Detailing the dangers of eating while driving

Common types of driving distractions have been detailed on this blog in the past. One that might immediately jump out to many in Baton Rouge is eating and drinking while driving. These acts are likely considered to be so natural that few might actually classify them as distracting. Yet the statistics detailing the dangers of eating while driving cannot be overlooked.

Drugged driver hits, kills elderly man
