Ask your state representatives to support the Vulnerable User Bill
Please use the form below to address a short message to your state representatives. You can also add your personal story to encourage your representatives to support the Vulnerable User Bill, House Bill 1339 and Senate Bill 5326. The Vulnerable User Bill was developed with input from community members, law enforcement and other government officials following the Traffic Justice Summit in the fall of 2009.
Most drivers who kill or seriously injure pedestrians and bicyclists face no penalty other than mailing in a ticket. This bill increases penalties for negligent drivers who are committing infractions like speeding or running red lights when they maim or kill vulnerable roadway users. HB 1339 and SB 5326 would encourage the driver to appear in court, and allow the courts to use tools like driver education and community service, rather than just a ticket.
