In the wake of 3 Illinois State Trooper fatalities in the first 3 months of the year, State Sen. Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) passed legislation to require the Secretary of State to remind and test drivers on Scott’s Law, which requires people to slow down, move over and change lanes if possible when approaching emergency vehicles. The Senator noted that 16 Illinois State Police Troopers have been hit this year, with three fatalities.
“First responders have an extremely dangerous job,” said Rose. “Motorists need to pull over and give them room. It’s the law and we need to do everything we can to make sure drivers understand this....
As Senate Republicans, our goal is to encourage job growth by
developing an efficient, transparent, ethical state government
with less regulation and lower taxes. We must leave a legacy of
responsible government that will last for generations.
