Yes, it’s day that this woman lost her teenage daughter in a car accident. So of course the soltion is less freedom for teenage drivers. We arleady have some sort pf graduated drivers license program that chokes off enough freedom from teenage drivers. It wasn’t enough to raise the driving age, no we had to put in all sorts of restrictions about the number of poeple who can be in a car and when they can be driving.
Now teenagers will have some sort of scarlett letter on their license plates and windshields so it will be easier for police to harrass them. This bill is preposterous because it only applies to teenagers. What if I get my first license at the age of 21? I’m a new driver with just as much experience as some 17 year old. Laws like this are the natural response of the nanny statist. They see a tragedy and think government can invent a law from stopping it from happening again. Meanwhile countless others have to lose freedom to pay for one families tragedy. The idea that notification stickers will prevent accidents is laughable. How? The only thing it is going to make it easier to do is hand out tickets.
