Dangers of Eating While Driving

Many people view drinking or texting while driving as unacceptable and dangerous behaviors, but eating while driving can also be an extremely dangerous distraction. Eating while driving forces a driver to operate a motor vehicle with only one hand which can easily cause a driver to swerve and cause a serious accident. Driving requires complete concentration and may be compromised when drivers fail to pay attention to the road.

You may be eligible for financial compensation if you or a loved one has been in a car accident because of a reckless driver. Please contact the Milwaukee car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at (414) 271-0900 to discuss your legal options.

Consequences of Distracted Driving

Distracted driving endangers not only the reckless driver, but everyone near him or her on the road. Car accidents can lead to severe injuries that may last a lifetime. Some consequences of eating and driving include:

  • Flipping or losing control of a vehicle
  • Running into guardrails or traffic signs
  • Head on collisions or running other cars off the road
  • Running a red light or stop sign

There is never an excuse for reckless driving and these drivers need to be held accountable for their actions. Failing to pay attention to the road because of in-car distractions could endanger other people’s lives and victims may be entitled to financial compensation.
