Limo Party Bus Bill Advances

Posted on February 17, 2010 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

OKLAHOMA CITY — Sen. Debbe Leftwich wins approval from the full State Senate for Senate Bill 1762 which cracks down on party bus companies that turn a blind eye to drunken teen passengers.

Leftwich, D-Oklahoma City, filed the legislation after a high school in her district contacted her about the problem. Leftwich says SB 1762 would make it illegal for a person owning or operating a hired bus or limousine service to knowingly transport minors who are drinking or in possession of alcohol or low-point beer. It would be a misdemeanor with a fine of up to $500 for the driver and for the owner of the vehicle.

Those convicted of a subsequent offense would face the fine and the loss of the driver’s commercial license. In addition, the company owning the vehicle could be barred from operating in Oklahoma for one year.
