Ministry of Justice written question – answered on 25th January 2017.
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, with reference to the Government's press release, entitled Killer drivers to face life sentences, published on 4 December 2016, if she will take further steps to improve the enforcement of offences related to dangerous driving.
On Monday 5 December we launched a consultation on offences and penalties relating to causing death and serious injury.
How police enforce the law is the responsibility of individual Chief Police Officers, taking into account the specific local problems and demands with which they are faced. When an apparent offence is reported or they observe an apparent offence, they will decide on the appropriate course of action.
