Colin B. Foote Act: Enhanced Penalties For Multiple Moving Offenses
On June 30, 2010, the Colin B. Foote Act became law in Rhode Island. Today, any driver convicted of four or more moving offenses within 18 months could potentially face a host of enhanced penalties, including a $1,000 fine, 60 hours of driver retraining, 60 hours of community service and a loss of license up to two years.
If you or someone you know has been charged with four or more moving violations within 18 months and faces those enhanced penalties, it is vital that you seek competent legal advice immediately. The attorneys at Lynch & Pine have a wealth of courtroom experience.
