Per my husband I am. for the past few years he has relegated me to the backseat. Lol which I prefer because I’m not well & at 5’1”, it’s easy 2 lie down across the back seat with my pillow & blanket

Yep. My husband always drives. I try not to be annoying but sometimes I point things out. He says it’s okay.

Always afraid something is going to happen. Or that my husband drives like a mad man I say(but not really.just a paranoid passenger.)

I have difficulty trusting most people's driving. There are a few I feel very comfortable with but the majority scare me and I do tend to backseat drive..

I say nothing.But twice I did. First time she didn't know where she was going & I tried to give her directions.In a car with her twice.Never again.2nd time, different lady,same problem.Someone else insisted on giving directions&we went back and forth on the same road. I finally piped up using a map.

I don't drive and I'd rather not distract the driver.

I try very much not to be. I’m always the passenger. I have instructed my husband upon occasion. He says thank you.

I always drive. When I don't drive, I don't usually tell others how to drive.

I'm the navigator. I sit in the front seat.

I sit in the front passenger seat -- and some of my interventions are vital safety reminders. My husband may differ about the percentages.
