Listen: Kerry TD Says Eating A Big Meal Is About As Dangerous As Drink Driving.

: 05/17/2017 - 13:52

A Kerry TD has compared eating a big meal to being as dangerous to driving as having a few drinks.

Danny Healy Rae is maintaining his opposition to new laws that will see an automatic ban for first time offenders who currently get penalty points and a fine.

He has previously insisted that people having three glasses of Guinness and getting behind the wheel are not causing road deaths or accidents.

And the Independent TD today insisted eating a big meal could be a factor in some road crashes:
