They made the cars for the GMs to use as police patrols on the roads. But people started asking for them to be released so anyone could use them. So when cars were released, they were available to every player who wanted to use them, with certain restrictions (police paintjob, beacons, accesories, could only be used by TMP staff). The excuse was that cars could be used for convoy escort duties. But they became trolls' weapon of choice. Currently, cars can be used to do jobs, by hauling caravans. Or as convoy escort vehicles, or simply to explore the map driving something other than a truck if you want a bit of a change.

 

You think that cars are a bad thing now, with 110 Km/h limit? Imagine back then, when they could do 250+ Km/h...

I'm not 100% sure why the cars have been added but remember they're on single player and there's not just cars in single player either.  Anyway....when non-trolling people use them it's a nice view to see as it adds variety other than seeing truck after truck time and time again.

 

As for the same car ramming you twice you can report them in-game by using the tab menu screen and clicking on the persons name and then report.  Also there is the option of doing a web report where you can do that here: https://truckersmp.com/reports

This subject has been brought up many, many times before, and I can see your concern. However, as far as I know, cars had been added to add some variety to the world, instead of only being able to drive a truck.

 

When you get rammed by a car, it's best to either go to a spot on the map where not too many people go, or just leave the server and join one without cars.

 

The newly launched Arcade servers could also help against damage on your loads, as the whole server is NCZ, like the old EU4 server used to be.

 

I personally don't have a problem with cars, and don't see why this topic has to be brought up again and again.

The subject on the Scout keeps coming up because of the following.

 

1. People completely blow the problem of cars way out of proportion

2. Some people are deluded enough to believe that removing the cars would somehow solve the problem of trolls, without thinking that they'll just go back to using trucks, which are comparatively worse.

 

I won't deny that cars are often used by trolls as a weapon, but removing the car is the same as game DRM; it only harms the people who use it legitimately. Remove the cars and all that will happen is the troll will simply go back to using a truck, which is worse because they can then hook up a trailer and start blocking entire roads with it.

Totally agree with you except the speed limit. Yes, they stuck at 110 km/h but the acceleration time is lower than trucks. A sudden acceleration thing is a good weapon for trolls.

Indeed. 

It's a shame that cars are trying to ram trucks, but luckily there are GMs. Of course you can always record your screen so that you have video material if you are rammed.
