Why can't I sit in the car during the car wash anymore ?

I used to love sitting in the car and watching the suds wash away especially if I'm not cleaning the inside why does some dirty car washer gotta jump in and enjoy the ride

Well, depending on the type of conveyor system the carwash is using to move the car through the washing building will affect whether or not they want the owner of the vehicle in the car or an employee......there are different types of conveyor systems at car washes....one type of system requires the vehicle operator to be able to almost PERFECTLY align the tire with the carrier and drive it into the carrier in order for the car to be moved through.....I knew a guy that owned a gas station/car wash that had that type of system, and the vehicle owners were the ones sitting in the car while it washed....problem with that was the fact that NOT ALL PEOPLE KNOW THEIR VEHICLE DIMENSIONS so they would ocassionally run up and over the conveyor mechanism and either damage the car wash OR their vehicle.....so to ensure the safety of their own equipment AND to prevent lawsuits, a lot of places just remove the idiot drivers from the equation......8)

Depends on the type of wash it is ... Automatic washes are typically very user friendly, and simple to use ... you drive in to position and are prompted when to drive out. Problem is .. not everyone can follow directions.

With the washes that require you to line up on a treadle, again .. some people just can't seem to do it and end up doing some serious damage to the wash equipment in their attempts to get themselves lined up.

My guess is, THIS car wash you are referring to has suffered the consequence of drivers doing damage to his equipment, therefore has decided to provide an employee of his own to make sure the wash is performed without incident.

Well, then that shouldn't be quiet right considering if you leave all of your personal items and belongings in the car while he sits in there during the wash. Just saying he could be rummaging through your stuff and probably getting a few things or money if you leave it. And you really should ask why he is sitting in your car while it's being washed and that you instead would much obliged to sit in it instead of him....

The car wash people are searching the cars for pot and other illegal drugs. They know you can't call the police.
