10 Hazardous Foods You Need to Stop Eating in Your Car

10 Hazardous Foods You Need to Stop Eating in Your Car

It’s convenient and time-saving, but eating yummy foods while driving can cost you your life, especially these 10 common goodies!

Just tell me, who doesn’t often take a bite of their favorite food without enjoying its irresistible deliciousness to the fullest? Well, this is actually a perfect synonym to distraction!

When you lose attention to anything other than the road (even for a moment), you’re naturally putting yourself at risk of a potential accident. And thinking “what could possibly go wrong?” is the biggest mistake any driver can make because, apparently, so many things can go terribly wrong.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration found that the cause of most accidents is drivers not paying attention, and thus warns that eating while driving is even more distracting than texting while driving!

Bad, worse, to the worst, these are the top 10 hazardous foods you should never eat while driving if you know what’s good for you and your car, according to the Hagerty Classic Insurance of Traverse City, Michigan:

#1 – Chocolate



Chocolate The Spruce

Chocolate is one of the best and most delicious snacks that you can enjoy anywhere, including your car. Sadly, it turned out to be dangerous due to its melting nature!

In most cases, your fingers get coated with chocolate, which continues to melt against the warmth of your skin. This may sound romantic but you end up leaving ugly stains on everything you touch.

The dangerous part is when you attempt to clean the mess off the steering wheel and suddenly find yourself swerving, or worse…

According to some studies, a driver’s instinct to clean melted chocolate off the wheel often results in accidents. (Wait, don’t get me wrong but shouldn’t a driver’s instinct be to actually drive!)

#2 – Soft Drinks

Most soft drinks are easy to carry and most people don’t resist the temptation to enjoy their favorite drink while on the road because why not!

Besides the possibility that you can spill your drink effortlessly, you should also keep in mind that carbonated beverages can go fizzy while you’re sipping if you make a sudden move. I guess no need to remind you how cola fizz in the nose. It’s everything but pleasant (or safe).

#3 – Cream-filled and Jelly Donuts

Some people would happily devour any jelly donut that may cross their path, if you’re one them, don’t do this in your car! Actually, this one makes sense. I dare you to eat a cream-filled or jelly donut without having at least some of the filling ooze out.

While there’s a wide variety of fillings, Raspberry jelly is the most difficult to remove from fabric. So you’ll likely end up with an ever-lasting stain to remind you not to eat in your car again.

#4 – Fried Chicken

Fried chicken is a total no-no when driving! It’s obviously greasy and makes your hands slippery, which means you’ll keep trying to wipe them on anything, including your shirt, as you drive.

The worst thing is that you’ll make the steering wheel greasy too, making it very difficult to steer safely. Not to mention that greasy food destroys the seats’ leather upholstery in high-end vehicles.

Barbecued Goodies Popular Science

Any barbecued food comes with the sauce, which can be so tasty but will eventually end up on everything you touch, especially if you lick your fingers. Moreover, this type of food isn’t easy to consume and we all know that it’s messy by nature.

It could take only one moment to check how bad the sauce stain on your shirt is so you may be involved in a crash a moment later. Eating anything barbecued while driving is just a terrible idea.

#6 – Juicy Hamburgers

A burger actually has it all, the grease, mayo, ketchup, mustard, leaking tomato and other ingredients, etc, especially if it’s a thick and juicy hamburger.

Burgers are one of those messy foods that need much focus and it’s almost impossible to take a bite and put down or finish without staining your hands and wheel with slippery grease.

Greasy hands are far from being safe on a steering wheel. Next time, just park and eat. It won’t take forever and better safe than sorry or even dead.

#7 – Chili

Chili Prima

Just who eats chili behind the wheel? And how did they picture the whole eating and driving scene actually working out? Seriously! A bowl of chili while driving!

I guess we can all picture how this one won’t work since you basically need both of your hands to eat chili (one for the bowl and the other for the spoon) while you also need two hands to drive! I don’t know if this is hilarious, dumb, or attempting to suicide.

#8 – Tacos

Similar to chili, this yummy Mexican snack is very messy with the ability to disassemble itself without any help. Not only this will leave your car looking (and smelling) like a salad, but the hot sauce is very likely to end up on your lap or even in your eye.

I know you love tacos (we all do) but it just has to wait until you safely turn off the engine.

#9 – Hot Soups

Hot Soups Wikipedia

Surprisingly, many people drink hot soups while driving. It’s too risky that I’m left clueless trying to find out one good reason why anyone would want to drink hot soup behind the wheel!

Obviously, hot soup is dangerous because it can effortlessly spill on you, which will burn your skin and it’s only normal to get distracted since it’s really painful. I don’t know about you, but I’m totally reporting anyone who eats soup on the highway!

Do Not Drink Coffee and Drive!

Sounds heartbreaking but this black magic drink was proven to be distracting, and thus hazardous on the road. Hot coffee spills and burns, so you automatically jerk on the steering wheel. This may result in an instant crash!

The risk is totally not worth it! But if this is not convincing enough, you should know that the police are after drivers who drink coffee on the road. No kidding, a woman from Minnesota was actually pulled over for drinking coffee.

After all, coffee is better enjoyed not in a moving vehicle!
