You want to have fun on the road?
When I was a jackass high school kid, I used to borrow my parents' fairly fast car and play my friends' verson of "chicken". On a fairly busy 2 lane street, I'd drive very slow, maybe 20 under the limit, straddling the lane and the shoulder. Then, when the person behind me would inevitably get impatient and try to pass, I'd slam on the gas right when they were alongside me. Thankfully, I eventually did that to a car that had a cop car right behind it, and got pulled over. I pretended that I was going so slowly on the right because I thought I might have a flat tire, and didn't know what to do when the other car started passing me. The cop had me get out to check for a flat."How will I know if it's flat?""It'll be flat.""Oh, right."I got off without even a warning, but I never played chicken again. At least I was capable of learning lessons.

I've heard tell of someone having a sleeping passenger and pulling up behind a semi (the cab) being towed backwards, hitting the brakes, and screaming.
That's amazing. One time, on the way home from a weekend camping trip (a complete shitshow), my buddies and I were all asleep in the car as the poor driver was trying to get us all home. The guy in the middle of the back sat straight up all of a sudden and screamed, "LOOK OUT!!!" He immediately slumped back in his seat and continued whatever dream he had been having, while the rest of us all hyperventilated for a few minutes and made sure we weren't having heart attacks before relaxing again.
