New-drivers, New laws Jan 1st

Quote:
The Illinois secretary of state has administered a graduated licensing program for new drivers for many years, but effective Jan. 1, the program is changing for the better in that it implements a true GDL system that requires new drivers to earn more responsibility.
Some notable changes effective Jan. 1 are:
The instruction permit phase is now nine months, up from three.
Student drivers must complete six hours of actual on-street driving with a certified instructor.
Nighttime driving restrictions are moved up an hour to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 11 p.m. on weekends.
New drivers are now limited to only one unrelated teen passenger in the car for a full year, up from six months. Drivers and passengers can now be ticketed for violating this rule.
Drivers under 18 who are ticketed for traffic violations must now appear before a judge with a parent or guardian to get court supervision.
Young drivers involved in street racing will face a complete revocation of all driving privileges and vehicle impoundment.
The Naperville Police Department fully supports Secretary of State Jesse White in these important changes to the program. We anticipate including the details of the GDL program in our new driver safety education programs offered to all of our local high schools, and as always, the Naperville Police Department will enforce the rules of the road fairly and with the utmost concern for public safety.

about time they setup a structure.

I'm all for the 'maximum one teenager' in the car rule. I got into three accidents within the first few years of having a license with a bunch of people in the car because I was showing off/screwing around.

Hopefully, this will save people's lives and reduce accidents.

Oh NAWSSSS!!!! The government is weening us of our freedom. This is how it starts, first they get our youth to succumb, next they come for us. Don't let the man grind you down.

Some of the rules seem harsh, but you can understand why they were implemented. I know for me if I was PTG's age and had a gixxer and a fast car, I would have acted a fool. These rules will help curb that, and these kids will be treated like everyone else in a few years time . So, no one is BANNING them forever like the gun laws, etc.
