Dangers of Eating While Driving
With the incredible prevalence and convenience of drive thru restaurants, many drivers choose to get and eat their food on the go. While many people are aware of the dangers of drinking and driving, and even texting and driving, many people are not familiar with just how dangerous it can be to eat behind the wheel. Drivers who eat while operating a vehicle must divide their attention between eating and driving, which can result in serious accidents.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident because of another driver’s negligence or recklessness, you may be able to take legal action. Contact the Green Bay car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 to discuss your legal options.
Consequences of Distracted Driving
When someone is distracted behind the wheel, he or she may make mistakes that can cause devastating accidents. A driver who is eating while driving may:
- Swerve in and out of his or her lane
- Cause a head on collision
- Lose control of his or her vehicle
- Drive into or up on curbs
- Hit signs or guardrails
Safe driving requires full concentration, and this could be compromised if a driver chooses to eat and drive. Reckless driving is never acceptable and victims may qualify for financial compensation from the driver responsible for their injuries.
