Nearly half of motorists admit to eating and driving, and most of the food consumed is of the junk variety, according to a survey published today. Crisps, chips and chocolate are favoured by munching motorists, the Autoglass research found.

Autoglass spokesman Andy Edyvean said: "It's astonishing to think drivers are bombing along busy roads with a burger or kebab in one hand. It's a crash diet - an accident waiting to happen."

The survey showed that a typical driver's on-the-road monthly menu included six bags of crisps, six chocolate bars, six bags of sweets, three sandwiches, two pies, two burgers, a bag of chips, a doughnut and a kebab.
