Put The Fries Down, Dragons

Forget the drive thru, unless you're really taking that order "to go."  
Beginning Wednesday November 27th, you'll either need to eat that McDonald's at home, in a parking space or outside the city limits of Swartz Creek.  The same is true for Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC and even that slice of cold pizza you grabbed on the way out the door.

A new ordinance in Swartz Creek makes it illegal to take a bite while you're driving, Mid-Michigan NOW reports.

Don't pick up your phone, either.  Handheld devices are now prohibited as well.  That means you're going to have to put your conversation on pause as you head into the city of Swartz Creek and resume once you've passed through.

If you've got mounted Bluetooth, you should be OK.  Mounted GPS shouldn't be a problem either, the report says.

There's more to the story! Keep reading!

It's those hands, man.  

If you've got something else in them besides the steering wheel, that's a civil infraction.  What does that mean?  We're not sure,  yet.  No fine or penalty has been decided, but for the next six months, you should expect to be pulled over by an officer and to recieve a warning.

By the way, your dog can't sit on your lap either.  Also, gents: you're going to need to shave; and ladies: you're going to need to have that eyeliner on, before you leave the house.

Swartz Creek is cracking down on all forms of distracted driving.
