When you think you have seen it all on the road, some people share stories that just blow your mind away. I have already seen my fair share of unnerving car shenanigans in the past few months, so I got me wondering: What is the weirdest, stupidest, dangerous things people do in cars... especially when they think no one is looking.

If you have your own stories of the things you have seen on the road, let us now in the comments below.

1. Marriage proposals...

Yes, this is really one that happens more than you think. Nowadays, lots of young YouTubers and social-media wizards hire out or buy their wives-to-be expensive rides and then give them a ring, all wrapped up in flowers and firework. Not everyone can afford that, some can barely just afford the shiny rock in metal in the first place. We are guessing that 1 in 20 people who proposed in cars last year, in the UK, did it out of sheer panic and nerves.

2. Make up...

This is one I really don't get. I wear a lot of make-up, as a lot of you will know - but the idea of poking yourself in the eye when you go over a speed bump makes me gag. We all live in a fast-paced world now, we run out of time or get up late as the 'alarm didn't go off', funny that. This is one of the most common on this list, here's a tip for you ladies (and men, it's 2019): Get up earlier and do it at home.

3. Getting freaky...

Another common sight, normally stationary and most try to be secretive - but it's obvious what they are doing. Get a room guys, you really couldn't wait? Don't think I really need to say much more... Yeap, no more.

4. Legs up and out...

Funnily enough, this one is not related to the last one, this one is more innocent but even more dangerous - as the car is moving! Americans with their automatics tend to stick their left leg out from the foot-well, either on the seat, on the dash or even out the window. This is a real thing that people do. That is dangerous as hell, imagine if you crash... your kneecap would be in your eye socket - never mind your shin becoming a bone and flesh mohawk.

5. Shaving...

So an electric shaver doesn't sound too bad, never mind the loss of a hand in emergencies and the distraction - but some people still use wet razors to shave in the car. God, imagine the mess if someone used a cutthroat razor and hit a pothole... another reason to wake up that extra 30 minutes earlier.

6. Playing an instrument...

I don't think I need to write anything about this. It's weird... but amazing.

7. Solo cheeky time...

Some people need some 'alone time', yet they decide the car is the right place for that. Back in 2015, a woman crashed her Mini into a stationary van - it was the driver's first day on the job as well. He had to explain to his new boss that a woman crashed into the van, as she was pleasuring herself with a sex toy. CCTV confirmed this and the driver wasn't fired after his first day. At least there was a happy ending.

8. Selfies...

Over the past 10 years, selfies had grown into an internet staple, and even with phone bans in place in most countries, there are always those who drive and take photos. In South Africa alone, Death figures dramatically rose alongside the numbers of internet selfies photos from mobile phones. Just because it's not a text or a phone, doesn't mean it's legal or safe guys. Be careful.

9. Hanging back like a rude boy...

You know what I mean - the young or hip people who set their driving position to be as far away from the wheel as possible. Some look like they have no driver, then you see the small guy with the cap backwards, thinking he is Snoop Dog in a Lambo, when he is a 20-something with a 2007 Corsa. It's always funny to see, but very sad, feel pity for them, as they think they are the bomb.

10. Drink driving...

This is the most moronic thing anyone can do, I truly believe the laws should be changed to "You have even one drink, then you can't drive AT ALL!" because it doesn't matter how you limit people, they will always abuse that system. In 2016, an estimated 9,040 people were either critically injured or killed in Britain, due to drink driving. Each year, that number rises and nothing is done to stop it. Next time you go out for a drink, get the bus or taxi. Google drink driving crashes, that will really sober you up.

Ah, well, that was a depressing end to a list.
