California Limo Modification Bill Signed Into Law

Posted on October 5, 2015

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB863 into law on Sunday, requiring limos be equipped with at least two rear side doors and at least one pop-out window so that all passengers of the vehicle can open from the inside in case of fire or emergency.

    The new bill will eliminate a future fire deaths in the future. There is nothing that will help the families of the victims on that day, this is a good bill but they are forgetting the party bus deaths.
