I remember when i was small i saw a magnet on my grandmothers fridge that said "MADD DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE"

so i took this literally....i thought you couldn't drink ANYTHING while driving...cuz when i saw my mom drinking some water while driving I was appalled.....i was like"mommy, you shouldn't drink and drive" She laughed

One family holiday we were driving along and we passed under a 'Drink Driving is a Crime' sign. My mother later pulled out a juice drink and offered it to my father who was driving. I completely freaked out because I thought my Dad was breaking the law because he was drinking (juice) while driving.

When I was a little kid, I heard PSAs and that about "drinking and driving". The phrase wasn't too specific, and I didn't understand the alcohol element to it. One day, after hearing an especially scary warning, I started screaming at my mother and refused to get into her car because she was bringing with her a can of diet soda. Oops!

When I was probably about 6, I remember seeing ads on TV reminding people not to drink and drive. I didn't know what alcohol was so I thought this applied to drinking any liquids at all. So I was very shocked and worried when I went to the grocery store with my mom one day and she got herself a soda and opened it in the car while she was driving home! I thought my mom was going to get arrested for drinking and driving.

When I was younger, after seeing all of those "dont drink and drive" ads on TV, I became upset when my father was behind the wheel with a can of soda. I said, "Dad! You're not supposed to drink and drive!"

When I was little, I took drinking and driving, well literally. I would always get onto my Mom for drinking and driving, even if it was only coffee or coke.
Also, I fussed at my uncle for not having both hands on the wheel while he was driving...for some reason I guess I thought that the cops would stop you if both of your hands were not on the wheel!

When I was younger, I used to be really afraid that my dad was going to get arrested because he was "drinking and driving". I didn't realise that "drinking and driving" didn't include soft drinks ;)

I remember seeing a commercial often when I was 4 (now 24) that depicted a group of teenagers drinking something (that I thought was just pop at the time) while sitting in their vehicle. As soon as the driver turned on the ignition, all passengers and the driver turned into skeletons and a scary voice said "Don't drink and drive!!!". From that point on, I thought that if you drink anything while driving, you would turn into a skeleton! I finally got the balls to drink some pop in my parents' car to see if I would actually turn into a skeleton. I was scared as hell after the first few sips but after a while, I realized that I wasn't really going to turn into a skeleton. Looking back at this moment just made me realize how dumb some of those 80's public service announcements are. Skeletons??? LOL!!!

When I was young, before I knew of the effects of alcohol, I thought you weren't allowed to drink and drive because when you would lift up the cup to drink, it blocked your view of the road. I would then chastise my dad for drinking his coffee while driving us to school because I thought all drinking and driving was against the law.

When i was little my mom always would always tell me that "you should never drink and drive". i guess she thought she was doing a good thing by stessing such an important thing at an early age, but as a young child i was much too young to know about alcohol or it's effects (my parents never drank), so i of course thought that "drinking and driving" meant drinking ANYTHING while driving in a vehicle, and i never drank any fluids in the car until i was older and understood what she had meant. :)
At least my "no drinking and driving" mindset made for far fewer bathroom stops on family road trips as a kid. :)

I once heard on the news when you drink and drive you get arrested and you get put to jail.So one day my mom got a bootle of coke at the store and started drinking it when she was driving and we stopped at a stop light there was a police car right behind us. So when I saw him right behind our car I started balling my head of screaming mom is going to get arrested cause shes drinking while shes driving but then she said she wasnt going to get arrested.

I truly thought that 'drinking and driving' was any drink. it was fair enough, i thought, as if you drink a bottle of water, as it starts to get empty, you have to tilt your head back (and therefore, take your eyes off the road). i never once thought it was alcohol related till i reached about 11.
i thought i had it all worked out :(

When I first heard the saying "don't drink and drive," I thought that went for any drink. I thought "then why are there even cupholders in cars?!"

Don't drink and drive! Literally. I would fuss at the driver if they had so much as a coke in their hand.

I believed for a long time that 'Drinking and Driving' meant drinking anything while driving, not just alcohol.

I used to believe that my mom was a criminal. I didn't realize that "Drinking & Driving" was alcohol specific. I used to sit in the car and watch my mom drink her bottles of Diet Pepsi thinking of how BAD she was! I was always too terrified to say anything, and was so nervous that we were about get arrested!
