The most food-related accidents happen in the morning (prime eating time as folks are running late to work or school). Certain types of food and drinks are among the most popular and dangerous distractions, specifically:
- Hot soup
- Fried chicken
- Filled or Powdered Donuts
- Soft Drinks
The key issue for drivers to remember is that, no matter one's amount of experience; driving is difficult and dangerous. All forms of distraction should be avoided, or at least kept to a minimum. You and the persons sharing the roadways with you will be better off if you focus on driving and not on a meal.
