Outside the court, members of the family desperately called on motorists not to use their mobile phones while driving.

Restrictions on not using a mobile phone while driving.
\"Anyone who uses a mobile phone while driving is guilty of dangerous driving.
Killing a person, destroying your life, your family, your victims and their family only takes a second of distraction.
\"Today\'s results must remind us that every time we drive, we have a responsibility and the decisions we make can be fatal.
Our children lost their lives because of Tomasz Kroker\'s reckless behavior.
\"But because many people think we are a minor, insignificant crime, we are not the only family that has suffered --
Every day the crime that happens on our road
\"We urge you to make a personal commitment to stop using your phone while driving and make our roads safer for everyone.

\"In this case, there is no right of any court to take any measure to limit the terrible and devastating loss --
The potential life of three children and a loving mother.
\"Any word I impose cannot mitigate the terrible and permanent loss that these families will feel.
\"One can only hope that publicity around the case will make people more aware of the consequences of using the phone, not just texting or calling, you can also play music with your mobile phone or use some form of navigation software while driving.
\"In this case, there are many features of aggravated punishment.
Obviously, whether it is on the phone or not looking up, it will be distracting, obviously, the defendant did not see the vehicle that slowed down in front in about 45 seconds.
\"I can see this as a distraction for a long time.
\"The High Court judge sentenced him to ten years in prison for four counts of dangerous driving causing death, and sentenced him to four years in prison for dangerous driving causing serious injuries.
He will also be banned from driving for seven years.
Prosecution of Charles Ward Jackson said before sentencing: \"One of the issues the sentencing judge has to consider is how long the accused has been dispersed by his mobile phone.
\"This is at least 7-and-three-
Quarterly seconds that the Dash cam video shows.
\"The best evidence at the same time shows the defendant repeatedly looking at his mobile phone.
Another angle through the windshield shows fast
Vehicles line up close. \"Mr Jackson-
Ward added: \"It is clear that the accused did not look at it. It is only 0.

Adam Pearson was seriously injured in a terrible crash, and he spoke with his partner in court diplomacy.
Mr. Pearson still had to wear a stand under his chin and said: \"We have seen the lens of the dashboard camera in advance because we decided to watch it.
\"It\'s hard for me to watch.
I have no memory or memory of the accident and I really don\'t want to see my footage.
\"It is impossible to believe that people sitting on the wheels of a vehicle that would cause such serious damage would show this disregard.
\"Considering the consequences of his behavior that day, we think this sentence is too light.
This sentence is too light for what happened.
\"It\'s not something simple or irrelevant, it\'s something that can ruin life.
\"I think it\'s hard to believe when you come across a case where four people have lost their lives and three of them are young children of the same age as my own children.
\"It\'s not just phone calls and text messages.
Now the phone is more complicated and needs more attention, which makes it take longer to use the phone.
This shows that you cannot use them when you are on the wheels of the moving vehicle.
