Tape Fixes Everything

Tape Fixes Everything

This Jetta driver apparently subscribes to the theory that there is nothing that a bit of tape cannot fix.

Unfortunately, when it comes to his automobile's airflow meter, the rules just don't apply. He figured there was an air leak and literally taped it up which probably wasn't the best way to go about things, right?

Perhaps the owner of this car watches too much race car driving to know what is normal for the general road or maybe they're just lazy and/or dumb.

There's really not much else that we need to say about this image as it really speaks for itself. Does it make you feel a little nervous to learn that there could be an untold number of cars on the road with tires like these, every time you leave your garage?

What is it with people and their ridiculous approach to tires?! Like, even a novice understands the basic principles when it comes to tires, right?
