    Smoke from grilling often sets the fire alarm off and wakes up the household and neighbours

    Hi there, that may make good sense but it's not entirely true (in the UK). If it were I would rarely be able to commence a drive at all as I am often in the 4s. A lot depends on an individuals circumstances of course (and whether they fall fast or not etc) but the Law states you CAN start off a drive in the 4s but should have a snack.

    If you hypo whilst you are driving, then you MUST stop (obviously), treat the hypo and THEN wait until it's in the 5s to continue driving.

    I think most of it when you read is recommended not required.. the only thing set in stone is that you cant drive when clinically hypo.. and you are classed as clinically hypo at 3.9 or below I believe.
