Almost All Of Us Heard This One
Did you even have a childhood if your parents didn’t tell you the police would pull them over if you turned the interior light in the car on while they were driving? This is hands down one of the biggest lies our parents told us, and it’s safe to say it continues to this day because many of us are still learning it isn’t illegal in most places.
Our parents weren’t on a power trip when they forbid us from turning the light on to search for our Hot Wheels or Polly Pocket that leapt out of our clumsy hands. The light can distract drivers and even be dangerous if the glare is strong enough. Sometimes it’s easier to fib that the cops will come after you rather than debate the danger with children.
