Also, a study by Exxon Mobil of 1,000 drivers discovered that 70% of drivers eat while driving and 83% drink beverages when they’re on the road.

But on all seriousness, DON’T eat and drive because 65% of car crashes are caused by being distracted eating food behind the wheel.¬†Studies show that eating while driving is as dangerous as texting while driving.
