How is this not murder:

tl;dr - Driver doesn't have a licence, is driving a stolen car at high speed 114 km/hr, goes through a red light, kills 2 people and runs away. He only gets 13 years and with parole could be out in 8.

But isn't that what a 20yr old gets for murder these days?

I used to make a lot of work calls on the hands free while driving.  Often long calls.

Realised more than a couple of times when I ended the call, that I couldn't actually remember driving through the course of the conversation.  Have since seen a research report confirming that it is actually a thing, and is much different to having a discussion with someone in the car.

I don't do calls now, hands free or otherwise.  People and work can wait.
