Avoid Eating These Foods While Driving

Oct 24, 2012 Posted by in Distracted Driving, Motor Vehicle Accidents and Safety, Personal Injury

Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a driver’s attention away from the road. That includes eating – and a company that insures classic cars says it has found the 10 most dangerous foods to eat behind the wheel.

Hagerty Classic Insurance often receives claims for damage to car interiors caused by food. The company recently looked at the issue and released a list of top offenders:

  1. Coffee
  2. Hot soup
  3. Tacos
  4. Chili dogs
  5. Hamburgers
  6. Barbequed food
  7. Fried chicken
  8. Jelly or cream-filled doughnuts
  9. Soda
  10. 10. Chocolate

As Hagerty Classic Insurance points out, anything that spills easily is likely to be distracting, especially during a driver’s morning commute. When pressed for time, a driver is more likely to try to clean up a mess while driving.
