Anecdote: Recently, a car stalled on the highway locally because it ran out of gas. The driver did several things wrong:
1. She didn't put her hazard lights on or leave the car lights on, even though it was well after sundown and she had a dark colored vehicle.
2. She had 7 people in a small car, 4 of which were children under the age of 5, and only one of which (a 6 month old) in proper restraints.
Another driver entering the highway did not see the car in the dark until it was too late. Though he tried to swerve and break, he was unable to avoid hitting the car, which sent it into a poll. Police determined that the entering car had been going the posted speed limit or less.
The driver of the stalled car behaved carelessly, resulting in the deaths of two children and injuries to other parties. Even though her car wasn't in motion, she had failed to adhere to several safety laws. I view this incident in much the same light as somebody who drinks 4 shots in an hour and gets behind the wheel, then ends up going the wrong way on the Dallas North Tollway (something that actually happens with alarming frequency), hitting and/or killing other drivers. As I said, carelessness is still carelessness.
