A bill that aims to reduce the number of bridge strikes has passed in the Texas House of Representatives.

Rep. Brooks Landgraf filed the House Bill 799 early in the 2019 legislative session and calls for holding the driver or their employer responsible for damages.

“I’m grateful to my colleagues for supporting what is clearly a common sense measure that will hold vehicle owners strictly liable for the cost of the repairs so that taxpayers aren’t stuck footing the bill,” Landgraf said in a statement.

HB 799 will now head to the Senate.
