Cyclists could face tougher sentences under new proposals

  • 23 days ago
Dangerous cyclists could face tougher sentences, similar to those imposed on drivers, under new proposals. Motorists can face a life sentence if they’re convicted of causing death by dangerous or reckless driving. A current loophole allows a cyclist to be jailed for a maximum of two years for “wanton and furious driving.” Parliament will debate on Wednesday whether to make amendments to the Criminal Justice Bill to clamp down on rogue cyclists.
