The offence of death by careless driving should be changed to "murder" when the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs

This petition calls for a raising of the severity of the offence of death by careless driving to that of murder when the driver is under the influence of alcohol, drugs or both.

The current charge carries a maximum sentence of 14 years for death of a person. The charge of murder would enable a life sentence to be given.

The death of a person in such an accident is as traumatic for the family as that of any murder victim so should be treated the same.
