The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act will allow judges to hand down life sentences to dangerous drivers who kill or careless drivers who kill while under the influence of drink or drugs.

The current regime only allows a maximum penalty of 14 years.

Justice Secretary Dominic Raab said: "Too many lives have been lost to reckless behaviour behind the wheel, devastating families.

"We have changed the law so that those responsible will now face the possibility of life behind bars."

Think the existing regime is correct, the Tories are just chasing votes from the "Stone Throwers". Unless you can prove intent it can't be murder IMO - if its accidental then its manslaughter. The "Stone Throwers" are those who wish to stone them to death, they just need an excuse, they exist all over the place. In Iran it might be for nicking an apple - in the UK they may be escalating this to "Stone Thrower" level. Just because there are groups a salivating idiots hanging around Court - doesn't mean we should throw them food.
