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.

I used to think that "drinking and driving" meant that you couldn't drink ANYTHING when you were driving. My babysitter used to always drink coffee when she was driving us to school.

When I was little and they would run the "dont drink and drive" adds i used to think that was drink anything.

It wasn't until I freaked out when my dad drank iced tea while at the wheel and he explained to me just what kind of drinks were illegal to drive with.
