The last, and most innovative of the BTA’s three legislative proposals is just one minor step from being an official bill.
Their “vulnerable users” proposal will be turned into the House Judiciary Committee in Salem today.
Here’s the official wording of the bill summary:
- Creates offense of infliction of serious physical injury or death to vulnerable user of public way. Punishes by maximum of one year’s imprisonment, $6,250 fine, or both. Creates driving diversion agreement.
Here’s the draft text of the bill in PDF form.
Stay tuned for more updates on this and other legislative news soon.
