Adjournment debate

Labour MP Anne McGuire led a Commons debate on dangerous driving on 9 July 2012, highlighting the case of Andrew McLean, 22, of Carnwath, South Lanarkshire, who died in a crash on the A72 in 2010.

A French school teacher caused the death of the Scottish food delivery worker by driving on the wrong side of a Borders road. Jean-Baptiste Brossett, 23, was driving in the UK for the first time when the accident happened last September.

In April 2011 a court heard how the Frenchman's left-hand-drive Peugeot 307 drifted onto the opposite carriageway of the road resulting in a head-on collision with a Vauxhall Nova being driven by Mr McLean.

Brossett was given 200 hours community service and an 18-month driving ban.

Mrs McGuire urged the government to gather better statistics on road accidents involving foreign motorists.
