TOUGHER sentences for banned drivers who kill or seriously injure others on the road while disqualified have been welcomed by Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis – but do Stafford’s taxi drivers welcome the measures too?
Harry Jones, 32, left, said: “Yes, there is no deterrent. We need to make examples of people.”
Gurpal Kang, 47, above left, said: “Yes, they should be tougher. It’s simple; why are they disqualified? Because they have done something wrong.”
Auneet Benning, 33, above, middle, said: “Of course. The current law is not a deterrent. Triple what they already get.”
Peter Stock, 51, right, said: “Definitely. They shouldn’t be driving. Also they are not insured, which puts our insurance up.”
