Motoring offences: response to consultation
A summary of the responses we received to our consultation on motoring offences.
We consulted on drafts of 12 new and revised sentencing guidelines for motoring offences in July 2022.
The draft guidelines proposed changes to reflect the increase in maximum penalties for causing death by dangerous driving and causing death by careless driving whilst under the influence of drink or drugs introduced by the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act 2022. They also incorporated new offences that had been created since the existing guidelines were published.
