Every out of town trip I make starts with a sausage/egg McMuffin while driving. My wife unwraps and salt and peppers it, then I eat. Distracted? I think not.

That’s what ‘knee driving’ is for…rolling cigarettes, unwrapping sandwiches and so on. Admittedly harder to do if you have a stick shift but it can be done, just try to find a straight stretch of road. My sister used to finish dressing and putting on her makeup while driving, never had an accident.
Some people are just too stupid to walk and chew gum at the same time so it stands to reason they can’t drive worth a crap no matter what they are or aren’t doing.
Texas has a law that makes it a crime to fail to control your vehicle on a public road. Yet we also have these same laws that forbid specific actions that MAY cause one to be distracted. It’s all about control and revenue.
