FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- An ABC30 viewer wanted to know: is it illegal to eat while I drive?
"Specifically, there is no vehicle code section that prohibits you to eat while you drive," said Sgt. Brian Pennings with the Highway Patrol. "However, it can be a significant distraction."
"So while eating while driving is not specifically illegal, distracted driving is," he said.
