Backseat drivin' the driver crazy

Backseat drivers are those passengers who repeatedly make comments about the skills and performance of the person behind the wheel. Statements may be relatively innocuous: “Can you see that the traffic is slowing down up ahead?” Or they can be hostile and mean: “Watch what you’re doing! You’re driving like a #@$% idiot!” Whatever the content, backseat driving is unappreciated and causes tension in the car to accelerate at breakneck speed.
