    Abstract

    The aim of this research study was to explore public perceptions of the sentencing of causing death by driving offences in Scotland, including the perceptions of families of victims. Until now, no in depth qualitative work has considered Scottish attitudes towards sentencing in this context. The research raises major questions about views of sentencing, the sentencing process and the experiences of bereaved family members.
