RECKLESS DRIVERS SHOULD BE FACING JAIL, NOT FINES

Dear A.S.S. Editor

Interesting news about prosecutors urging the High Court to lay down guidelines to be more strict in cases where serious damage or injuries occur as a result of dangerous driving. The prosecution are asking for jail terms to be meted out to those reckless drivers who cause serious accidents.

I feel this is about time something like this is addressed by the courts. There are now more and more reckless drivers. There may be cases where their impatience caused them to drive recklessly, and thus endangering the lives of others on the roads. It is these reckless drivers that should be punished more severely for their dangerous driving.

We must always remember that when we are driving on the roads, our vehicles can become killing machines. We have to take the impatience and the recklessness out of our roads, for they can be a danger to anyone who uses the road.
