BUT I've also almost had an accident several times from being so stressed and so distracted. She SCREAMS. Really screams. She also chokes and vomits, and claws herself. She may be more protected from the risk of a car accident, but she is also at high danger of choking herself. Not to mention the cortisol and stress hormones that must be pumping through her body. I have absolutely no ability to use my hearing as a sense on the road and can't hear a thing while driving, which is very dangerous. I cannot concentrate well with the noise - I don't think anyone could.
Please don't infer I'm not taking my DDs safety seriously. Because I very much am.
