  2. Sing to the song on the radio
  3. Sing to the song on the radio of the car beside you
  4. Make up your own song to sing
  5. Put on a Barry Manilow tape/CD/8-track (it is suggested that you try everything else on this list before you try this one!)
  6. Play the drums on the steering wheel along with the song
  7. Lay the seat back down until it is horizontal and do sit-ups
  8. Use your windscreen washer until it runs out of water

  11. Drive backwards and forwards in the space you have until your car runs out of petrol
  12. Jump out of your car and shout "Everbody slow down! You're freaking me out!" (It's best to look really upset for this one)
  13. Get out of your car, walk to the car in front of you and ask the driver if you can join them. Regardless of their response, get in the car and start talking about the most annoying subject you can think of until they kick you out. Repeat this proces with every car in front of yours. When you reach the car at the front of the line, kick the driver out and drive off
  14. Ask the driver of each car if they want their windscreen washed for $5. If they do, reach in and turn on their windscreen wipers
