Have to agree with the flawed study opinion
How can anyone with half a brain believe the statement that texting while driving is less dangerous than eating while driving??!! Unless there are other factors involved that the author neglected to report. Or as Mark Twain said "First collect the facts, then distort them at your leisure" which must have been what was done here. Maybe we could look at who commissioned this study and that might give us some answers as well. I have never attempted to text while driving hell, I can barely text while standing. And I rarely eat while driving although on occasion I have attempted this feat, but usually it is with something along the lines of fries or maybe onion rings on the very rare occasion that it has been anything else (burger, sandwhich etc) I have been with someone else that can handle the "de-packaging" of the product. As far as drinking? That's what straws are for. I understand where all this "intrusive behavior" is coming from though. I once worked for a company that required you to wear safety glasses in certain areas. While one of the employees was entering this are he reached up to put on his safety glasses (while walking) and proceeded to poke himself in the eye. Yep, you guessed it the next day they came out with a memo regarding a new policy. You could no longer walk down the hall while putting on your safety glasses. You must be stationary to install any safety gear...because one guy with a single digit I.Q. can't walk and put on safety glasses at the same time.
