Risks Associated with Eating and Driving
Much is made of the dangers posed by a host of distractions that occur on the roadway. Cell phones, movies, music, applying makeup, and even the climate control system in your car all pose a dangerous threat to your concentration. One distracting activity, however, gets much less attention: eating while driving.
Eating while driving can result in devastating accidents that cause serious injuries to innocent motorists. If you were in an accident caused by a driver that was eating, call 800-242-2874 to speak with a Stevens Point car accident attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.
Eating While Driving Dangers
Driving requires more focus than people regularly recognize. Simultaneously, eating seems like it is a simple enough activity that it could be easily done while maneuvering an automobile. The fact is, however, that coupling these two tasks can result in the following:
- Drifting between lanes
- Running head-on into oncoming traffic
- Losing control of a vehicle
- Driving into or up on a curb
- Crashing into signs or guardrails
Focus is required for safe driving, especially during high traffic times when the cars around us may behave less predictably than usual. The sad truth is that eating while driving may constitute reckless driving, and puts the distracted driver, and every other motorist on the road, at risk.
