Eating While Driving is More Dangerous Than Texting

Put down that McGriddle and get those hands on the wheel.

Believe it or not, a new study found eating while driving is more dangerous than all of the other things we think are more dangerous.

The study from The Telegraph found people who ate while they were driving had 44% slower reaction times than normal.

Texting caused 37.4% slower reactions.  Having a phone conversation with a hands-free set caused 26.5% slower reactions.  And finally, driving at the legal alcohol limit of .08 caused 12.5% slower reactions.

That’s not to say drunk driving is safe . . . it’s more that the others are also really dangerous.  Especially eating, apparently.
