My family likes to tease me about what they call ‘meerkat driving’ in that I drive sitting bolt upright with only my lower back actually touching the seat. I thought I did it only when other people were in the car because I want to be more alert but yesterday I noticed that I do it even when I’m alone.
I made an active attempt to relax back into the seat but I was so uncomfortable that I went back to sitting more upright almost immediately. It feels like I’m not being an active driver when I lean back into the seat.
So what about you, Groupthink? Do you lean back when you drive?
