Introduce Andrew's Law

      David Fox

      Tazewell, VA

Our Law Enforcement Officers in this great Commonwealth put their lives on the line each and every day when they step out of their homes, to protect us as citizens. Recently, a tragic accident took one of our own, Tazewell County native, Trooper Andrew David Fox. Trooper Fox was on special assignment in Richmond VA, and was ran over by a vehicle traveling off the interstate, which failed to acknowledge Trooper Fox and all the other Troopers directing traffic. The driver received a reckless driving citation and recently in a hearing in Hanover County pleaded nolo contendere meaning she neither admitted guilt nor innocence. She took a plea bargain of a $1000.00 fine and a 12 month suspended sentence in jail.  This is important for all others who put their lives on the line each day, to show that something of this nature is not simply a slap on the wrist.

      I myself have been a medic/ff since 1995 and over 75% of my immediate family is either Police/Fire/Rescue. We are in desperate need of legislation that will hold anyone who endangers our safety accountable for doing so. Andrew's Law will serve the community not only by punishing the reckless, but also by providing an opportunity to educate the public on the importance of remaining observant&vigilant while behind the wheel. Distracted Driving is a Killer! We must adopt any means necessary to enforce Due Regard for Safety on our roadways.
