House defeats bill requiring turn signal usage

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia House of Delegates has rejected legislation that would have required drivers to use turn signals when pedestrians are present.

WTOP-FM reports that the House defeated the bill Tuesday, even though it passed the Senate unanimously last month.

The legislation would have required drivers use a turn signal any time a pedestrian or other driver could be affected by a car turning, backing up or stopping.

Republican Del. Chris Collins said the legislation could have led to drivers being unfairly pulled over.
