Fix our failing road justice laws – Cycling UK
Cycling UK is calling on the Government to fix our failing traffic laws by amending the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, which is currently passing through Parliament but we need your help.
As well as calling for a full review of traffic offences, the proposals include changes which would:
• Stop drivers routinely avoiding a driving ban after accruing 12 penalty points by claiming it would cause them ‘exceptional hardship’.
• Create a new offence for serious hit and runs, where a driver knows or ought to know someone has been seriously or fatally injured.
