Craziest thing you've seen people do while driving

(Let's keep this Foo-ey, please )


I use to commute with my neighbor and she would always put her make up on in the car. I use to make fun of her (I don't wear makeup) and actually would TRY to make line her face with the liquid eyeliner or make her blot her face with the mascara. I would step on the brakes hard, start off quick, I'd turn real sharp....NOTHING made her mess it up!! She would just turn around and smirk at me. Two years of commuting together and not once did I ever succeed. Yep she was pretty good at it.

I was riding in my buddy's Jeep on the way to the golf course at about 7:00 am one day and we pulled up next to a BMW at a light. My buddy started laughing, and I looked over and the guy driving was ah, er, let's just say he wasn't holding onto the gearshift. He blew through the light as soon as he heard us cracking up....

I saw a woman eating a salad (with a fork) and putting on her makeup...at once. No idea how.

A friend once called me while very exasperated. She had just driven by a man who was looking at a magazine and strokin' it while in rush hour traffic.

Sometimes I play harmonica in my car...

One time I was on the bus on the way home and looked down into the pickup truck beside us at the light. Both passenger and driver had open Bud cans, and were drinkin' away, nonchalantly! When the light changed, I got a look at the plates: TEXAS. Unfortunately, I guess they were unaware they were in NC....

Here in Austin I've seen people while driving:

1: Watching iPod videos clutched on the steering wheel.
2: Laptop barely braced on the steering wheel, apparently with a cell internet card, playing World of Warcraft.
3: Smoking a bong or some type of water pipe.
4: Drinking some type of drink via a straw... but the straw was inserted in a nostril.

The other morning on the way to work I was behind a lady swerving on the freeway. I went around her and looked over-not only was she doing her hair, but she was also on the phone.

One evening last summer I passed a car in which the young female passenger was performing a sexual act on the young male driver.

A few weeks ago, I was at busy four way stop. There was a car to my right which had arrived at the intersection before me so I waited for them to go through and as they proceeded through, I could see that the driver was brushing her teeth with a Sonicare toothbrush. I wonder what happens to the toothpaste...

Craziest I've seen was a guy shaving with an electric razor while reading a newspaper draped over his steering wheel. The vanity mirror light was on, too, so I'd imagine he was dividing his attention equally between the stocks or sports numbers and his ugly mug. I'm not sure he can get a good shave while reading.

Reading, reading while eating hamburger, putting on makeup, texting, playing air guitar, conducting imaginary orchestra.

I've seen a guy driving with one hand on the wheel and the other hand holding a camcorder up to his face (maybe he wanted proof of what a great driver he is).

I saw a guy holding (not stroking) his *ahem*, but he was parked, not driving--just kinda chillin' with his willy.

While stopped at an intersection, an old guy in the lane to my right started backing up when his lane got the green light. He went about 3' before his wife said something to him. By the time he went forward, the light had turned red again.

I think mlts22's World of Warcraft sighting tops them all, though.

Reviewing a spreadsheet in the left lane in an Echo not realizing that he/she/it is doing about 40mph on a parkway/highway...in the left lane. In Europe, you get fined for that (not using the left as a passing lane), and I wish it were the case here as well.

I saw a guy driving a miata while playing the flute going down the highway. When I say playing the flute I dont mean anything sexual. He was actually playing a musical instrument with both hands

Drivers around here don't do strange things while driving, they just drive horribly. Any time I'm on the road here I'm literally the only person I see not breaking at least one traffic law.
