More prison sen­tences for reck­less driv­ers, please

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

It was good to read that the red light jumper who hit the tram was jailed for a year (7DAYS, Oc­to­ber 6). This is the sort of penalty that should be ap­plied to more traf­fic ac­ci­dents. Speed­ing, tail­gat­ing, reck­less over­tak­ing are not one-off ac­tion but in­di­ca­tions of un­der­ly­ing be­hav­iours of driv­ers. If peo­ple do it once, they prob­a­bly do it all the time. So they should be jailed re­gard­less of whether they crash. Dean, Dubai
