I have to admit I was a little surprised at how many lead foots there are in our little DD blog community. So as a public service, I decided to look for some things that can help us beat our need for speed.
June started the ball rolling by suggesting in the comments that I get a keychain to serve as a reminder of the perils of speeding.
If I could see it while I was driving, it might do the trick, but unfortunately, the way my car is designed, you can't see the keys (or any keychains) when you're driving. So I had to look for other options.
Maybe I should place this sticker over the number 60 on my speedometer. Of course it wouldn't help me much if the speed limit is lower than 60 and I'd probably ignore it when I'm traveling and get into 70mph speed zones.
Perhaps we need something a little less subtle, something like this sticker on the speedometer. I think seeing this red hand might help encourage slowing down to a more reasonable speed.
If all fails, our HoHs could always do this next one. I have to admit that it might work for me. If I didn't know how fast I was going once I crossed into the blocked out area, I might not be willing to chance it. By much anyway.
Maybe I should just hang a mini hairbrush from my rear view mirror. Just drill a hole in the handle and run a piece of cord through it. To a vanilla person, it just looks like I'm prepared for any hair emergency. For anyone in a DD relationship, it's a strong reminder. Of course then you have to worry that your HoH might use it on you if you start acting up while traveling.
It's not really subtle and if a vanilla friend or family member gets in your car, you'll have some explaining to do, but this sticker is always an option, especially if placed where you will see it every time you drive.
Maybe I should design a special car for us ladies. I envision it automatically sensing the speed limit and should the speedometer go more than 5 past the speed limit, a recording of our HoH's voice will play reminding us to "Slow down or else!" Maybe the seat warmer will automatically turn on as well, bringing warmth to our bottoms, a clear indication of what we can expect for speeding.
