Delicious Distractions During Driving
Sometimes there just is not enough time in the day to squeeze in a meal. Eating while driving just seems like an easy and logical combination. However, eating distracts drivers from the road. A couple bites of a breakfast sandwich are enough of distraction to cause a deadly accident. In fact, eating while driving is one of the main causes of distracted driving. These are some of the reasons why eating while driving can be dangerous.
Eating can cause spills. Many delicious foods can be quite messy. Foods like jelly, cheese, and crumbs can all over you. You will probably look down to see the damage caused by the mess. You will probably look for napkins to clean up the mess. This is all very distracting. During your frantic cleanup, your eyes will be taken off the road. In the short time you are distracted; you could collide into another vehicle.
Have you ever had trouble opening something? Imagine that but while you are driving. Instead of focusing on the road, you are trying to open a sticky candy wrapper or unwrap your burger. This seemingly harmless distraction will take your focus off the road. You will probably take your hands off of the wheel to deal with unwrapping your food. With your hands preoccupied, you will be unable to steer your vehicle. This will prevent you from avoiding a pedestrian or a crazy driver.
Your hands will get slippery. Greasy food, condensation from your soda, and food residue will make your hands slippery. This will keep you from safely holding your steering wheel. It will also distract you from driving. You will probably try to find a way to clean or wipe your hands, and this will be even more distracting.
You may also burn yourself. A hot meal or drink will distract your focus. The hot liquid will burn your lips and probably frustrate you. Even worse, your hot food may spill onto your lap, and you will be forced to sit through the burns. After you are burned, you may also accidentally step on your brake or gas pedal. Your lack of control may cause you to collide into another vehicle.
You have had a tiring day. All you want to do is indulge in that delicious pizza. You cannot wait till you get home, and you start eating the pizza while driving. The pizza is everything you wanted and more. This pizza’s deliciousness is in itself a distraction. Instead of paying attention to the road, you are enjoying your scrumptious pizza.
Distractions can be quite dangerous. A distraction can also be quite delicious. It is up to responsible drivers to stop eating and driving. This will be difficult to do, but it will make the roads safer for all drivers. Resist the temptation to eat and drive. Wait till you get to your location. It will make the food that much better and your drive that much safer.
