These Are The Most Annoying “Backseat Driver” Behavior

Memorial Day weekend is almost here, which means many will be kicking off their summer vacations, with lots of families loading up the car for a family road trip. But it turns out having the whole family in the car can be a hassle, especially when everyone thinks they are an expert behind the wheel.

A new survey finds:

  • 73% of Americans say at least one member of their family is a “backseat driver.”
  • 30% of Americans identify their teen as the biggest backseat driver in the family.
  • 23% say it’s their spouse or partner.
  • And backseat driving can get super annoying to the person behind the wheel.
  • Among the most annoying backseat driving behavior:
    • Giving unsolicited advice on when you should turn (49%)
    • Complaining that you're driving too slowly (37%)
    • White-knuckling the dashboard (36%)
    • Complaining that you're driving too fast (31%)
    • Yelling "watch out!" at the sight of pedestrians / animals on the road (26%)
