25 Jun: Senate Approves Sacco/Gordon Motorist Safety Bill

TRENTON – Summer may have just officially started, but the full Senate is preparing for winter, approving a bill sponsored by Senators Nicholas Sacco and Robert Gordon, which is aimed at increasing safety on the roads by requiring all drivers to remove ice and snow from their vehicle before heading out on the roadways.

“I see so many cars on the roads in the winter that have nothing but a small sliver of windshield cleared,” said Senator Sacco (D-Bergen, Hudson). “This is downright dangerous for both the driver and other passengers on the road. This is about encouraging people to be mindful of their own safety and the safety of others during the winter months.”
