URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
West Virginia Bill to Permit Remote Starters Approved by Roads and Transportation Committee; Moves to Judiciary Committee
Legislation (H.B. 4233) to provide that a motor vehicle that has been started by use of a remote starter when the vehicle is locked is not an “unattended vehicle” and not in violation of the law was approved by the House Roads and Transportation Committee. The bill will now be considered by the House Judiciary Committee.
We Urge You to Contact All Members of the House Judiciary Committee (Contact Info Below) Immediately To Request Their Support for H.B. 4233
- Under current West Virginia law, no person driving or in charge of a motor vehicle may permit it to stand unattended without first stopping the engine, locking the ignition, removing the key, and effectively setting the brake.
- H.B. 4233 would ensure that a motor vehicle that has been started by use of a remote starter when the vehicle is locked is not an unattended vehicle and owners would not be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a fine.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the West Virginia House Judiciary Committee immediately to request their support of H.B. 4233.
