SnarfVader: So, this is different than the myriad of other distracted driving laws how? If you aren't paying attention to your driving and you do something stupid, you already can be pulled over most anywhere no matter what the source of the distraction.
oldfarthenry: It's illegal in Ontario as well - not that any drivers here give a sh*t.
Too Pretty For Prison: I don't drive much on the highway anymore. Yesterday I had to run an errand though so I got to experience Highway 64, Highway 270, and Highway 170 all in one day in St. Louis. Dude on a cell phone in the left lane going 55 in a 60 zone and oblivious he was blocking the lane. One woman reading a farking book balanced on her steering wheel. Two guys in two pickups in the left and center lane with their windows rolled down talking to each other. A woman with a toddler standing in the front seat. A guy in a Yukon holding a cup of coffee, a cigarette, and a cell phone all at the same time (he was technically only using half a lane since he was mostly driving on the shoulder, so I guess I should cut him some slack). That was just in 25 minutes of driving. No wonder people get killed.
CaptSS: How else am I supposed to eat my Bananas Foster if I don't want it getting cold. Sheeesh!
hobnail: I was following some dumbfark this weekend, on a four lane divided surface street (Highway 55 in Golden Valley for Twin Cities Farkers). I noticed 4 geese moseying across the road ahead of us, blocking the entire left lane, and started slowing down, assuming that the car in front of me would slow down-- nobody wants to hit a big Canada goose, let alone 4, they will destroy your radiator among other things.The guy never even touched his brakes. I can only think that he was looking at his phone (we had just left a stop light so there weren't any cars in front of us). 3 of the geese got out of the way in time but the 4th was not so lucky. I'm sure it died eventually but it was dragging itself around in a circle and suffering horribly.Then, of course, the dumbfark panicked and hit his brakes, probably thinking WTF did I just hit, and not knowing what to do . Eventually he pulled off into a turn lane to figure out what had happened.Moral of the story? Keep your eyes on the damn road! And if you do hit something, don't stop in the middle of the road, pull over to where it's safe./not so CSB//yes, I am mad
Geotpf: I see a lot of dumbasses on the road all the time when driving to and from work, and my office is just two stop lights away from my house.
Red_Fox: Ok that's cool...I'll stop when cops stop talking on their cellphones and using their laptops while driving./fark their double standard.

JohnCarter: Population of Huron - 13k - what else do they have to look out for
NewWorldDan: JohnCarter: Population of Huron - 13k - what else do they have to look out forAnd there's nothing around it for miles and miles. From Huron it's about 45 miles to the next largest city - Mitchell, home of the Corn Palace. All they got in Huron are fat chicks that fark like it's going out of style.

Keeve: I hope the law is better written than the article. So eating pizza is ok as long as it DOESN'T affect your driving, and burgers, breakfast cereal, lobster thermidor, etc. are always ok? Check
