MP calls for tougher sentencing of rogue drivers

Clwyd South MP Susan Elan Jones will lead a debate in Parliament today (Wednesday) on the subject of road safety and the Government's proposed sentencing review.
Ms Jones (pictured), who received road safety charity Brake's award of 2015 Parliamentarian of the Year for her campaigning work, previously introduced a bill to Parliament calling for higher penalties for drivers who drive unlicensed or uninsured.
This year, she tabled a series of questions to the Government on the issue on the week Theresa May became Prime Minister.
Ms Jones said: "I met recently with the Transport Minister and over the summer I tabled a number of questions to Government Ministers.
"I finally got a commitment that the Government would announce a proper consultation on sentencing for road traffic offences by the end of the year.
"I am not giving up because every delay to this campaign is a slight to justice and an insult to the families of those innocent victims who die on our roads.
"There is a lot of support for fairer laws that will help secure justice and make our roads safer."
