IÂ know I’ve shaken my fist at those cellÂ phone-talking, reckless drivers, butÂ sometimes a Schlotzsky’sÂ Mediterranean Pizza is in the fist I’m shaking.
After extensive car simulator tests, English researchers are concluding that eating or drinking while driving will seriously impair your driving & make you no better than those cell phone drivers.
The test simulated a city environment which at some point you are confronted by a pedestrian stepping out into the street.Â 9 out of 10 times eating/drinking drivers had an accident, and I don’t mean spilling that Burger King drink in your lap.
So, what to do?Â I suggest eating a bit & drinking a sip while at a red light or avoiding it all together & waiting until you get where you are going to finish your meal.Â
One more thing- to the woman I saw this weekend who was eating a burger, talking on her cell phone, checking her makeup in the rearview & merging into my lane without looking- this one is for you, sista.
