Sentencing - Disqualification from driving - Road traffic offences - Defendant charged with dangerous driving - Defendant having record of numerous road traffic offences - Defendant disqualified from driving for 10 years - Reasonableness of period of disqualification.
A sentence of 10 year's disqualification from driving imposed on a defendant with a very bad record of driving offences, was quashed and substituted with a sentence of five years' disqualification, since the court had regard to sentencing policy indicating that an overlong period of disqualification could result in a defendant committing further offences and hamper any real chance of rehabilitation.
