Motorists who eat while driving "dramatically increase" their chance of crashing their vehicle and seriously injuring someone, a road safety charity has said.
Brake are calling on the Government to raise fines for distracted and careless drivers and their deputy chief executive Julie Townsend explained:
Eating at the wheel often means taking your eyes, hands and mind off the road and dramatically increases your chances of crashing and killing or seriously injuring someone.
Drivers need to take regular breaks and make time away from their vehicles to enjoy lunch or perform other tasks.
We are also appealing to the Government to increase fines for distraction and careless driving offences, to stop risky multi-tasking drivers.
