    Once you roll on the throttle, everything that happens is on you. Good bad or indifferent.

    But if there is harm i would come down on them a lot harsher than most current laws, where a semi driver falls asleep, runs over a pedestrian and gets "reckless driving" charges.
    Falling asleep is negligent. Pushing a car to a buck seventy is a deliberate act.

    I disagree. If you drive without staying awake that's deliberate and entirely optional. Pull over and get some zzz

    Falling asleep at the wheel is not deliberate. And you mentioned truckers. Are you an OTR driver? No? Figures, because you havent a clue what you are talking about.

    The falling asleep is obviously not deliberate, but avoiding - or not avoiding - a situation wherein the likelyhood of falling asleep at the wheel is high....is.

    No case law supports that. Short of a professional driver that doctored his log book, there is nothing about falling asleep that can be construed as deliberate. You are just adding up what ifs.
    170 is clearly deliberate, clearly against all laws in every state and nothing about doing it on a public road is safe.

    Post your source. Who is doing two years for falling asleep and killing someone. What state, what county, what year. Or is this just some "what if".

    You made a broad statement, I showed how it would work. And being in the heavy truck industry I have professional knowledge of the issue.
