New Jersey to Require Warning Sticker for New Drivers

New Jersey has become the first U.S.state to require external identification of drivers under the age of 21. A red sticker must be affixed to the upper left corner of both the front and rear license plates, identifying the vehicle as driven by someone with limited experience. Called Kyleigh's Law, it was named for a teen driver killed in an accident caused by another teen driver.

Supporters of the new law claim it will reduce accidents by alerting other motorists of a driver's inexperience. It will also assist police in enforcing curfew and muliple occupant laws already on the bnooks for new teen drivers.

Critics say it will likely increase crime by allowing predators to target teen drivers.
