I want to know the reason

What caused the driver to cross into the other lane?

I drive a truck for a living, and what I see from up here would amaze you. I am not exaggerating when I say that 9 out of 10 people that pass me have their phone in their hand, down at the center console so that nobody outside the car can see it. They don't hold it up where they can see it and the road at the same time, since they're afraid of being ticketed. They're watching videos, texting, browsing the web, dialing to make a call, you name it. Even half of all truckers that I see are doing something on their phones.

It's time that the penalties include mandatory jail time for distracted driving, along with a 4 figure fine. Maybe THAT will get someone's attention.
