Disqualified Drivers Who Cause Death While Banned Will Now Face 10 Years In Jail

5884926-large

 

The law is to be changed so that disqualified drivers who cause death or serious injuries when driving while banned will face up to 10 years in jail.

 

The changes, announced yesterday by justice secretary Chris Grayling, will see the maximum sentence increase from two years’ imprisonment for disqualified drivers who cause death. ┬áThere is currently no specific offence of causing serious injury by driving whilst disqualified.

 

The changes will be implemented early in 2015 and is the result of campaigns from families of victims of disqualified drivers that have been supported by Chris Skidmore and Steve Barclay.
