I suppose that can go anywhere from slightly helpful to downright scary. Mine started out the latter and my kid tried to me that it was actually the former...tried.
I was driving in rush hour (it was almost 7 PM, gee...). The kid was playing Eminem loudly, because, well, how else do you play it?
Little guy: "Was that your phone?"
Me: "What?" I turned off the radio. We heard something loud beside us. I looked over and there was a cop beside us making hand motions that meant absolutely nothing to me. So, as I'm driving on the highway I open my window and say, "What?"
Cop: "Lights on!" Now I'm thinking he's saying his lights are on and I should pull over.
Cop: "Turn your lights on!" The sun was just beginning to set.
I looked at my dash and my "lights on" indicator was on.
Me: "They are on!" I yelled back.
Cop: "Turn your lights on!!!" He was not amused.
Me: "I'm turning them off and on. Are they on now?"
Cop: Just nods.
Me: "Thank you!" My heart bumped around in my chest.
Little guy: "That was nice."
Me: "Mmmm hmmmm." Doubtful at first, but he made me a believer by the time we got home.
