Drivers in New Jersey could possibly be pulled over for snacking, smoking or putting on make-up behind the wheel under a bill that has been advanced in the Assembly.
The bill advanced by a 12-0 vote Monday in the Assembly’s transportation committee. It does not spell out which activities would and would not be considered distracted driving, instead leaving that determination up to police.
New Jersey National Motorists Association representative Steve Carrellas tells The Star-Ledger that the proposal is too vague.
The bill has not been introduced in the state Senate.
