Ah yes. All the ramifications of murdering someone with my car didn't matter before but now that there's a slim chance I'll have to pay child support I guess I better put my phone down.

The issue is that all too often, there are no consequences at all for distracted driving, even when it results in a fatal accident. This used to be the case with DUIs as well until the legal system started testing it like the serious crime it is

Totally true. It's just also true that this form of justice doesn't work and government needs to be taking a preventative approach ie. regulating industry/creating safer roads rather than a reactive approach. One approach only hurts the average person, the other hurts power and big money.
