It claimed the lives of five women heading to a bridal shower. The women could not escape because the limo did not have emergency exits.</p><p>Under one bill all limos would be required to have exit features such as rear doors and pop-out windows. A separate bill would require limos to carry fire extinguishers in both the passenger and driver areas.</p> Mon, 29 Jul 2013 20:28:59 +0000 Capital Public Radio Network 19141 at
