Eating or drinking whilst driving

Eating, drinking and driving don’t mix!

With fast food outlets offering drive-through facilities and modern cars featuring cup holders and even fridges, it’s very tempting to eat or drink whilst driving.

But think about it. How do you feel when you see a car in front swerving all over the road because the driver isn’t paying attention? Why are you any different?

Eating and drinking whilst driving is distracting, involves taking your eyes off the road, diverting your attention and can lead to unnecessary crashes that could have been prevented.

If you are hungry or you need a drink then stop in a safe place and continue your journey when you have finished.

Don’t be distracted – give the road your full attention.
