When a passenger gives constant advice or orders to the person behind the wheel. The HenpeckedHusband's wife or mother-in-law will do this a LOT. The LogicalExtreme is a passenger who actually grabs for car controls (usually the wheel). In RealLife, there ''are'' legal consequences for this.[[note]]Usually, the person who grabs the controls assumes responsibility for the vehicle, which means they are to blame if the vehicle crashes, but have not broken the law if they take over from a suddenly incapacitated driver.[[/note]]
