It was guaranteed that medical bills would be paid whether or not drivers were at fault for the accident.
First new change, if you don't see a medical provider within 14 days of the accident you lose your PIP benefits.
Also the medical treatment you received must be prescribed by a licensed physician.
Another law drivers need to be aware of, it is now legal to alert oncoming drivers if police are out in speed traps.
Drivers were shocked to learn that flashing your headlights was illegal but a lawsuit resulted in a judge determining the law was unconstitutional.
A new law prohibits drivers from operating swamp buggies on state roadways unless allowed by local governments to drive on sidewalks that are least 5 feet wide.
