 Warning: Don's Eat Crisps While Driving
A new study has deemed chips to be the most lethal snack behind wheels.

The study by i-kube, makers of a curfew device that cuts insurance premium for youngsters by measuring driving time, showed that millions of motorists have crashed while driving and eating.

During the survey, it was found that unwrapping chocolate bars and trying to open fizzy drinks bottles caused one in 10 to crash or come close to it.

Clearing up mess or litter and spilling food or drink on oneself is also a major cause of accidents.

Despite the danger, six out of 10 people regularly eat and drink behind the wheel, the study found.

"Despite the danger, millions of drivers still eat or drink when driving. No matter how hard you try, it takes some of your concentration off the road," the Daily Express quoted an i-kube spokesman as saying.
