Penalties When Passing Stationary Vehicles

Abstract

Under current, law a driver who fails to exhibit due care and caution when approaching or passing a stationary emergency vehicle or towing carrier vehicle commits careless driving, which is a class A traffic offense. The bill adds stationary public utility service vehicles to the statute. The bill increases the penalty to a class 1 misdemeanor if the driver's actions are the proximate cause of bodily injury to another person and to a class 6 felony if the actions are the proximate cause of the death of another person. The short title of the bill is the 'Move Over for Cody Act'. (Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
