Eating and Drinking While Driving

April 2019

Eating and drinking while driving is as old as cars themselves.  While eating and drinking while driving is not illegal by itself in the State of Wisconsin, eating and drinking behind the wheel can cause distracted driving.  Studies have shown  that drivers who eat and drink while driving are 3.6 times more likely to be in a crash and 65% of near miss crashes are caused by drivers eating or drinking.

Although much of the current discussion regarding about distracted driving is about texting and smartphones, eating and drinking while driving still poses a danger on the roadway.
