Angelica’s Law has passed the New York State Senate.
The bill would make it a felony to drive with five or more license suspensions. It was named after Angelica Nippi, who was killed in a 2008 car crash.
The driver who caused the accident by passing a red light had seven license suspensions.
The law has been a fight for more than a decade-and-a-half.
Now, the bill only needs Governor Kathy Hochul’s signature to become law.
