Description

Department of Transportation; traffic incident response and management. Allows individuals or entities acting on behalf of the Department of Transportation to operate as needed in response to traffic incidents and to access and to remove from moving lanes on a highway vehicles and cargo that are impeding traffic flow due to a traffic incident. The bill requires a driver to move a vehicle from the roadway after an emergency, accident, or breakdown that did not result in injury or death if the vehicle is movable and the driver is capable of safely doing so. Current law allows drivers to move a vehicle from the roadway after an accident if the vehicle is movable and the driver is capable of safely doing so, but does not require it. Amends § 46.2-1210, § 46.2-1212.1, § 46.2-808.1, § 46.2-888, § 46.2-920.1, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
