For John, BLUF: Not just coffee. Consumption of anything. Nothing to see here; just move along.
New Jersey already draws ire for not letting drivers pump their own gas. But the state might ban them from having a cup of coffee behind the wheel too.That thing about pumping gas may be restricted to highways like the Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway. I pumped gas myself somewhere in North Jersey last week. But, it was at a gas station with no C-Store.
The problem is, unless there is a big uproar over this, it would just be a trap for unsuspecting motorists. How do out of state drivers deal with this? They drive around New Jersey, through Pennsylvania. Or they vacation closer to home.
