At least she died happy. RIP.
You just have to be smart about using your phone and use common sense.
I was at a red light and had my phone on my lap; I was using one hand. A car right turned on to the oncoming lane and stopped a bit after passing me. I sensed it and looked back and it was a cop car. She saw me and I immediately put it away and she gave me the disapproval headshake and then I did a sorry hand wave and then I left. If there was any "safer way" of using my phone, I was doing it; I was able to sense her, was using one hand, checking my surroundings, and using at a red light.
Everyone's driving skills are different and my cell phone use + driving is definitely less of a risk compared to some law abiding drivers while at the same time riskier than some others.
There was a time when cell phones use wasnt illegal and I had no problems then and I have no problems now. I don't see it much different from going 10 over the limit.
Ready for the fails
