Kentucky Police Set Up ‘Eating While Driving’ Checkpoints

20140207-082203.jpg… Kentucky State Police will be on the lookout for people who eat while they drive as part of Operation RAID, which will include checkpoints targeting “distracted drivers,” despite the fact that eating while driving is not banned in Kentucky.
Operation R.A.I.D. (Remove Aggressive, Impaired and Distracted drivers from Kentucky Roadways), which starts this month, will remain active for one year.

“Law enforcement will be more visible and the number of check points will increase,” reports WBKO.

“Not only just texting, but any distracting drivers. This includes eating and drinking. We are going to be out looking for those people. You’re going to see a major force when it comes time for St. Patrick’s Day weekend and holiday weekends,” said Trooper Biven of the Kentucky State Police…

This is nuts. We swallow constantly while driving anyway and low blood sugar can make people angry and distracted. Eating while driving keeps you alert and awake. These cops are going to cause more deaths by putting out the wrong message. Nuts. That’s what I eat while driving, nuts, cashews and pistachios mostly.
