Hmm, I use the Lantus SoloStar pen and only have to inject once a day, (usually) around 11:30 at night. Doc told me it's very important to get the insulin the same time each day. But, it's hard to do when you're driving home from a concert during the time you should be injecting.
For that scenario, I suggest you do wait until home to inject. Low blood sugar is rare with Lantus alone; but could happen. Better to be a little on the high (glucose wise) side when driving.
