Economists say that the perfect crime is vehicular homicide. If you are not drunk or high, the odds of being charged with anything are very very low. Even if you rear-end a child at a stop sign or smash into them in a sidewalk, if you are not drunk or high in many jurisdictions a crime has simply not been committed!

Wow, so it's not illegal to be a bad driver as long as you're sober?!

Something about that doesn't seem right.
