Stupid Driving Tricks

Breastfeeding driver stuns police

Catherine Donkers, 29, was nursing her baby daughter on an Ohio highway while driving at 65mph.

She said she did not stop because she was talking on the phone to her husband and taking notes on the steering wheel.

Let's see. Endangering the life of your child. Endangering your own life. Not paying attention while driving. And quite obviously, not in complete control of the car...knees do not equal steering appendages. What could she possibly say in defense of this?

"When I haven't done anything wrong, why would I... sacrifice my principles?" she told local radio, adding she felt her civil rights had been violated.

Oh yes, her civil rights. Where, exactly, is it listed as a right for someone to be a complete dumbass? I mean, I know we have more than our fair share of them, but I never knew it was codified.

More importantly, how fucking hard is it to just pull over to the side of the road for 5 minutes (or however long it takes) and feed your child?! So what if you're late to wherever you have to be. At least you're not driving like a maniac.
