"The Government has faced calls to clamp down on the growing number of illegal motorists as an alarming rise in the number of hit-and-run deaths was revealed. In 2004, 145 people were killed in 23,714 hit-and-run incidents. There were 119 deaths in 18,357 such crashes in 1997 when Labour came to power. This is a 22 per cent increase in deaths and a 30 per cent rise in the number of hit-and-run crashes." Source Telegraph Group Limited article By Melissa Kite, Deputy Political Editor 4/16/2006
