New law tunes up teen driving rules

August 21, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Gov. Rod Blagojevich signed into law a sweeping overhaul of state rules of the road for teen drivers, setting stringent licensing requirements.

When the bill takes effect Jan. 1, it will give parents a stronger role in teaching teens to drive by tripling the learner's permit period to nine months.

Reducing teen crashes is at the heart of the law, which places restrictions on passengers in teen-driven vehicles and limits nighttime driving.
