STATEHOUSE (July 9, 2018) — State Rep. Jim Pressel (R-Rolling Prairie) reminds motorists of two new laws that recently went into effect to keep Indiana roadways safe.

This will help prevent distractions on the roads and ensure colored lights are used by emergency vehicles only.”
Pressel said with many new laws effective July 1, it is important to stay up to date with those impacting local Hoosiers, including new safety measures for motorists:
