Eating food while trying to drive

Operating a vehicle can be especially difficult under certain circumstances, from ice on the road to intoxication. It is also important to think about some of the other behaviors and risk factors that can contribute to a crash. For example, trying to eat food can be dangerous behind the wheel and may lead to a distracted driving accident. There are many different foods that drivers try to consume on the road and some may be more distracting than others. However, anything that diverts a driver's attention is dangerous.

From removing wrappers to holding a large food item with both hands, eating food can prompt a driver to take his or her hands off the wheel. A driver's hands may also become greasy, which can affect their grip on the steering wheel, or they may become distracted while trying to clean their hands or remove food from their teeth or clean their face. Moreover, eating food can be distracting from a mental point of view.

Some people eat food while driving because they do not have a lot of time and need to get to work. As a result, they may think they have no option but to eat their breakfast or lunch on the road. Under these circumstances, they may also drive over the speed limit or exhibit other examples of reckless driving (such as ignoring stop signs, switching lanes abruptly, and so on). Sadly, driving like this can result in a fatal collision or a crash which causes devastating injuries.
