LAGOS TRAFFIC LAW AND PENALTY;
Eating and driving with one hand = 3 months in prison.
Eating while driving is one of the most common forms of distracted driving. Along with other distracted driving behaviors, the act of eating snacks or drinking beverages while behind the wheel presents serious safety risks on our highways.
Dangers of Eating While Driving
It’s important to understand the dangers associated with eating while driving. There are three common types of distractions that impair drivers’ abilities to safely operate their vehicles and avoid crashes:
- Visual distractions occur when a driver’s eyes are diverted away from the road to complete or pay attention to another task.
- Manual distractions require drivers to take their hands off of the wheel.
- Cognitive distractions take a driver’s mind and focus away from driving
Please ensure that you eat very well from home before you embark on driving anywhere in other not to eat with one hand while driving. This will prevent any form of distraction that can lead to accident and also the Lagos State Government is enforcing this law,so don’t be caught in the act.
