Car Safety Tips to prevent accidents – how to

We all do it… we go through a drive thru, and pick up something to eat, right…??  But, is eating in the car really a safe thing to do???  How many accidents are caused each year from eating in the car??  Well, nearly 80 percent of accidents are caused by distractions due to eating in the car!  Yes, that is a huge percentage folks!  There are several resources that confirmed this number including, article, and an Accidents Direct article.  The most common culprit was coffee and hamburgers.  Please take this very serious gang; we want to make sure that drivers are safe behind the wheel.  We don’t want that ketchup to slip out of your burger, or the coffee to spill, or any other distraction to happen that might take your focus off of driving.  Take those burgers home and eat them there! Gerber Collision and Glass is always right here for any and all of your automobile needs!

  1. Good point about eating while driving. Can’t really enjoy it either.

  3. This is the first post that I have read regarding eating while driving. While it is not discussed often, but you have good sense in bringing it up in a blog. At all cost, we should avoid things that will distract us while driving. If one is really, really hungry, he should eat the delicious burger first before driving. Nice post!

  4. Distracted driving can be deadly – whether it involves talking on a cell phone, texting, or eating while driving as you’ve discussed here. While it is not discussed as often as texting while driving, eating while driving is just as serious – and should be avoided to prevent auto accidents.
