An Act To Amend Title 21 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Operation Of Vehicles On Approach Of Authorized Emergency Vehicles.


This Act prescribes specific fines for violating § 4134 of Title 21. Previously, a violation of § 4134 would have been subject to the penalties outlined in § 4205 of Title 21. The amount of the penalties in § 4205 are as follows: for a first offense, a fine of not less than $25 nor more than $75. For each subsequent like offense, a fine of not less than $57.50 nor more than $95.

This Act also makes technical corrections to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
