But without the state, who would ban drinking coffee in the car?
If the New Jersey Democrats get their way, it will soon be illegal to drive while drinking coffee.
From the below linked article: The real issue is that we need to try, in every way, to discourage distracted driving, it’s dangerous,” Assemblyman John Wisniewski, a Democrat in Central Jersey, who sponsored the bill, told The Star-Ledger. “Education and enforcement can change the attitudes of people.”
First, there is the lunacy of trying to make a law against everything that is dangerous.
Second, there are so many distractions you couldn’t ban them all. Billboards, passengers, the radio, temp controls, seat adjustments, attractive people driving in the lane next to you, food & drink, GPS, etc.
Third, there is the idea that the state should be trying to “change the attitudes of people”.
