her people should have the choice and be able to make their own decision to go faster then the posted speed limits.

Wow....Besides the fact that most people don't know that Oregon exists, wtf is wrong with people's priorities? Is this really the most important thing for state rep's to be paying attention to? Instead of other state rep's (or any1 of influence for that matter) saying "This is dumb and trivial shit" the bandwagon will be jumped on. I wonder if job creation, reduction in corruption etc r a lil more important?

The problem seems to be that when we elect these morons and there doesn't seem to be any fail-safe. Every politician runs on the same platform, how they r going to be for the people blah blah f*ckin blah. They set a list of goals that they will address. Why aren't they simply fired and sent of into obscurity if they make no attempt to do what they said they were going to in a particular amount of time? Besides that they go of on tangents like this that have nothing to do with anything. What happens in any other job (other than politics apparently) when u don't do or suck @ ur job? U get fired, pretty simple. I just don't get it anymore....
