Not when a big huntsman suddenly appears on the dashboard and starts
wandering around with the possibility of it dropping onto your lap.
This happened to me once. I almost had a spider caused accident.
Fortunately it walked into the air vent. I turned the air conditioning
on set at full to make it go torpid and set the windscreen fan on full
hoping that that would cause it to hang on tight. Had it blown it out I
suppose I might have ended up with a spider in the face!
