America Wants To Ban Eating & Drinking In The Car
A debate has begun in the U.S. on whether it should be legal to eat and drink while you drive. If this law passes, we will see most Malaysians in the U.S. leaving the country. Look at our inner city roads in the morning traffic. Every other driver is eating or drinking. Having their quick and easy breakfast in traffic jams. Then the long highway drives. Eating in the car has become a normal practise despite the issue of crumbs attracting ants and spilled sweet drinks staining the upholstery.
A trio of New Jersey lawmakers in U.S. want this eating and drinking practise banned, saying using your car as a mobile restaurant is an extremely distracting practise.
The calls come after the release of the results of a British study by the Brunel University that found handling food on the go can double the risk of an accident.
The trio of Assemblymen want the practise outlawed and fines of up to USD800 imposed on those who choose to chew, or sip, and drive. But it’s not just eating and drinking that the trio want federal regulators to ban, they say any activity unrelated to the actual operation of a motor vehicle should be outlawed.
