Road penalties 'must fit offence'

PUBLISHED April 26, 2004

The Automobile Association has called for a better understanding of the criminal laws that govern driving.

The motoring organisation is concerned the law does not reflect the variety of circumstances under which crashes causing death or injury can occur.
The AA says some drivers convicted of serious offences are walking free from court, while drivers at the other end of the scale are sent to prison.
