Do I make a bracha rishona on food I am eating as I am driving? Do I make a bracha acharona too?
Is it preferable not to make brachos on food and eat while driving or being driven somewhere?
A bracha rishona and achrona is required for food eaten while driving. It is perfectly acceptable to make a bracha in transit, however one should not make a bracha while driving, and should wait for a red light or other stop, so as no t to be distracted from his bracha.
