Distracted Driving On The Menu

posted by John Baibak - 

Eating a bagel might not be the same  thing as talking on a cell phone, but as far as police are concerned,  they both equal the same thing- distracted driving. 

A Deerfield officer  cited a driver, Kyle Wright of Amherst, for impeded operation  when he reportedly saw him eating a bagel with two hands while driving,  and no hands on the wheel. 

The driver received a 45-dollar citation.  Impeded operation can cover a range of offenses, like texting, shaving  or having distracting objects hanging from the rear view mirror.
