Do You Know The Law for Eating Whilst Driving?

Did you know that you might actually be breaking the law if you eat whilst you are driving? If you are on your way home from an Easter egg hunt this bank holiday weekend, stop and think before you bite into that chocolate egg!

Eating whilst driving isn’t an offence in itself, however, if the food (or drink) that is being consumed causes a distraction or impacts the driver’s ability to control the vehicle, then it is possible you could be prosecuted and convicted of careless driving. Careless driving has a penalty of between 3 – 9 penalty points and a fine of 50% to 150% of your net weekly income.

So, although those Easter eggs may look tempting and delicious, keep yourself and your licence safe and wait until you get home before tucking in! If you cannot resist temptation, and find yourself needing our help this bank holiday weekend, then please call our expert team of motoring lawyers who are happy to offer our expert motoring law advice so you can get back to enjoying your long weekend.
