Driver reactions affected by eating and drinking

A recent study has indicated that eating and drinking behind the wheel can almost double a driverâ??s reaction times.
Driver reactions affected by eating and drinking

A recent study has indicated that eating and drinking behind the wheel can almost double a driver’s reaction times.

RAC reports that researchers at the University of Leeds found driver reaction times increased by 44% whilst eating, during a study which used a driving simulator and a set of tests.  The study also showed that drinking caused reaction times to increase by 22%.

Unwrapping food and opening bottles is thought to be a major cause of the considerable reaction time delay, and the study suggested that drivers were 18% more likely to be unable to maintain a steady lane position.

Since driving whilst holding and using a mobile phone is now illegal, many are calling for eating, drinking and smoking behind the wheel to receive the same treatment.  Careless driving is not only avoidable and potentially dangerous, but it also partially responsible for pushing up the cost of car insurance.
