NEW YORK, NY – Cars and utility vehicles equipped with DVD players and televisions may be a saving grace for parents on long road trips, but in some cases, the temptation to watch porn while sitting in traffic is just too much for many drivers, according to police.

This week a Schenectady man was arrested for watching a porn film while driving, and an Alaska man who was watching porn while driving stands trial in the coming months for a fatal accident that resulted.

In Canada, a Toronto man was arrested for watching child porn while driving in a residential neighborhood, naked from the waist down, using a hijacked Wi-Fi Internet connection, and in Flint, Michigan, lawmakers have encountered so many porn-while-driving cases that the Flint City Council has decided to take action.

As various incidents continue to pop up nationwide, some police authorities believe the problem is only just beginning as mobile technology increasingly enables people to transport their private lifestyles into the public sector.

Lawmakers in certain states are even considering drafting city ordinances that would ban watching adult entertainment in a moving vehicle.

The arrest of 35-year-old Andre Gainey is the most recent arrest to take place that involves porn in cars, and while it is so far illegal to have sex in cars, according to police, there is currently no law that makes watching porn in moving vehicles unlawful.

According to a report from Ananova, Gainey's Mercedes was first spotted by a police officer driving past the Schenectady Police Station. The police officer reported that he was clearly able to see porn from the rear of Gainey's car on the DVD player.

According to Ananova, Gainey was arrested under a state law that prohibits offensive material to be publicly displayed and made visible to others. He is currently being held without bail with additional charges pending that include driving with a suspended license and watching a film while driving.

"It could've been a family that was behind him," the officer stated in his report. "Someone walking by would have easily seen this because the windows weren't tinted at all."

According to a Michigan City Council member, the problem with porn in cars has decreased during the winter, but the problem is expected to heat up once the summer months come around.

The Flint Journal reports that the Flint City Council has gotten so many complaints about people watching pornographic videos inside cars that they are pushing for a $500 fine.

In many cases, porn movies can easily be seen by children on the streets or in their yards as cars pass by, the Flint Journal reports. But many critics of the concern over in-car porn say that typical DVD screens are too small and compact to generate images that can be clearly seen from moving vehicles.

According to the Flint Journal, Michigan and 37 other states have laws in place that prohibit the act of driving a vehicle and watching television at the same time.
