Rubber Neckers

For those of you who do not know what “Rubber Neckers” are; which I only recently found out that not everyone is familiar with this term.
DEF: “Rubber Necker” – a person who interrupts what they are doing just look at what is happening to someone else. The orher incident or event usually has nothing to do with the Rubber Necker, but due to curiosity these Rubber Neckers have to interrupt (sometimes stops) what they are doing to look at the other event.

The best examples are the individuals who slow their car down to a crawl just because there is a police car stopped on the side of the highway with another private car. If you think these people are bad, what about those who slow their cars down on the highway to look at an incident on the far side of the incoming traffic.

I have spoken to many people (friends) about the concept of “Rubber Neckers” and none of them say they are one. Although, I see them in every city that I go.
