WV Governor Signs Law: “Slow Down to Get Around”

Posted August 11th, 2014

WV Governor, Earl Ray Tomblin ceremonially signed a new law cracking down on reckless driving around waste and recycling vehicles.  The bill (Senate Bill 378) was authored by State Senator Donald Cookman of Hampshire county and endorsed by the National Waste & Recycling Association.  The law REQUIRES WV drivers to slow down to 15 mph when passing a stopped waste or recycling vehicle.

Gov. Tomblin held the bill’s commemoration ceremony at the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office in Martinsburg in memory of local sanitation worker Jeremy Tabler, whose tragic death on the job in March 2013 inspired Sen. Cookman, his representative, to push for safety reforms.

“The ‘Slow Down to Get Around’ bill was a result of Jeremy Tabler’s tragic death. This legislation, which I refer to as ‘Tiffany’s Bill,’ would not have become law if it had not been for the perseverance and dedication of Tiffany Tabler, Jeremy’s widow, and their two daughters, Annaliese and Jewelia, as well as their attorney, Ron Harman,” Cookman said.

Tabler is survived by his wife and two young daughters, who were present at the bill signing.
