looking at other people's cars. mostly kids. strap those things down and get tinted windows so they can't make funny faces at me.

Definitely, kids. When the kids act up in the back seat, I pull over to settle them down. Seat belts were a great addition to vehicles. They keep the kids separated.

I don't even answer my cell phone when I'm driving. I need to stay focused on the road so I can dodge the morons yacking on theirs since they're so busy talking they're clueless to the fact there are other vehicles on the road.

Oh, and that red thing at an intersection? It's called a stoplight. You were so busy with your cell phone conversation you failed to notice it as you blasted through the intersection at 45 mph. Good thing I saw you and slammed on the brakes because you sure didn't see me, or even slow down.

I don't get how some folks can drive around with their little spoiled dog sitting on their lap looking out the window....but then again, I like my dogs to be real dogs.

Dodging the many hundreds of people who can drive a car, but can't seem to figure out how turn signals work, where the lane lines are, etc. Maybe that's because they are too distracted by their cell phones, stuffed dogs, and children.

Agreed DIST!! I don't own a cell phone and my car is a "no phone zone" anyway so it would have to be the grands. Or the constant requests to turn up the music.Not happening.

It is painfully obvious that not one of today's respondents have children. For, the obvious answer is:

Children!
