Closed petition Serious injury by dangerous driving should carry a minimum of 5 years in prison!
My nephew was an unfortunate casualty of this. He was 2 at the time when a careless, selfish driver thought it is more important to use his phone whilst driving. He ran a red light at knocked out my dad and nephew. The result, my nephew being severely brain damaged and now needed 24 hour care!
The driver pleaded guilty to the offence and then further found guilty of using his phone. The sentence given - 2 year suspended sentence for each count (2 counts). The boy full of life will never live a normal life, the family will never have their once happy, full of life, playful son!
The driver has got off with a slap on the wrist and will live a normal life, whereas the boy and his family will live with a life sentence!
The sentence should change and carry a minimum of 5 years in prison!
