Keicher Backed Bill to Improve Scott’s Law Awareness Passes House

Scott’s Law is a critical roadway safety law that requires drivers to slow down and move over when passing any vehicle with hazard lights flashing on the side of the road. Unfortunately, far too many drivers still ignore this law, which continues to cause deaths and injuries on our roads.

That’s why Rep. Jeff Keicher is proud to be a sponsor of HB 4711, which requires the Sec. of State to give anyone who gets Scott’s Law questions wrong on their written driving test the facts about the law and its penalties (Up to a $10,000 fine, 2-year suspension of driving privileges, or jail time, in extreme cases). The bill passed the House yesterday with unanimous support.

“Let’s all do our part to keep our roads safe by Slowing Down and Moving Over when we see a vehicle with flashing hazard lights, so everyone can get home safely,” said Keicher.
