Quick Question: Do Laws of Morality Apply Online and On the Road?

Here's a question to rattle your intellects; do laws of Christian, if not, other religious standards of morality apply to our behaviors online or while driving on public roads? Most would say yes, but to add another layer of complexity to the query, think of how minimally [or possibly maximally] our behaviors in both worlds may yield results; cutting someone off equals a middle finger to be drawn, while blowing a red light may cause an accident, ultimately costing someone his or her life, likewise, negative status updates, tweets, or other net-based contributions may have someone feel unhappy for moments afterward, or in some cases, force the one being ridiculed to commit suicide as we commonly see with teenage girls on Facebook or other popular social networking sites.
