On July 30, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed legislation, SB 127, that requires drivers to slow down and safely change lanes when approaching solid waste and recycling vehicles. Ohio is now the 21st state to pass this legislation, commonly known as Slow Down to Get Around (SDTGA).
The NWRA Ohio Chapter worked with key stakeholders to develop the bill, which was sponsored by Ohio State Senator Frank LaRose, chairman of the Transportation, Commerce and Workforce Committee.
A ceremonial bill signing is expected later this year. The law will take effect October 28.
