A bill meant to protect drivers who hit protesters during the course of fleeing a riot passed the Oklahoma Senate on Wednesday.

House Bill 1674, which passed through the Senate by a vote of 38-10, would increase penalties for blocking roadways while also providing immunity to drivers who kill or injure motorists while fleeing the scene of a riot in fear for their lives, according to the Associated Press.

The article goes on to state the following:

The bill comes in response to an incident in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last year in which a driver in a pickup truck drove through a group of George Floyd protesters blocking an interstate and injured several protesters. The driver, whose family was in the car, was not charged.


State Sen. Rob Standridge said of the incident, “The kids cowered in the back seat because they feared for their lives. That’s what this bill is about.”

The bill will make it a misdemeanor for protesters to block a public street, punishable by up to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine.

Standridge explained in an interview on Wednesday that the bill includes a provision that any harm must be unintentional, and it is not intended to protect drivers who intentionally run over people.

However, he said when protesters are blocking roadways, attacking vehicles, and pulling people out of their vehicles, the drivers must have a way to get away from the situation to avoid attacks and protect themselves.

WATCH:

Those opposing the bill claim it violates protesters’ First Amendment rights.

  1. Fine until an antifa or BLM member gets away with murder at one of these riots driving over some one they disagree with!

  2. More States should pass this. It’s wrong and cost lives as emergency vehicles can’t get through Strrets,freeways,highways should never be allowed to be blocked by protesters
