Pedobear Miata pays his penance

Last week's photo set of a Pedobear-adorned Miata driving under an 18-wheeler drew the ire of many (including us) for its sheer stupidity. The driver of the Miata agrees it was a dumb choice and has a message for all of you.

We're going to keep the driver anonymous because, though it was unconscionably dangerous, he's been banned from Miata boards and Miata events for setting a bad example and seems to recognize what he's done.

"To be honest, it was completely stupid and reckless," he said. "God was definitely looking out for me and I've promised myself no more bullshit. I have an awesome life and a lot to live for and I have taken my life for granted. I'm not anymore."

Which is why we forced him to pay his penance by writing "I will not drive under 18-wheelers" on his Miata 25 times in exchange for removing the photo that shows his face from our first post. Jalopnik justice is swift, but fair, and often inspired by episodes of The Simpsons.
