A woman pumping breast milk into a container while driving on the interstate was issued a warning for distracted driving.
Trooper Tim Marks was responding to several complaints of erratic driving last week and pulled the suspect car over in Newport on Interstate 95 in Newport. The reports said the car was weaving on the interstate and exceeding the speed limit.
The trooper gave the woman a warning and suggested she complete the task when not behind the wheel.
State Police troopers have encountered several extreme examples of distracted driving over the years, including a woman who was watching a an episode of the television program Gilmore Girls on a laptop, as well as drivers eating, putting on makeup and texting on cell phones.
