Sen. Freeman has introduced SB 124 which repeals the law requiring turn signals by motorists turning or changing lanes. I’m open to the idea that this repeals a section that is redundant in some way. Maybe there is another section requiring turn signals? But, it looks like Sen. Freeman is urging that motorists not be required to signal when turning or changing lanes. I’m just going to go on the record with my controversial opinion that signaling turns and lane changes is helpful.
The bill also addresses the location of a petition for specialized driving privileges by a person whose license is suspended. There are administrative suspensions (BMV) and court-ordered suspensions. Current law appears to let you petition for specialized driving privileges when there is an administrative suspension by asking any court in the county where you live. This modifies that somewhat by saying that if you have an administrative suspension *and* a court ordered suspension, you have to request relief from the administrative suspension in the same court where you have the court ordered suspension.
