Woman Cited for Breast-Feeding and Driving on I-5

Okay, I've seen a LOT of stuff going on while people are driving. I've seen a guy brush his teeth, a woman blowing up balloons, a young woman changing her clothes and even a teenager eating cereal. But this is a new one. A Mountlake Terrace, WA woman was recently stopped on I-5 for breastfeeding while driving.

According to the Seattle PI,the woman was feeding her 1-year-old son to keep him from crying. She was written a $136 ticket for having an unrestrained child. And, that's not even the best part; the woman admitted that she had been pulled over before for the same infraction.
