Here is a “new one” that is apparently “a thing.” Drivers of diesel pickup trucks modify their engines in order to purposefully emit large amounts of black smoke into the air when they rev their engines. They say part of the fun in doing so is to be able to “roll coal” onto pedestrians, tailgaters and hybrid car drivers that annoy them. Some say it’s also just a great way to blow off some steam.
The Rollin Coal movement has a lot of followers online with dozens of Facebook pages, Instagram and Tumbler accounts dedicated to showing off their smoke stacks. Check out some of these photos, memes and videos from the Rollin’ Coal sub culture community and let us know your reaction!
