* Averted in ''Literature/TheSilkworm''. Protagonist Cormoran strike lets his pretty assistant drive on the Motorway because of his prosthetic lower leg; when they encounter a dangerous collision close up, he tries to emergeny-coach her. It turns out that [[HypercompetentSidekick Robin has taken advanced driving classes]] and handles the danger far better than he ever could have.
