Passenger; I don't have a license and I don't want one. Better yet, I'd rather ride a bike or walk.

Driver...unless my husband is the driver for a couple of reasons...he's a really good driver AND he's a really critical passenger. :)

I hate driving, I hate having to focus for long periods of time. I like sleeping in the passenger seat to much.

Since I'm single I drive almost all the time. I will always choose to be a passenger if given the opportunity.

Passenger! Ideally the third passenger. This way the second passenger can help keep the driver awake while I sleep.

I prefer to drive because it cuts down on arguing on how to get there. My husband has no sense of direction and taking directions from his wife isn't man cool. Plus he doesn't listen well

I hate driving. The people around me never seem to able to, so to avoid purposely running other people off the road, I usually choose to not drive if possible.

Depends on the destination. If driving to a heavy populated area with lots of city car traffic I'm a better navigator aka passenger than driver. I can spot the street signs easier I guess.

I wish I could do that. When other people drive I'm gripping the handle on the door so hard my knuckles turn white. I do close my eyes a lot, in a panic though.

Don't mind driving but my mom & dad used to have to drive me around as a baby to get me to stfu & think it's effected me as an adult b/c I love being driven around. It's soothing.

Driving and I would pay a $5 gas tax if it meant we could get some better roads than what we have. I'm tired of tolls being in the news!!!

Tolls are a tax. Why aren't they fixing your roads with it would be the question.

They are in the news because they want to build a tunnel with tolls. It's a poor city struggling to stay afloat. It's ridiculous, but VA wants to cut the gas tax and toll it. It's ridiculous.

Driver. I have serious control issues. I drove 12 hours straight instead of letting someone else drive, I get nervous and panicky when other people drive. This is the only major argument me and hubby have.

It depends, my husband usually drives when we're going somewhere together and that's fine but if I'm going somewhere with my mother in law I'll drive because her driving annoys me, she goes too slow and doesn't pay attention to signs.

I hate putting people out since I can't drive. I can't go anywhere unless I find someone to take me. I live somewhere where there's no busline, so I have to depend on someone. everything is so inconvenient. it sucks

I also hate the feeling of "using" friends by asking for rides. In the last 2 places I've lived, I found an apartment within easy walking distance of where I worked - the last time, directly across the street. That made shopping problematic but at least getting to work was never an issue.

Great; make it not only political, but about laziness. I don't suppose there are ANY other possibilities. And of course you'll have to include the (currently) 30% of Republicans who rather be a passenger in your analysis, to be fair. Compare to 39% of Democrats, & you make a sweeping generalization?

susanr Colorado
03/01/13 11:42 am

The most you can truthfully say is that (currently) of SOH users, 9% more Democrats than Republicans prefer to be a passenger, that close to 2/3 of each prefer to drive, but nothing about reasons. Does that REALLY sound like you can draw the conclusion that Democrats are lazier?

It's always intriguing when there are differences in demographic groups, and 9% is pushing the boundary between "eh" and "interesting" (for me anyway) but you can't ignore other factors, known & unknown. And y'all know how I feel about stereotyping & generalizations...

I'll race my husband for the drivers seat. He's an awful driver. So much so that my family has begged me to be the one to teach my kids how to drive.
