via email from NMA
Dear California Member,
Gov. Brown has vetoed a series of anti-motorist bills that were opposed by the NMA and its coalition partners in California. Here’s a brief rundown of the vetoed bills:
- Assembly Bill 2398—Would have imposed added penalties for injuring “vulnerable road users” such as pedestrians and bicyclists. Only protected non-motorized road users.
- Assembly Bill 1646—Would have added a point for cell phone violations.
- Assembly Bill 1532—Would have imposed massive new penalties on passengers when the vehicle they are riding in does not stop as required when involved in a collision.
- Senate Bill 1151—Would have enhanced penalties for numerous infractions and misdemeanors committed in school zones.
You can learn more about these bills from our previous legislative alert here.
Thanks to all California members who contact Gov. Brown and urged him to take a more reasonable stance on motorists’ issues.
