Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: December 9, 2014 10:12 AM
From: Senator Gene Yaw
To: All Senate members
Subject: Requiring Passengers to Render Aid
In the near future, I will be re-introducing legislation, Senate Bill 357 of last session, which will amend Title 75 (Vehicles) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, providing for the duty of passengers in a vehicle to render aid to any person injured in an accident.

Currently, the only requirement of a passenger to render aid to an injured person in an accident is if the driver is physically unable to do so. My legislation would require a passenger to give reasonable assistance, including making arrangements for the injured person to get to a physician, if the driver is physically unable or refuses or neglects to render aid.

Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as SB146
