Longer sentences for serious injury by dangerous driving

This petition had 2,180 supporters

My sister Bethany was a victim in a road traffic accident in June 2015. She sustained a severe traumatic brain injury and her life will never be the same again. Bethany is going to be discharged from hospital soon and she will need 24 hour care for the rest of her life. Bethany was a fun and vibrant 18 year old and now her life has been taken away from her. My family and Bethany's friends are suffering every day. A pedestrian was also involved, himself receiving serious injuries. 

Bethany has been deprived of a future and I believe there should be longer sentences for serious injury by dangerous driving. The driver of the car received only 32 months for serious injury by dangerous driving and a 5 years and 4 month driving ban.

Our main focus now is to try and get Bethany to the best she can be, but as a family we do not feel that justice has been served. There needs to be harsher sentences for serious injury by dangerous driving especially for drivers who cause life-changing serious injuries.

*longer sentences for serious injury by dangerous driving

*complete removal of driving licence for life

*double/extended sentence if more than one victim

Please can you sign this petition and share.

I love you Bethany x
