CARROLLTON (KRLD) - There are some things you should never do while driving. Among them are playing with your cell phone, applying makeup, etc. But what about making breakfast?  

"We got a call this morning from a concerned motorist who noticed someone driving somewhat erratically. And then realized it was because said driver was busy making toast. And actually had a toaster in the car," Jolene DeVito with the Carrollton Police Department says.

She adds the caller was very concerned. "In the world of law enforcement, you get used to hearing things that you never thought you would hear.  So we had no reason to believe this was anything other than a legitimate report," said DeVito. "I suppose you can plug anything into your vehicle these days, but I can't keep two hands on the wheel and two eyes on the road, so you certainly can't do it safely."

In the meantime, DeVito hopes everyone will try to cut back on driving while distracted...by anything.  

"Obviously there's mobile devices. There is makeup. So lets just all recommit to just drive your car."
