Man Arrested for Reckless Driving Because of... a Double Quarter Pounder

Want to eat while you’re doing 60 mph on America’s interstates? Don’t. If not for the fact that you could become the reason another driver dies, at least to avoid getting a fine. This hungry fellow sure learnt that the hard way the other day, when he was cited outside Atlanta for eating McDonald’s' popular fast food sandwich, the double quarter pounder while driving.

This man sure wasn't loving it...

Madison Turner from Alabama, claims he ordered a double quarter-pounder with cheese from a McDonald’s fast food in the Marietta area shortly before he was pulled over last week. It turns out the poor fellow was seen eating while driving for about 2 miles, which was enough for the officer to pull him over. “You can’t just go down the road eating a hamburger” is what the officer told him.

“For must of us, I think we can safely eat a burger and drive our car at the same time” Turner told MyFox Atlanta later that day. Even though Georgia’s distracted driver law doesn’t mention food, this is exactly what the policeman wrote on the ticket, which booked Turner for a court appearance on February 3.

So, the two quarter pound beef patties simply seasoned with a pinch of salt and pepper, two slices of melty cheese, silvered onions and tangy pickles all on sesame seed bun looks tasty? Well, just pull over when you chew on it, instead of driving.
