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.
