The recent consultation related specifically to proposals for new cycling offences.

In October last year the Government provided its response to the consultation on serious driving offences and confirmed its intention to increase the maximum penalties for causing death by dangerous driving and causing death by careless driving while under the influence of drink or drugs from 14 years’ imprisonment to life and to create a new offence of causing serious injury by careless driving.
