Drivers who kill someone in the most serious cases of dangerous and careless driving will now face life sentences.
Causing death by dangerous driving, or death by careless driving while drunk or on drugs, will carry the top-level punishment.
About time too, in my opinion.
Most people who kill someone when driving only get three or four years in prison, which on good behaviour, would mean they would be out in half of that. This new life sentence will stop that nonsense, with one obvious caveat. We have no life sentences in the UK. Life does not mean the rest of someone's life, should it?
