TRENTON - (AP) - A state appeals court has upheld a NewJersey law that requires new drivers under 21 years old to displayred decals on their vehicle license plates.

The measure is known as "Kyleigh's Law." It's named for a NewJersey teenager killed in a 2006 crash and is meant to aid policein enforcing the state's system of restricted privileges for youngdrivers.
Parents of two Morris County teenagers filed a lawsuitchallenging the 2010 law. They claim it allows police to unfairlytarget young drivers and leaves them vulnerable to criminals andsexual predators.
The court said the law is a reasonable safety enforcementmeasure.
