The reform of the penal code is approved in the congress #porunaleyjusta

Congress raises penalties for drivers who cause accidents with victims

The text includes as a novelty the creation of the crime of abandonment of the place of the accident, which will be punishable by between six months and four years in prison and from one to four years without driving if the driver flees after causing a fatal accident or with injuries

As reported by the Ser network, the Plenary Congress of Deputies approved on Thursday a reform of the Criminal Code which hardens punishments to reckless drivers at the wheel that cause accidents with dead or injured, so that they will face up to nine years in prison if they cause several deaths or up to four years in prison if they leave the place of the disaster, as well as victims and cyclists.

The initiative is a Proposal of law presented by the PP in June 2017 from the campaign 'For a just law', flagged by Anna González, who lost her husband after being hit by a truck while riding a bicycle on the shoulder and whose driver left the scene and fled, but was later arrested and later released. The truck driver never got to condemn because the cyclist died on the spot and the law does not contemplate this situation as an omission of relief.
