Traffic Safety Thursday: Safety Over Convenience
22 October 2020
We pre-recorded today’s conversation in the studio with Lt. Warren Gosnell from the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office to discuss House Bill 5058. It had passed both the House and the Senate and was on the Governor’s desk for approval. Minutes before we started to record today’s episode, we learned that Governor Northam had requested some modifications to the bill prior to his signing it.
Lt. Gosnell explained several features of the bill and the impact it’s passing would have on the safety of citizens on the roadways. To read and/or follow the bill, click here: https://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?202+sum+HB5058
