What does pac-manning mean?

Driving in the middle of the road

A term based on the popular Pac-man arcade game where you gobble up dots to gain points.

When you drive in the middle of the road that has dividing lines, your vehicle appears similar to a Pac-man eating up dots. You should not do this with cars coming from the opposite direction, because it's illegal and may cause a crash. The term may also appear as "pacmanning."


I almost got in a crash 3 times last night! 1 guy was pac-manning down the middle of the road and almost hit me
