Last week, the Georgia Senate passed Senate Bill 10, sponsored by Sen. Emanuel Jones (D–Decatur), aimed at addressing illegal drag racing and reckless driving. The bill establishes penalties for knowingly attending and facilitating illegal drag races and increases penalties for reckless driving.

Commenting on the passage of SB 10, Sen. Jones remarked, “I am extremely pleased to witness the successful advancement of this pivotal legislation through both chambers of the Georgia General Assembly. With over three decades of experience in the automotive industry, this measure holds immense significance for me. It represents a crucial step towards combatting illegal drag racing and reckless stunt driving, thus contributing to enhanced road safety for all Georgians. I extend my gratitude to my colleagues in both the Senate and the House for their support in passing this bill, which marks significant progress in Georgia’s ongoing efforts to safeguard our roads.”

The bill now awaits Governor Brian P. Kemp’s signature to become law.
