Unwrapping Your Food Is The Most Dangerous Part of Eating While Driving

The most dangerous part about eating and driving isn’t the eating part.  It’s what you do before you start to eat.

A recent survey by Insure.com found the most dangerous part of eating and driving is unwrapping your food since you usually have to use both hands.

Reaching for something like a napkin, cleaning up a spill or a stain and putting condiments on your food are all other dangerous things you can do while eating while driving.

56% of Americans admit to eating while driving regularly and 7% say they do it everyday.

Generally, the most dangerous things to eat behind the wheel are foods that require both hands, cause a spill or make you take your eyes off the road.

The most common foods we eat behind the wheel are French fries, candy bars, hamburgers, chips . . . and there’s a tie between granola bars and donuts.  I usually eat chicken nuggets or a burrito while driving.
