Bolton News launched their Drive for Justice campaign last year after a man caused serious injury to a young girl due to dangerous driving and received a 26 month sentence.
David Cameron has stated that he believes this area of the law needs to be reviewed as the sentencing for dangerous driving offences is sometimes not harsh enough. Currently, the maximum sentence for a dangerous driving offence is two years imprisonment, despite the severity of the injuries caused to a victim. The punishment for dangerous driving will be reviewed in the Sentencing Reform Bill and harsher penalties may be enforced.
