Laws against driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol are understandable. But what about driving under the influence of a migraine?
Megan Oltman, author of Free My Brain from Migraine Pain
, presents a unique story of a woman in the U.S. who nearly has her license suspended because of her migraines. According to Oltman, the story goes like this: “Her son, who lived at home, had his driving privileges suspended and was applying for a restricted license so he could drive himself to work. Since the mother was at home, the MVC [Motor Vehicle Commission] initially said that the mother could drive him to work. The mother informed them that she could not always drive him because, if she had a migraine, she could not drive. The MVC used this as a reason to review her driving privileges, with a suggestion that they might suspend her license.”
