Six months ago Maceo Kemp killed my friend Seth Vidal.  Yesterday he was sentenced to serve six more months in prison, at which time he will have been incarcerated for a total of one year.  The legal process is complete, but it doesn’t feel like justice.

Beyond the base desire for retribution in this one case, more severe consequences for bad drivers (yes, this includes you texters, drinkers, swervers, speeders, entitled assholes, etc) could help dispel the cultural myth of omnipotence behind the wheel and encourage mindful operation of a machine that worldwide takes thousands of lives daily.
