4 Things It’s Only Acceptable To Do In Cars


Although how much cooler would it be if you could honk at people walking slow in front of you?

It’s only natural that cars, which should be thought of here as a physical environment rather than a transportation device, should offer experiences that are unique to their realms. For one, our cars are private spaces where we can get away from others while still getting around. In your car you can eat without getting weird looks (provided the windows are tinted), have a one-man or woman concert (although the same tint rule applies), or partake in personal psychotherapy sessions alone or with a companion.

On the other hand, you can’t (or shouldn’t) do things like drink, text, exercise, or do anything that distracts from the main task of driving. But the reverse is also true: there are some things you can do in a car that you can’t do in the rest of day-to-day life.

Drivetribe decided to act those out because, well, Jethro Bovingdon is probably busy on vacation. As much as it would be nice to be able to honk at people who get in your way, it would probably turn some heads. Not so in a car, where one can vent impatience at traffic, the moron who just cut them off, or unload the contents of their bad day onto the rest of the road goers in the surrounding area. However, the rest of Drivetribe’s “Four Things Only Acceptable In Cars,” are pretty ridiculous. A human "car wash" in place of a shower would be cool, but we can think of better alternatives. Perhaps ordering at drive-throughs or practicing heel-toe downshifts outside of the car? Food for thought.
