West Virginia introduced legislation to provide that a motor vehicle that has been started by use of a remote starter when the vehicle is locked is not an unattended vehicle and not in violation of the law.

Legislation to provide that a motor vehicle that has been started by use of a remote starter when the vehicle is locked is not an unattended vehicle and not in violation of the law has been introduced in West Virginia. Under current state law, no person driving or in charge of a motor vehicle may permit it to stand unattended without first stopping the engine, locking the ignition, removing the key and effectively setting the brake.
