My Column on Changes to Dangerous Driving

Today, I have written a column for the i Newspaper announcing two key changes to the law on dangerous driving.

First, we will be introducing a maximum life sentence for offenders who kill someone as a result of driving dangerously, or carelessly while under the influence of drink of drugs.

Second, we will create a new offence of causing serious injury by careless driving to plug a gap in the law, especially for cases where individuals suffer life-changing injuries.
