I am missing option - Wife with Friends. Always a joy to go in groups when going long distance.

What about girlfriend turning wife?

I think you should also put in mobile phone.
Some ppl just can't drive without it ...

Early in the morning, an empty highway and a great car : ALONE. To really be at one with my car, I don't need distractions. Voted for alone.

Next best, with the family and / or my best friend.

you have pretty much covered all the different types of people around you in the options, but then what does "others" means

Well i prefer driving alone, second with family and friends for long distances.

I need company for long drives, be it anyone (friends, parents etc), so voting for friends.
For short and fast drives I prefer to be alone, I don't want to scare my fellow passengers he he.

There are people who like to drive with 'OTHERS', other than the two you mentioned.

See two people even voted for that option.

I am not surprised that I am not alone in alone being my lone choice.

For me the thrum of a well tuned engine cruising on an open road is the most relaxing experience ever.
