Residents of the 49th Legislative District are invited to join me this coming Tuesday, Feb. 28, for my first-ever open house and ribbon cutting from 4-6 p.m. at my new Bentleyville district office, located at Big Jim Plaza, LLC, 55 Gosai Drive, Suite 112.

This grand opening is an excellent opportunity to meet me, and my highly knowledgeable staff, and learn about the wide range of services that are available through my district office, including assistance with PennDOT paperwork, PACE and PACENET applications for senior citizens, 2016 Property Tax/Rent Rebate applications and many others.

I am looking forward to seeing you there. Please share with your family, friends and neighbors.

Get Informed on New State Traffic Laws

With this week being observed as Highway Safety Law Awareness Week, PennDOT reminds motorists of several new highway laws.

The Child Passenger Safety law update, which went into effect in August 2016, states that children are required to be buckled into a rear-facing car seat until they are age 2 or meet the maximum weight or height requirements set by the manufacturer of the seat.

“Daniel's Law,” now in effect, increases the penalty for texting while driving resulting in serious bodily injury or death.

To improve pedestrian safety, a driver of a vehicle emerging from or entering an alley, building, private road, or driveway shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian approaching on any sidewalk extending across the alley, building entrance, road, or driveway. Failure to do so could lead to a fine and three points on the driver's license. It is illegal to overtake or pass a vehicle yielding to a pedestrian within a crosswalk.

Under a new law passed by the General Assembly last year, drivers convicted of a first-time offense with a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.10 percent or higher after August will be mandated to use ignition interlock for at least a year.
