    @Mark, the day I wrote this piece a friend of mine was broadsided by another driver who ran a red light. If I understand it correctly, there was a cell phone involved, and she simply didn't notice the light had changed to red.

    Threaten someone with a gun or a knife and you could be facing three years in prison (in FL, anyway) for felony menacing. Threaten someone by inattentive driving, and the most you'll get is a fine. That seems like a bizarre double standard to me.
