State Senate passes several limousine safety bills following high profile crashes in recent years


The state Senate on Tuesday passed a package of bills aimed at strengthening safety standards and oversight for limousines across the state, following a couple of high profile crashes involving the elongated vehicles over the past few years.

Bills in the package seek to align the state’s Safe Limo rating system more closely with federal protocols, create new limo retirement thresholds and add safety features like roll-over protections.
