This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition A lifetime disqualification if convicted of causing death by dangerous driving.
My eldest daughter Rebecca McManus was killed by a speeding drunk driver in May 2014, the driver had raced with another motorist. He collided with her at 101mph while she stood at a bus stop with her best friend (she was seriously injured) She was twenty one and had just completed her degree.
He (sukvinder mannan) was jailed for eight years and disqualified for ten years. The trial was at Wolverhampton crown court in December 2015, the second defendant inderjhit singh was found not guilty of causing death and serious injury by dangerous driving. Mannan and Singh had raced over a distance of maybe two miles always at high speed and always putting other road users at risk, it was not a momentary lapse of concentration. Mannan should never get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle again.
