Last Monday, the Senate Transportation Committee approved two bills addressing transportation safety. Senate Bill 238, filed by Sen. Thad Altman, would require child restraint devices for children up to age seven or until they reach four feet, nine inches. Senate Bill 244, filed by Sen. Mike Bennett, would limit the left line of the roads, streets, and highways to a passing lane. Drivers who fail to move to the right to yield to traffic traveling at a higher rate of speed would receive a moving violation. Both bills are next scheduled to be heard in the Senate Criminal Justice Committee on Tuesday, February 22.
