Bill Prohibiting Grass Clippings in the Roadway is Introduced

Delegate Roxann Robinson has introduced House Bill 2193 at the request of the Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists (VCOM). If passed, HB 2193 would amend section 18.2-324 of the Code of Virginia to clarify that it is illegal to blow grass onto the roadway. Grass on the roadway can be a hazard to motorists, especially motorcyclists, and particularly in curves when the grass becomes wet.

VCOM will keep you up to date as this bill makes its way through the General Assembly. We will make you aware of all committee hearings and will provide the contact information of each committee member so that you can voice your support for this piece of legislation that seeks to improve highway safety for Virginia motorcyclists. As always, if you have any questions or comments concerning this or any other matters before the Virginia General Assembly please do not hesitate to contact me.
