Bill orders review of NJ's young driver decal law

Lawmakers are pushing for a review of "Kyleigh's Law" by the attorney general. Lawmakers say that the red decals which are mandated under "Kyleigh's Law"

TRENTON - Lawmakers are pushing for a review of "Kyleigh's Law" by the attorney general. Lawmakers say that the red decals which are mandated under "Kyleigh's Law" pose a risk.

The stickers are meant to notify drivers and police of an inexperienced driver, but others see the decals as painting a "bullseye" on a young driver. Lawmakers and parents say that instead of protecting their children, the decals invite predators in.

The state Senate sent a bill to Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.), asking for the attorney general to look into how effective they've been at helping police catch young drivers not following the state's graduated driver's license law.
