The New York Times (registration required) reports that Connecticut's new driving law that went into effect over the weekend is one of the toughest of its kind in the U.S. Not only can drivers be pulled over for holding a cellphone to their ear, but those pulled over for other moving violations can also be ticketed for any behavior that distracts the driver from, well, driving.

If this distracting behavior is interpreted as including beverage consumption, could we be seeing the beginning of the end for the cupholder and the drive-through Starbucks?
