Tougher penalties for dangerous drivers expected

Tougher sentences for dangerous drivers are likely to be announced in the Queen’s Speech tomorrow (18/05/16).

I would welcome tougher penalties for criminal drivers as sentences do not always reflect the seriousness of the crime and the impact on victims and families.

Together with tougher penalties, however, Government also needs to provide resources to ensure that our roads are properly policed, making them safer for all drivers and pedestrians.

The ongoing T&A ‘Stop the Danger Driver’ campaign has really raised the public profile of this issue.
