Monkey Business

So I had this dream last night that my friend and I were headed down the road to another town for some event and along the way there was a traffic jam. When we finally passed what was holding up the traffic, we looked over and saw a monkey driving a minivan. There were cops trying to get the monkey to stop the vehicle so they could retrieve the primate from it. What had happened, from what I gathered as we passed, was that the owner of the monkey was having car trouble: a flat tire. Someone had pulled over to help the man and the monkey had climbed into their van and drove off. I also remember we were stopped at a red light at one point while the monkey was driving wild and I started to get scared that the monkey was going to hit the car we were in (my best friend's car). At that point I woke up. So I decided to look up the meaning of this dream as well:
(once again, I put in bold italic that which-or what i believe-applies to me)

To see friends in your dream, signify aspects of your personality that you have rejected, but are ready to incorporate and acknowledge. The relationships you have with those around you are important in learning about yourself. Alternatively, dreaming of a friend, indicates positive news.
To dream that you are in traffic, signifies the frustrations that you are experiencing in your life. Things are not going as smoothly as you would like it to. You feel stuck at where you are in life. To see traffic in your dream, indicates the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sometimes you feel like you are just going with the flow. Things have become too routine.
To dream that you are directing traffic, implies that you have power and control over the path or destinations of others. The dream may be highlighting your anxieties about exercising that control.

To see a monkey in your dream, symbolizes deceit, insight and intuition. Those around you are working to advance their own interest. Alternatively, monkeys indicate an immature attitude, a playful nature and the mischievous side of your personality.

To see a monkey hanging or swinging from a tree, suggests that you are feeling troubled by some issue.
To dream that you are feeding a monkey, means betrayal by someone whom you thought cared about your interests.
Also consider the significance of the Three Mystic Monkeys who cover their eyes, ears and mouth to mean that they see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil.

To�see or drive a minivan in your dream, symbolizes family gatherings and family values. You may be experiencing the burdens and responsibilities involved with taking care and providing for a family. Alternatively, the minivan represents conservatism. You are settled down.

To see tires in your dream, suggest that you are dwelling too much in the past and need to move on toward the future. It also refers to your emotional health and your ability to bounce back from adversity. You are able to carry yourself from one situation to another with confidence.

To see or dream that you have a flat tire, indicates that you are feeling emotionally drained and weary. Your goals are temporarily hindered and as a result, you are unable to progress any further.
To dream that your tires have no more tread, suggests that are unable to get any traction toward achieving your goals.
To see tire tracks in your dream, denote that you are stuck in a rut. 

To see a stoplight in your dream, suggests that you feel you are being held back from pursuing your goals. Your forward progress is being controlled by someone or by some outside forces. In other words, you are not in control of your own life. Alternatively, the dream represents the pressure to succeed or else be left behind. If the traffic is green, then it indicates that you have been given the go-ahead to follow whatever path you have chosen or whatever decision you have made. 

To see the police in your dream, symbolizes structure, rules, power, authority and control. You need to put an end to your reckless behavior or else the law will catch up to you. Alternatively, the dream refers to failure in honoring your obligation and commitments.
To dream that you are arrested by the police, suggests that you feel sexually or emotionally restrained because of guilt. The dream may also be a metaphor that you are feeling apprehensive about something.
To dream that you are a police officer, represents your own sense of morality and conscience. The dream may serve to guide you down a straight path. If you have recurring dreams that you are a police officer, then it may mean that your past actions are leaving you with guilt. Consider your behavior and actions as the cop. If your dream that you are in pursuit of a suspect, then it indicates that your naughty and devious side is in conflict with your moral standards.
To dream that you are having difficulties contacting the police,�suggests that you have yet to acknowledge your own authoritativeness in a situation. You need to take control and be in command of the direction of your life.
