Aaron Cohen Bill signing

Gov. Rick Scott is coming to Miami for a ceremonial signing of the Aaron Cohen Life Protection Act, which he already signed into law in June. It’s a perfect time to take a ride and show your appreciation to the advocates who promoted the law, the legislators who adopted it, and the governor for signing it.

The new legislation will ramp up the penalty for drivers who flee the scene of an accident with injuries. The event will be held at Crandon Marina along the Rickenbacker Causeway, where Cohen was riding when he was killed by a hit-and-run driver.
