Longer sentences for dangerous driving!
Our dad was killed in a hit and run accident on 29th Oct 2018. Dad was a proud father, loving husband and caring grandfather. We will miss dad everyday and our lives have changed forever. People drive dangerously without thinking how this will effect somebody’s life. Photos & memories all we have.

We need tougher sentencing to ensure that people’s lives are not taken away by such irresponsible actions. We the victim’s family have to live with this for the rest of our lives. But the culprits will end up in prison for such a short time, usually only completing half their sentence.

The culprits will then be allowed to move forward with their lives once they have been released. They will be able to rehabilitate themselves into society. But what about the victim’s family?
