Like To Drink Coffee, Eat While Driving? One State Is Trying To Make That Illegal

Do you find that drinking a cup of joe on the way to work is the boost you need to get you through the morning? Is your early routine so rushed that you find yourself wolfing down breakfast on the road? Has your rearview become an oft-employed vanity?

Those activities, and many others, may soon become illegal in the Garden State.

According to USA Today, a new bill working its way through New Jersey's Legislature bans "any activity unrelated to the actual operation of a motor vehicle in a manner that interferes with the safe operation of the vehicle on a public road or highway."

While the law does not specifically name drinking coffee, eating food, or putting on makeup while driving, its vagueness leaves a lot up to the interpretation of traffic law enforcers. Many other activities could be interpreted as interference as well. A first offense requires a $200-400 fine.

Democrat Assemblyman John Wisniewski sponsored the bill and said, "The issue is that we need to try, in every way, to discourage distracted driving. It's dangerous. Education and enforcement can change the attitudes of people."
