The Government takes road safety seriously and is aware of the traumatic effects of drivers failing to stop when a person is caused serious or fatal injury. The Department for Transport is exploring options that could be pursued in this area, including, but not limited to, the available penalties, and how the offence operates as part of longer-term and wider work on road safety.
