The sentence will punish 12 to 18 months in prison and a fine of $ 5,000.
The Senate notes the battle troops killed
Legislators have developed a bill that now sits on the governor's desk and waiting for his signature after the death couple Colorado Colorado patrol troopers in separate accidents that occurred at the end of last year. Legislators passed the law even called "the law of movement Cody" after one of the two soldiers who were killed in a few days one at the end of last year.

Less than two weeks earlier, drunk driver, who returned home from a football game in Denver Bronkase, ran for the commander "Zhamiry Yursevichav" when she tried to fill it on I-25 in Castle Rock. The offender over four times to verify the legitimacy border alcohol.
Careless driving crackdown

When they are approaching emergency vehicles and tow trucks, Colorado motorists should "act with care and caution and yield the right track, moving in a band at least one movable strip". The new law also includes utility vehicles. "To move to Cody Law" will come into force on September 1, 2017, just in time for all this traffic on the highway for the weekend of Labor Day.
