New Jersey Debates Forbidding Drinking While Driving.
Drinking Coffee, I Mean.

They're going to make you Safe, damnit, if they have to put you against the wall and execute you to do it.

The bill actually doesn't prohibit coffee drinking by name -- but it does ban "any" activity while driving, apart from operating the vehicle.

A bill under consideration in the state Legislature calls to prohibit "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." That means no cup of coffee for those sitting in traffic, no munching on that breakfast burrito, no time to groom. (No, the law does not target coffee verbatim.)

The bill is meant to target distracted driving, which plays a role in thousands of fatal crashes in the state each year.

And I'm sure it also is meant to help raise money for New Jersey's empty highway fund. (They just mentioned that aspect on Outnumbered.)
