If you talk on a cell phone while driving you can get a $150 fine in most jurisdictions, plus 3 points on your licence (in NY State ), plus your insurance company will tie in to the motor vehicle computer and your insurance rate will increase. but if your eating a large corned beef sandwich or meatball hero while driving they can do nothing to you.
if you light up a cigarette in a restaurant they can demand that you leave , still pay for the unfinished meal and have you arrested and fined , however if you sit in an eatery and break wind they can do absolutely nothing to you.
If you spit on a subway platform your in for a $300 fine , but if you puke your home free.
