ROAD DEATHS

 

Sir, - I seem to find that the dangerous driving laws are absolutely ridiculous in this country. Causing death by dangerous driving should be taken more seriously. Could any of your readers tell me if anyone has ever been successfully charged with this kind of driving offence and jailed? I haven't heard or read of anyone. There is either not enough evidence or else the driver is Just banned for a number of years and fined. This does not help the grieving process for anyone as it also takes years for this result to be obtained.

This is why, in my opinion, that there are so many deaths on our roads, because the punishment does not fit the crime. - Yours, etc.,
