|Subject:||Requiring Passengers to Render Aid|
|In the near future, I will be re-introducing legislation (SB 145 of the 2017-18 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 SB109
