Sentencing of driving offences that result in death or injury

In October 2016, the Council released a Consultation Paper which provided an overview of the current sentencing framework in Tasmania with a focus on sentencing for driving offences where death or injury was caused. The Consultation Paper provided context for a consideration of the appropriateness of sentencing by examining current sentencing patterns in Tasmania for driving offences where death or injury was caused, and by then comparing sentencing in Tasmania with sentencing for equivalent offences in other jurisdictions and comparator offences in Tasmania. It also addressed the purposes of sentencing and examined public opinion in relation to sentencing for driving offences where death or injury has been caused. The Consultation Paper then asked for feedback on the appropriateness of sentencing for these offences in Tasmania and possible reform options. This Final Report makes recommendations to the Attorney-General in relation to sentencing for driving offences where death or injury was caused.
