Not only is it illegal to wear headphones and ear buds while operating a vehicle, a reasonable and articulated suspected violation of this code section (unlike no seatbelt) is sufficient probable cause to pull you over. Remember: the gold standard of law enforcement investigative methodology is having proper legal foundation to pull over and search a vehicle. Be careful, be smart.
