Hit-and-run law

God bless state Rep. Tina Pickett, R-Towanda, for re-introducing legislation concerning the duties of passengers in hit-and-run incidents. Currently, passengers have no duty to do anything while a victim lies dying on the roadside.

Pickett's bill would require passengers to take action if the driver doesn't. But her bill died when the state Transportation Committee refused to release it for a vote.

I implore your readers to contact their state legislators to give hit-and-run victims a better chance of survival. Please make this bill a reality.
