Careless Drivers

Who would be in favour of a change in the law regarding charges against drivers who actually kill cyclists through carelessness! I would say that the minimum charge for causing the death of a cyclist should be at least Manslaughter. The law is far too soft in this regard. You hear of  community service of 200 hours over 12 months and a 2 years driving ban! I personally think it's bloody outrageous when they have taken a life, which also deeply affects the victim's family. If the law was tougher then hopefully drivers would be more careful on our roads knowing that they could go to prison for 5 years. Then we might see deaths and injuries to cyclists reduce. Hopefully!
