Minimum 15 yr sentences and driving bans for Death By Dangerous Driving

Petition Details

Introduce a mandatory 15 year minimum sentence for anyone convicted of causing death by dangerous driving or causing death by careless driving whilst under the influence of drink or drugs, and impose a driving ban once released from prison of no less than 15 years.

Additional Information

The sentence for these offences do not take into account the pain and suffering caused to family members left behind. The dangers of drink driving are known too well, there is ZERO excuses for it, drugs are the same. As for dangerous driving, all drivers are aware they need to drive in line with the law, with weather conditions and within the limitations of their licence. A proper deterrent is one with a minimum sentence NOT a maximum and action needs to be taken now.
