Press Release: The American Motorcyclist Association believes you may be interested in supporting upcoming legislation under consideration by the California Assembly Public Safety Committee.

Assembly Bill 2088 is currently scheduled for a vote on Tuesday, March 29. As proposed, this legislation would mandate the immediate suspension of driving privileges for six months or court-ordered community service, as the court deems appropriate, for those drivers who plead guilty or nolo contendere to charges of hit and run in cases where a person was injured. Previously the law simply authorized – but did not mandate – any specific penalties in those cases where an injury had occurred.
