Well that could be a thing of the past with our top witty comebacks for dealing with pernickety passengers.

Lines to shut that back-seat driver up:

  • I’ve just been thinking through all the advice you've given. Mostly about how I couldn't really care either way!
  • How do you like back-seat walking? 
  • Ever had to sleep on the hard shoulder?
  • Do they not sell mouth clamps at the I'm-always-right shop?
  • Your driving advice is about as much use as a chocolate teapot.
