I stare straight ahead. I feel real self-concious when driving, because once on the way to a concert a friend and I were bothered by this creep in the van next to us...he was pressing his nipple up against the window and making kissy faces, it was too gross.

And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmas time

I make eye contact occasionally with the driver of the car standing in front of me (if i'm stopping at a red light)
and, using the mirror for looking back, (what's that called in English? the mirror in the middle of the car used for checking what's behind you) i make occasional eye contact with the person who's driving the car behind me.

We just glance at each other - by far nothing as creepy as some of you have described.

Though once, as i was having a final driving test to get my driver's license, i pulled over at a red light and the driver of the car standing behind me (when you do a final test, there are two other people in the back of the car that evaluate you, along with the instructor who gave you driving lessons at the co-driver seat. so, as there were 3 people in the car beside me, he knew it was my final test) smiled and gave me the thumbs up. I smiled back at him.

Why do they call it a rear-view mirror if you canīt see the ass of the person driving behind you?

I was in my said automobile yesterday listening to "Desire". That is a must sing song when listening to it in a car (or elsewhere for that matter). I was singing at the top of my lungs and the music was MUCH louder than I. Anyhew, I got to a stop light and I continued to sing like the dork I am. I was in the middle lane and 2 cars pulled up on either side of me. Yep, they watched me sing my heart out. When I looked they were both laughing pretty hard. Good times.

I think the reason many people have a mean look in their eye when driving is simply because driving is so damn dangerous.

Even on routine in-town trips, it's scary how many close shaves you can have, no matter how careful you are being. And when you're late for an appointment, well it's a recipe for rage.

Of course part of it is probably just machismo. Like you wouldn't meet some people's eyes walking down the street - it's just the way people are.

its because a person's car is a place where they feel powerful

i always like to give a lil nod, or smile to my fellow Suzuki drivers. its like we're in a lil club. A ssecret lil cool car club.
Although most people that drive my car tend to be guys my age in baseball caps. Not a problem of course

P platers suck

lmao manda @ p-platers. I do awful things to them when they ask for it.

I wonder how many secret societies there are with model cars? One of my old friends used to drive a Kombi. They had a special wave and everything. WRX drives, I found the other day also have one. As do XR's. The 6's tend to get snubbed though
