I am the mother of a now seven year old title girl called Jessica Bootes. Jessica was left disabled due to a crash caused by Amir Azad as he was lane jumping, causing a five car pile up. Jessica had just been measured and fitted with her car seat from a reputable company but despite this sustained life changing head injuries. Jessica had the full left hand side of her skull removed and was given only 48 hours to survive.
Our bright, intelligent little girl has had her life changed and this man has shown no remorse. I appreciate accidents happen however people are generally remorseful in such tragic circumstances but not this man!
He has been deemed unfit to taxi the roads of South Tyneside by a magistrate yet Newcastle council feel it appropriate to grant him one all but ten minutes away from where he changed our lives.
I will not allow this man to cause any more misery to any other family. This stops now! Get him off our roads!
