When someone carelessly injures or kills someone else, our legal system allows police officers to take the responsible person into custody. This process allows police officials to investigate the incident and determine if the suspected individual should be brought up on charges.

If or when they do take the suspect into custody, they can now face up to 20 years in jail, if found guilty under the new hit and run laws.
