Death by dangerous driving is a recognised crime and the consequence is a jail sentence, but what about victims that are seriously injured.
Under proposals being discussed in the next parliamentary session, the new offence ‘causing serious injury by dangerous driving’ will allow judges to impose tougher sentences, anywhere up to five years imprisonment.
Victims of dangerous drivers, their families, along with road safety groups and MPs have all had a lot to say on the matter and their experiences have directly informed the changes.
Dangerous drivers need to realise the damage they cause to those around them, five people died on our roads each day last year, all drivers need to take action and be responsible drivers.
