    Motor vehicle homicide by texting

    Massachusetts Teen Aaron Deveau Found Guilty in Landmark Texting While Driving Case - Yahoo!

    Aaron Deveau was texting while driving, swerved across the divider and hit a truck, causing the eventual death of a father of three. It is, as far as I know, the first conviction of its kind. Stay off the phone while driving, folks. It's not worth it.

    Amen! I've seen it too many times at stoplights here. To think that it might be illegal for me to honk my horn and wake them up! Crazy isn't it?

    I hope it sends a message, but folks are so addicted to their phones that they'd rather risk their life or someone elses over a call or text...

    Very dangerous. Might as well be driving blindfolded.

    Saw a guy here doing it at a stoplight. The cars in front of him went and he stayed put. He got honked at and started to go, still texting. Got going pretty good in the left lane, maybe 30, and popped the curb of the center median, sending the left side of the car up in the air and the center crashed down on the curb. He came off it and then hit it again. Still texting. A couple hundred yards later he cut off what looked to be a pretty expensive BMW in an attempt to pull over in a neighborhood due to his car making funny noises. Not sure what it was, but his first encounter with the curb ended with him losing a piece of his undercarriage. Idiot.

    I can't not admit that I have read and/or fired off a quick message at a stoplight, but never while moving. And while at stoplights the flow of traffic takes precedence. I check the light after every word and toss the phone if it turns green.

    Deveau's lawyer argued that there was no evidence the crash caused Bowley's death.
    Some things are just too stupid.... I would have convicted him just because his lawyer in an idiot

    HuffPo reports the sentence is not the max of four years prison. He has been sentenced to 40 hours community service and a 15-year driver's license suspension.
