'Due care' law went into effect July 1

A new state law that will levy penalties for failure to "exercise due care" while driving a motor vehicle went into effect July 1. According to the bill's sponsor, the law also makes it easier for those injured, or the survivors of those killed, to prevail in civil lawsuits by "making it clear that the law requires people in a car to exercise proper driving restraint around people on a bicycle and pedestrians."

The Murfreesboro Post has the full story, which you can read here: 'Sorry I Didn’t See You' is no longer a legal excuse
