The mother set up a group called 'Jake's Legacy' which was created in the hope of decreasing speed limits to 30km/h in residential areas but she said that the UFC star could have a much bigger effect on the public than her. 

She told the publication: “What I would say to Conor is that he should cop on, act his age and be a role model to all those young people that are following him.

“I would like for him be a man and stand up and say that his actions behind the wheel were wrong.

“The mobiles, and the distraction, all the things we are fighting against, he is showing millions of people that’s its cool and okay.

“Well it’s not.”

“He could use his power in such positive way that this won’t happen to other families, that this type of driving isn’t acceptable.”
