The 10 worst foods to eat while driving

Having a meal behind the wheel is always a bad idea. But if you insist on taking the risk, at least avoid the most distracting and dangerous delights.

Not to get off topic, but in my opinion...there are those " Halogen " headlights on vehicles that  when is approaching you,  can be fatally distracting!!
I have to look in another direction always when a vehicle is approaching me with those....OR...sometimes place my hand up towards the windshield to block the intensity of the headlights in my eyes. Why are they not illegal???  They should be banned.  Not sure why ppl think they have to have those types of headlights. ** Anyone out there agree with me on this ???

The least informative, most useless article I have read in a long time.

MSN owes me another five minutes of my life back for reading a lame article (again).  I do not know what's worse; reading this article or that people make a living writing this garbage.

This is, by far, the stupidest article I have ever read!  (I know, "stupidest" is not a word, but appropriate at this moment!)  Anyone trying to eat a Cheesesteak or a bowl of cereal with milk deserves to be in an accident.  Come on, they seriously spend government money to do a study on this????  All it takes is COMMON SENSE, which I realize not all people have!   This is just ridonkulous!!!

WHO EATS CEREAL WHILE DRIVING!!!!!!!!!! this article is stupid  -_-

I completely agree with the person who stopped reading when it came to a bottle of water. This WOMAN who wrote the article is employed and being paid to waste our time with no research on her own. It takes no longer to look in the rear view mirror or glance to the side to see if there are children coming on to the street (maybe hers) than it does to reach for a bottle of water. You, lady are very lucky to work for such idiots like those who are paying you. Please use this article on your resume, I dare you!

I like to prepare meals while I drive. It saves time on the way home from work.  Although, I do get weird looks on the highway when I'm flipping pizza dough.

My God! we are not talking about spinning spagetti on a fork here,or eatind a rack of ribs! if people are that inept at munching on a snak and cant drive?yes by all means pull off the road,have we come down to such nit-picking about all we do? how much Government Grant Money was stuffed into these so called "Experts" pockets?

I am not sayying it cannot be a hazard,but so is ,Coughing, Sneezing, And ohh May i also mention ? Sucking down a coffee,latte, bottled water?

Enough of the American people being treated like Pre-schoolers!!

One last thing i must say.... uhhh..I am a truck driver....when did Detroit make blinkers an option??? cuz ppl.i dont see alot of them Working...... cause of an accident????? Naaaa experts wont was that Breakfast muffin from Micky-D's !!

this is definitely the worst and most stupid article i have ever read in my entire life...i cant believe MSN...

What a moron. Dude if you can't drive and eat french fries at the same time then you should give up driving....and walking and chewing gum for you would likely prove an insurmountable challenge

I guess the cut backs have affected MSN Money, because the editor must have been fired, other wise this article would have never made out of the "think tank room". Not alone actually published, even to the internet. If this is what journalism is then I would be happy to email my resume over, when do you want me to start. 


OK, I tried to post my message, but now :"There is problem with creating post right now. Please try again later" so I guess that means another position opened up at MSN Money.

Eating & driving doesn't cause accidents...not having the skillz to do so does.

I have a difficult time with Creme Brulee. Lighting the torch, keeping it lit and so on.

This article literally tells people theyre not mentally capable of chewing and driving. Popcorn topping the list?!? A drink?!?!? Has the person (or people) who wrote this ever been behind the wheel before? As someone who's driven alot (and never hesitated to consume while doing so) I agree with the other commenter that tacos and chopsticks shouldve been on the list and I'd add fried chicken (unless that's already on the list; I stopped reading after I saw bottled water)


I know that in our knowledge-hating world it's tempting for new organizations to publish lighter fare; more entertaining "journalism." But just because they've given up investigating important matters doesnt mean they get to publish FALSE information. Somebody high-up at MSN should lose the job they've decided to stop performing.

Who actually gets paid to compile this crap.  I know I have to eat a bowl of cereal every morning on my way to work or my day just isn't  the same!  Geez....and if you don't have the hand eye coordination to open a bottle of water without looking at it, maybe you shouldn't be driving at all.

Gina must get paid by the word. I am impressed she makes a living to write w/out doing any research - she forgot tacos, chili dogs, bowl of soup, poutine, ribs, chicken wings, shish-kabobs, just to mention a few :)

I have long thought that people should be forced to take an IQ test before being allowed to even apply for a drivers license or to procreate.  I believe this proves at least one of my points.

Only two of these were legit. 

Cheese steaks and cereal. 

Having said that, unless you're from Philadelphia and eat cheese steaks for breakfast, lunch, and dinner , or you're an 8 year old trying to drive, eat cereal, and watch Saturday morning cartoons simultaneously, you're probably okay.
