Eating while driving seems like an easy enough thing to do while you are crunched for time but it can cause major issues especially if you are eating something greasy.  Plus, it never fails that whatever you are eating will quickly fall apart.

I’ll be the first one to admit I have eaten while driving.  In fact, I did a few weeks ago.  I had just finished a remote and I was crunched for time so I grabbed a sandwich and hit the road munching away.

65% of near miss accidents are caused by eating while driving.  The study found that these results are worse than texting while driving.

Now that is scary.  I will think twice before I eat and drive again.

 

I ran across this video today when I was looking into eating while driving.  It is a giant wake-up call when it comes to distracted driving.
