Snacking whilst Driving – OK or go hungry?

Is it OK to snack when driving?

We all know that driving after alcohol is bad – highly illegal too after a certain limit, but how about eating and drinking soft drinks behind the wheel?

Well, it’s a very similar story to driving with bare feet. The law as it stands does not specify that you cannot snack whilst driving, but the question that will be asked if a legal situation arises is something like this:
were you in full control of the vehicle at the time of…..?”

After a long day out with the horses, it’s quite likely you’ll be hungry and snacking is right up there with things to do on the way home. Suffice to say, be safe.
