I got a video link to a DUI ( driving under the Influence) video via email this week and it was so full of human emotion and always a good reminder. For one small sanctimonious moment I felt ‘oh well this does not apply to me – I am knocked up so not drink driving’
But I have, we all have, I am as guilty as anyone else, but glad I never hurt anyone. It has strengthened my resolve not to do it even when not pregnant. We are pretty good and either Yme drinks or I do never both.
But my bubble of piety was popped when I realized that I do worse. I use my phone when driving, a quick tweet, an sms etc. Then I heard on the radio that you are 6 times more likely to be involved in an accident texting on your phone than when Driving under the Influence! Phone now stays in my bag, it can ping or ring all it likes, nothing is so important it can not wait until I arrive.
So if you ever have even one too many or drive using your phone, this is a good reminder not to. It has shaken me up a little.
