NZ police alarmed at breast-feeding motorists

WELLINGTON (AFP) - New Zealand police said on Tuesday they were shocked at the number of mothers they found breast-feeding babies while driving along motorways in the country's largest city Auckland. Police said they stopped three breast-feeding drivers this month while carrying out a 10-day operation aimed at ensuring children were properly restrained in vehicles. 'They were each driving a vehicle on the motorway.

'If they had to stop their vehicle suddenly, or they were involved in a serious crash, the infant would surely be ejected from the vehicle,' he said.
