An OAP has been jailed for four years after being found guilty of causing the death of a three-year-old girl who he hit with his car as she crossed the road.
John Place,72, was sentenced on Monday after admitting causing the death of toddler Poppy-Arabella Clarke by dangerous driving.
Poppy-Arabella and her mother had been walking across a pelican crossing on Chester Road, Sutton Coldfield, together in July last year when they were struck by Place's vehicle.
Place, who was not wearing his glasses even though he needed them, only stopped when flagged down by another driver.
Following the sentencing Poppy-Arabella's parents Phil and Rachel released a statement saying that Mr Place's "selfish behaviour" had left them facing their own "life sentence without our little girl".
The lawyer for Poppy-Arabella's family have now issued a call to introduce a new law to prevent the possibility of a similar thing happening again.
The family's lawyer, Richard Langton, of Slater and Gordon, said: "A lasting legacy would be Poppy-Arabella's law, requiring any medical professional aware of a person's inability to drive safely to report them to the DVLA so that their licence is withdrawn."
