Kissing while driving

December 17th, 2010 at 11:50 am by David Farrar

Marty Sharpe at the Dom Post reports:

Police are advising drivers to pull over to the side of the road if they feel amorous after a couple rolled their car while attempting a kiss near Wairoa.

Senior sergeant Tony Bates said the couple in their twenties from Hastings were driving south near Nuhaka, north of Wairoa, when the male driver leaned over to kiss his partner yesterday afternoon.

“The car appears to have veered slightly to the left, gone into a grass verge.

“He tried to gently steer out but started fish-tailing.

“He tried to correct but lost it and slid sideways into drain, where the car slid for some distance on its side before hitting a clump of toetoe and rolling, finishing up on its side. By the time help arrived they had righted the car,” Bates said.

The car, a white Hyundai Accent, was probably a write-off, he said.

The male was uninjured but the female received bruises and a possible broken collarbone.

As the Government has banned using a cellphone while driving, will they also ban kissing while driving?

Will the Herald on Sunday launch a campaign calling on drivers to have no more than two kisses while driving?

Will Family First call on kissing while driving to be discouraged, unless they are a married couple?

Will a Labour MP announce their support for no kissing while driving, and then have TV3 reveal they were filmed kissing in a car after the press gallery party?

Will a taxpayer funded lobby group emerge to publish shonky research on the costs to the taxpayer of kissing while driving?

    I’m not entirely sure that Nuhaka is the most romantic spot to try to steal a kiss. Morere hot pools maybe…, but Nuhaka?!

    No talking on cell phones, eating burgers, leaning back to wallop the kids who are playing up on a long trip, driving tired and now no kissing. What next? No getting a blowjob while driving?

    This is what happens when chicks don’t go down. If she’d had her head in his lap, at least he’d have been able to keep his eyes on the road… albeit with a few sudden spurts of acceleration every now and then.

    Will require inventive writing on the insurance claim form. Always best to go with the wandering stock line. I’m sure the couple will always be remember for their adventures, locals and friends tend to take great delight in this sort of stuff.

    Will Flikoff claim he has never kissed during driving only to have a National driven TV3 sting release pictures of him doing just that?

    Or will NACT just raise the excise on kissing in an attempt to discourage it? :-P

    Will a Labour MP announce their support for no kissing while driving, and then have TV3 reveal they were filmed kissing in a car after the press gallery party?

    Surely not, after all, the perkbuster is a minister of the government now! :-P

    What a fail thread. Get a life, bitches!

    What next? No getting a b____ while driving?

    The idea of people driving with this sort of distraction makes me very angry… mainly because it’s not fair that others get that form of treatment, and I’m not.

    @Brian Smaller.
    I think a compromise is needed. How about it’s okay to receive a BJ when driving but not okay to give one while driving?

    Perhaps Ruth Dyson will suggest that the government will pay for kisses for people who can’t afford them? “It’s quite a small amount of money for the Government. It’s quite a large amount of money for the [deserving people who can't get kisses]”

    See the lyrics of this 1959 pop song:

    Presumably it is not now politically correct.

    Years ago a cop ticketed a driver for reading the “Herald” while driving – presumably for driving without due care and attention.

    The “Herald” said that it did not expect such devotion from its readers.

    Read a story about a blow job when driving – true story. They had an accident and both killed. He was missing an appendage. Guess where they found it?

    I still believe the biggest hazard when I drive is my kids trying to kill each other in the back seat or the extremely attractive young lady with the enormous rack putting her wheely bin out.
    Seriously this no cellphones and no getting blowjobs while your driving shit is a fucken joke. What a nation of poofters we’ve become

    Nose picking should be banned in cars. It is offensive, and a waste of economic resource.

    Tax should be placed on any visit to the take-away that results in food being consumed in said car/van.

    Just outrageous.
