Whether we are traveling for a vacation or running through the drive-thru real quick to get back to work eating in the car has gotten a little convenient for a lot of people. I know I've done it. When you're busy at work and just don't have time to drive back and eat your meal, you just eat in the can on the way back to work. But, is it illegal?

The simple answer. No. There is no specific law in Illinois that states eating in your car while driving is illegal. Could it be considered destructive driving? Depending on what you are eating (like a massive cheeseburger) and an accident takes place you could get a ticket for distractive driving.

So, eat easy things like snacks, and easy meals, not like a sub sandwich or BBQ. Just make smart choices when you are in a hurry and need to eat in the car before you get back to work or on the road driving.
