Sick, Sick, Sick
First off, it seems rather depressing to me that someone would compare a twenty mile-per-hour expansion of driving speed to the taking of someone's life. Second, attempted murder is a crime because you pre-meditated the crime and were intervened upon in your attempt to kill said individual. Also, if someone speeds a little, who cares? If someone murders someone, it ends one persons life and damages the lives of many others. Do you believe it to be a crime to bring a gun to school with every intention of murdering someone, however, someone intervened at the last second, saving the life of your target? I, for one, do.
