Should Eating While Driving be Illegal?

Safety advocates from around the country seem to agree on the fact eating while driving should be illegal. Why? Because eating while driving, much like texting while driving, is a form of distraction.

“The truth: Eating behind the wheel has proven to be just as dangerous as texting. If you’ve spent considerable time operating a motor vehicle, you’ve probably been distracted by drinking or eating at some point. An EXXON-Mobile survey of 1,000 individuals claims 70% of drivers have admitted to eating while driving, and 80% admitted to drinking non-alcoholic beverages on the road.”- The Thrillest
