Banned drivers who continue to get behind the wheel and end up injuring someone "face serious consequences", the Justice Secretary has said.
Chris Grayling announced plans for tougher sentencing for disqualified drivers who kill behind the wheel and said:
I want to make our roads safer and ensure people who cause harm face tough penalties.
Disqualified drivers should not be on our roads for good reason. Those who chose to defy a ban imposed by a court and go on to destroy innocent lives must face serious consequences for the terrible impact of their actions.
Today, we are sending a clear message that anyone who does will face much tougher punishment.
