Do you drive one way when you are alone...

and another way when your family is in the car? Meaning do you speed and have some kind of road rage when you are alone and then you are like Driving Miss Daisy when your family is in the car?

  • Lol, you got me to a Tee ; ). I do go faster and generally take more risks driving when I am in the car alone. When my son is in the car with me, I do the speed limit, and watch a lot closer. But, whether it is the whole family or just me, I always buckle up.

  • No, I'm pretty consistent. Except that when the kids are in the car I have more distractions!

  • Yes, I find I drive more to the speed limit with the kids in the car, even if I'm running late. If I'm alone, I may drive faster if I have to be somewhere.

  • I am a lot more careful in the way i drive when my son is in the car. When he isnt I will go over the speed limit but not more than 5 or 10. My son is precious cargo and I drive the best I can when he is with me

  • Nope, I'm agressive/defensive all the time whether they are in the car or not.
