Killer drivers could face life sentences under new crackdown

DANGEROUS drivers who kill are set to face life sentences for the first time under a new crackdown announced today.
Motorists who cause death by speeding, street racing or while on a mobile phone are among those who could be handed tougher punishments.
Offenders convicted of causing death by careless driving while under the influence of drink or drugs could also be given life sentences under the Government plans.
Ministers hope the proposed move will see an increase in the punishments faced by those responsible for the most serious road offences.


Under the current regime they can attract a maximum sentence of 14 years - but the average custodial sentence for causing death by careless or dangerous driving was 45.8 months, or just under four years, in 2015.
Unveiling the proposals, Justice Minister Sam Gyimah said: "Killer drivers ruin lives. Their actions cause immeasurable pain to families, who must endure tragic, unnecessary losses.
"While impossible to compensate for the death of a loved one, we are determined to make sure the punishment fits the crime.
"My message is clear - if you drive dangerously and kill on our roads, you could face a life sentence."
