SB 76 - This act imposes additional surcharges and driver's license suspensions on any person failing to yield the right-of-way when the violation results in physical injury, serious physical injury, or death to a person. In addition to the normal penalties, a person violating this act which results in physical injury will be assessed a surcharge $200 and may have his or her driver's license suspended for 30 days. If a serious physical injury results, a $500 surcharge will be imposed and a 90 day license suspension may be imposed. If the violation leads to a fatality, an additional $1,000 surcharge is assessed and a six month license suspension may be imposed. The additional surcharges are deposited in the motorcycle safety trust fund.
