I'm curious about ritual superstitions, particularly the ones involving driving--holding your breath when going past a graveyard, for example. What are more of them?

Do they vary by age group? Region? And what are the supposed consequences for *not* participating in the ritual, if any are specified?
Bonus points if anyone knows where any of these actually come from.
