Georgia Man Receives a Cheeseburger Consumption Citation
A Georgia man was recently cited for distracted driving after an officer observed him consuming a burger behind the wheel.
Madison Turner of Marietta, Georgia was issued a ticket for eating while driving. The officer had followed Turner for two miles then pulled him over, advising that it was not permissible to eat while driving.
Georgia state law states: "A driver shall exercise due care in operating a motor vehicle on the highways of this state and shall not engage in any actions which shall distract such driver from the safe operation of such vehicle."
Turner says he wasn't breaking any other laws, but was apparently "enjoying the burger too much [and] apparently needed to tone it down."
Turner's court date is scheduled for February 3.
My three questions for Mr. Turner would be:
1. To what are you referring to with "tone it down"?
2. What exactly did you say to the officer when you were stopped?
3. Did your burger have bacon on it?
