I frequently drive with an adult passenger who weighs about 100 pounds. The car is designed so the Passenger Airbag Off
light turns on for a passenger under about 100 pounds, which the car assumes is a child. This isn't a defect. It's definitely by design.
I'm concerned about safety with the airbag off. What to do? [more inside]

I got pulled over by a cop. I wasn't speeding, nor was I driving erratically.
P.S - My passenger was standing up with his torso out of the sunroof. [more inside]

I've been driving a car for about a decade now, and it's suddenly occurred to me that I'm now completely paranoid about anyone else driving me somewhere. I'm constantly checking the mirrors while they drive, and getting stressed because I think they should be braking sooner or driving in a different lane. It even happens when I catch a bus. Has anyone else experienced this? How did you get over it?
