Chris Christie, New Jersey’s governor, has recently signed Jessica Rogers’ Law into the state’s books. The new law is aimed at reducing the amount of road rage found on New Jersey’s crowded streets. It’s named after Jessica Rogers, a young woman who was paralyzed in a car accident that was caused by road rage.
Jessica Rogers’ Law allows the severity of any vehicular assault charge to be increased if road rage was a factor in the accident. It was passed unanimously by the state’s assembly in March.
Supporters of the new legislation hope it will make people consider the ramifications of their actions before driving recklessly.
