As we pointed out earlier today, some people just don’t get our twisted, often expensive and obsessive fascination with cars. We needed a label for such people, and I think we’ve found our answer.
That’s right, “walkers.” Not only is this the name for the mindless flesh eating zombies of The Walking Dead, but it also references the non-car person’s habits to mindlessly transport themselves without enjoying the experience of driving. It’s also a reference to Jalopnik/Oppositelock real-life meme Alissa Walker of Gizmodo, of ‘Ban Cars’ fame and misfortune.
