Man Gets Pulled Over By Cops After He Was Seen Eating While Driving

Updated on January 19, 2015

A man over in Cobb County, which is over in America and located in the great state of Georgia, which everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime (no seriously, it is an awesome state, but we'll save that for another time), has received a ticket for eating and driving!

Read on to find out more.

Pulled Over For Eating A Burger

The guy in question is a man by the name of Madison Turner, who says that he was just driving down the road and then got pulled over by the cops! We can imagine that Mr. Turner was probably wondering what he was being pulled over for? Was he speeding? Was he swerving a little bit? Nope, neither. It was because he was holding a burger, chilling and just eating it while driving along the road. In other words, he was eating while driving. Well, that got him pulled over.

Turner said the cop that pulled him over told him he couldn't just go on down the road eating a hamburger. Oh, and the cop allegedly didn't just say it once. Nope, not twice either. He said it three times!

To be fair though, Turner was busted under a driving while distracted law, or something among those lines.

It Was A Burger From McDonald's

In case you're wondering what type of burger he was indulging in, it was a double quarter pounder with cheese, from McDonald's, which is very good by the way! Anyway, the officer told Turner he observed him for two miles, and during that time he was munching on the burger.

"Can't Just Go Down The Road Eating A Burger"

On the ticket, there is a section for comments, and the officer wrote in that section. He wrote that Turner was eating while driving.

We should mention that the law in question pretty much says that those operating a motor vehicle in Georgia should steer clear of any actions that would distract the driver from operating their vehicle safely.

Anyway, Turner is fighting this and he will show up in court (we assume) on Feb 3., so it will be interesting to see how this one plays out and how the judge sees this whole thing.

Our Opinion

We don't really know what to make of this, but we do think that driving and doing anything else while driving can distract drivers, and yes, this includes even eating a burger or a meal from a fast food restaurant. Therefore, we don't really recommend eating while driving.
