The awareness and concern for distracted driving grows larger each day.
Last weekend, I saw a law firm billboard that screamed: "We sue distracted drivers."
Since this all began years ago with the new kids on the block — cell phones and texting -- I’ve encouraged that more should be done about distracted driving.
Applying makeup? Changing CDs? Passengers? Eating?
Well how about this beauty out of Beaver Township this week:
There was a traffic accident there Tuesday night; a minor one; nobody hurt.
The driver told officers that he smacked into the back of the car in front of him at a stoplight because he was trying to eat off of a plate.
And for dessert ....
The driver also told officers that just 90 minutes earlier, he got stuck in a ditch in Canfield because he was eating while driving.
