THE JAGGER'S LAW

In April of 2006 A Senate measure to help protect motorists and make Oklahoma’s roads safer was signed into law by Governor Brad Henry. With the help of the folks at ABATE, the Jaggers Family, the Downed Bikers Association and motorcyclists from around the state, Senate Bill 1929, authored by Senator David Myers and Rep. Jim Newport, created the David Jaggers Law, named after a long-time motorcycling enthusiast and active member in the Downed Bikers Association who was killed by a negligent, reckless motorist while riding his motorcycle. Under provisions of this bill, any person convicted of, or who pleads guilty to, a traffic violation for failure to yield a right-of-way and who causes a fatality or serious bodily injury will be assessed a fee of up to $1,000.00 to be deposited in the Motorcycle Safety and Drunk Driving Awareness Fund. This fee will be in addition to any other fine or penalty charged against the violator.
