Legislation sponsored by Senator Steven Oroho making it illegal to drive under the influence of any amount of a prohibited inhalant, such as glue or aerosol, was advanced today by the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee.

The bill, S2064, is designated as “Kimmie’s Law” in recognition of Kimberly Goupil, a 16-year-old Hampton Township teen who was killed in a car crash on Aug. 10, 2007 by a driver initially suspected by law enforcement of driving under the influence of inhalants.

“Kimmie’s Law should put drivers on notice that there will be zero-tolerance towards this type of irresponsible, reckless behavior,” said Oroho (R-Sussex, Warren, Morris). “No family should have to deal with the tragedy of losing a loved one because of the selfish action of a driver who got behind the wheel while high. This bill now makes it clear that huffing and driving won’t be tolerated at any level.

Under the bill, a driver can be charged with driving under the influence if any amount of a prohibited inhalant is detected in the driver’s blood.
