N.J. governor to sign 'Sami's Law'

TRENTON, N.J. (WPVI) -- New Jersey is taking the next step to protect rideshare passengers in the name of a Mercer County native.

Governor Phil Murphy will sign "Sami's Law."

Samantha Josephson of Robbinsville was killed in Columbia, South Carolina in March after getting into a car that she thought was her Uber.

The new law will require ride-hailing vehicles display illuminated signs, to show their affiliation.
