Additional Information on this law.
This law that we are looking to get passed is for newly licensed 16 year olds to not have anyone in the vehicle with them under the age of 18-21, whichever lawmakers decide, for at least 6 months preferably one calendar year after they get their license to minimize distractions. Studies have shown that newly licensed teen drivers are 4 times more likely to have an accident with one additional teen in the car and the fatality risks jumps to 8 times more likely with more two or more teens in the car. Such as the case with my son. He was with 2 licensed teens. He was behind the wheel, as he should not have been. We did not give him permission to drive, he was given permission to be a passenger. We feel that if this law had been in place we would not have allowed him to go at all that day as it would have been illegal. Thank you for your support for this law!
