Maximum Sentence For Dangerous Driving

EDM number 1969 in 2010-12, proposed by Karl Turner on 22/06/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Administration of justice and Roads.

That this House believes that victims should be at the heart of the justice system; recognises that many victims of dangerous drivers are left with horrendous injuries, some have been left brain damaged, paralysed or with amputations and as long as the victim does not die the maximum sentence for dangerous driving is two years; further recognises that an increase to the maximum sentence for dangerous driving has widespread support from groups such as AA, Brake and The Victims Commissioner; notes that both the Labour Party and Conservative Party committed to increasing the sentence before the 2010 general election; and therefore calls on the Government to ensure justice for victims of dangerous driving by increasing the maximum sentence from two years to seven years.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
