This distraction is just as dangerous as texting while driving

The vast majority of car accidents are caused by distracted driving. These days, people generally assume that distracted driving is texting while driving or focusing your attention on a device while you drive.

Studies show, however, that eating while driving is one of the greatest contributors to distracted driving accidents. A study by ExxonMobile found that nearly 75% of drivers eat behind the wheel. Over 80% admit to drinking beverages while driving.

Enjoy your joe in the car on the way to work each morning? Coffee has been found to be one of the greatest trouble-makers. The drink is hot, the lid is cumbersome and one bump can spill the entire cup all over you.

Other distracting foods include tacos, chili dogs, burgers, ribs, wings, soup, jelly donuts and melting chocolate.

Reading through this list, you may laugh. You may think, who would grab a rack of ribs to eat on the drive?

The truth is that with our fast-paced lifestyles and on-the-go days, we are often tempted to multitask to the point of silly decisions. We don't want to take the time to eat lunch, and eating in the car is easier. We have probably all been tempted to do incredibly dangerous tasks behind the will in the name of multi-tasking.

To protect yourself from a preventable car accident, though, take the time to do your texting, emailing, grooming - and eating - before you get behind the wheel so you can dedicate your entire attention to the road.
