Backseat driving has never made anyone a better driver. Ever. Because the purpose of backseat driving isn’t to make someone a better driver: it’s to complain, criticize, and express fear. An easy and consequence-free thing to do when you are not in the driver’s seat.
Being in the driver’s seat, however, would mean that you are in control and responsible. Thus, subject to backseat driving.
So what pain is worse: being in the driver’s seat and getting criticized or letting someone else have control and all you can do is backseat drive…
…which has never made anyone a better driver.
