Now that’s what I’m talking aboot.
A Michigan law recently went into effect for teenagers comparable to the driving regulations in parts of Canada. The law applies to every teenager with a level two license and aims to reduce distractions and make the roads safer.
Teenagers are prohibited from driving between the hours of 10:00pm and 5:00am unless accompanied by a guardian or someone over 21, or if the teenager is driving to or from work.
Additionally, teenagers can only have one person under the age of 21 in the vehicle unless it’s a family member. There is a limited exception allowing multiple individuals under the age of 21 in a teenager’s car when driving to or from a school event.
Insurance companies generally favor the law considering studies have consistently shown that each additional passenger in the car increases the risk of an accident. Seems like lawmakers purposely planned the law to take effect right before prom season.
