Last year I was witness to an accident in LJ. Car crashed turning into a junction crashed straight into one waiting to turn out. Fairly obviously going too fast and not paying attention. The driver legged it from the scene. It went to court, I could have been called as a witness but (thankfully) wasn't. Just the other day I got a letter confirming the charges. So for running away from an accident scene, having no insurance, and 'driving without due care and attention', he gets a fine of £245 and just 12 months' disqualification. Seems pretty feeble to me.
