Distracted Driving: What’s the most distracting food?
So what’s the most distracting food in the car? Is it:
(A) A Hamburger
(C) A Soft Drink
Well, all but the licorice make the top ten, but coffee’s the number one food distraction. These distractions cause 25% of all car crashes, over a million and a half each year.
All the top ten distracting food items are messy. Motorists might spill, then try to clean up. If you’ve got to eat on the run, take five, then drive. And keep drinks in spill-proof containers. So taking a food break… Or filling out accident reports. It’s a no brainer.
We want Calgary drivers to keep their eyes, and their minds, on the road.
