07 Dec: Assembly Approves Codey Bill Cracking Down On Those Who Enable Repeat Dui Offenders

TRENTON – Senate President Richard J. Codey (D-Essex) applauded the General Assembly today for unanimously approving a bill sponsored by Assemblymen John McKeon and John Wisniewski that would impose stiff new penalties on those caught lending their vehicle to someone with a suspended or revoked license due to a DUI.

“If you’re going to loan your car to someone with a history of drunk driving, then you should be held to the same level of accountability as them if they go out and injure someone else on the road,” said Sen. Codey, the prime sponsor of the bill in the Senate. “This is about personal responsibility and respecting the lives of others,”
