Should You Be Able To Eat While You Drive?
But in Oak Park, Il, that could become a crime. The village board members there are contemplating a ban on eating and driving...presumably because we don't have enough laws.
The idea came up at their meeting this week while discussing distracted driving. The common culprits came up: cell phones and texting. But eating and putting makeup on while driving also entered the mix. It seems the board members are testing the waters on this as they say they'll wait to act on it until early next year.
That ought to give them plenty of time to find other distracting activities in the car to ban. Here's just a few I can think of:
-Sipping on coffee while driving
-Singing out loud to your favorite song on the radio while driving
-Sneezing while driving
-Viewing billboards along the roadway while driving
-Chewing gum while driving
and finally...driving while driving.
That should keep us all safe!
