I pretty much hate riding instead of driving. I like to think I keep my cool and don't betray my distress over someone's lack of attention or skill. I must not be alone, since AOL Autos has offered up five useful tips for when you must occupy a seat other than the driver's chair. The suggestions are good ones, in fact, it's stuff I already do, but not everyone has my exquisitely tuned sense of decorum. Mainly, what it boils down to is chill out when you're a passenger in someone else's car. Being polite, even to the point of holding your tongue, is the key to wheeled bliss. Sometimes its hard, though, when the driver does that gasbrakegasbrakegasgasbrakegas thing that makes me feel like I'm gonna hurl.
