We were taught a lot of really dumb things growing up.

It must have been printed in some parent manual or something because it's a universal thing.

Growing up I thought it was illegal to turn on this light when my parents were driving

Everyone's parents told them the same thing.

That it was a "much bigger issue than it actually is."

Growing up my parents made me believe that someone turning a light on in the car while I’m driving was going to be a much bigger issue in my life than it actually is.

So yeah, turn the light on the car if you'd like.

Turning the light on in the car while driving was against the law... #LiesYourParentsToldYou
