Default Ban Eating While Driving

Since no one was hurt I can laugh at this one. Just got a call from one of my customers. His son was involved in a wreck with a guy who was eating while driving. Not a hamburger, not a sandwich, not some chips, but a full steak dinner in his lap. The accident report shows that he admitted to looking down to eat a steak dinner when he crossed the center line and hit another car head on and then ran off the road into a tractor dealership and busted up a tractor. My customer was behind him when it happened and his only damage was hitting some of the debris.

No one was hurt very bad but damn, you can't make this chit up.

The guy must be on a veggy diet that his wife put him on. He was trying to stuff the steak down before he got home.

x2 on spaghetti night! Not because I'm taking a bite but because I always get it on my nice shirt!

This is scary because most folks that eat with chop sticks (in the car or not) are horrible drivers to start with.

I have been guilty of snarfing down a burger and some fries while driving. But a whole steak dinner? Next thing you'll be getting a claim on someone who wrecked while eating whole crabs...

Those big evil food corporations know you are going to eat and drive. Does anyone really need an extra large supersized french fry container! I think not! At a minimum, it should be illegal for anyone to possess those fries containers, unless they are competing in a state sanctioned eating contest.

By the looks of a lot of Americans we should just ban eating for a few weeks every month.

The problem is they don't have flat bottoms. I think they should outlaw those containers, the salt falls out the bottom too. Dummies.

That would only work if it was a women driving, but sounds good to me.

The government should ban threads about banning stuff.
