  • I do but I dont think it is as bad cuz you don't have to think as much or gesture with your hands like you do when you talk

  • Eating in your car, unless it's something that requires utensiles, isn't nearly as dangerous as talking on a cell/texing while driving. You don't use up nearly as much of your attention while eating then you do paying attention to the conversation/text. Anything you do that distracts you from driving, even the slightest bit, (like playing with the radio or opening a soda) is dangerous. However, the severity of the tasks does vary.

  • Hmmm.....lemme tell you a little story.....

    Last night, I was driving downtown, I wasn't texting, I wasn't talking, I wasn't eating, I wasn't listening to the radio. Nothing. I just plum wasn't paying attention. I turned onto a one-way street going the wrong direction, and didn't notice until a cop drove towards me with his lights flashing.

    If you're not paying attention, you're not paying attention. However on other days, I text and drive, eat and drive, etc etc, and pay perfect attention to what I'm doing (all this whilst driving a stick shift).

    Who gives a rat's ass as long as you're paying attention to the road. :)
