The bill is named after road rage victim Jessica Rogers, who was riding with a friend when they were cut off by another car.

She says her friend became angry and chased after the other car. They were cut off again and their car hit a telephone pole. Rogers was left paralyzed from the chest down.

The driver spent four months in jail. Under the revised statute, a driver could be sentenced to as much as five years in jail and fined $15,000.

The bill was unanimously passed by both chambers of New Jersey’s Legislature in March.
