Death By Dangerous Driving

The RJ service received an enquiry from a Victim Liaison Officer from the National Probation Service detailing that there were two females she was working with who were interested in exploring Restorative Justice. Their Father had been killed in a Death by Dangerous Driving offence and subsequently wanted to ask the offender questions and talk about the future. The offender was due to be released shortly to the same area as the victims, which both parties were aware of. This was one of their main motivating factors for taking part in RJ.

Indirect work was done throughout, with the passing of messages and questions to the victims and offender in order to ensure both parties were prepared and got as much out of the face-to-face meeting as possible. After extensive preparation work with all parties, they met with each other at the Prison two weeks before the offender was due to be released. It was an emotional meeting where the victims were able to explain the impact the offence had had on them and to ask questions about what happened that day. The conference went extremely well and to quote the victims, they “don’t think it could have gone better.”
