Pass Arizona SB1054, "Joe's Law" bill!

This petition had 6,123 supporters

On June 17, 2016, Joe Smith and friends were traveling back to Arizona from a post-graduation celebratory trip to California when tragedy occurred. A horrific accident involving a tractor trailer resulted in Joe's death and injuries to the other friends in his vehicle. 

Unfortunately, holding the person responsible for taking this amazing, upstanding young man was not as simple as it should have been. 

Every year, hundreds of people are killed and tens of thousands seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents (MVAs). These people and their families must pick up the pieces and rebuild financially, physically and emotionally after the accident. A new law will help hold those causing serious injuries or fatalities in MVAs more accountable in the eyes of the law by mandating they be screened for drugs and alcohol at the time of the incident.

By signing this petition, you are urging Arizona legislators to pass SB1054 in memory of Joe Smith and all others who have been affected by compromised drivers -- you'll help protect the future victims and families of victims. 

Please sign and circulate to help Arizona DPS and police do more for these victims!
