Kyleigh's law prompts protest from students

As Kyleigh's Law continues to stir debate among students and parents around the Garden State, a group of students from Mount Olive used Facebook to rally against the law.

The students planned a rally against the new law, which requires teen drivers with provisional licenses to display red decals on their license plates. The group urged people to participate in the protest at the offices of lawmakers who voted in favor of the measure.

The Facebook page indicated that hundreds were taking part. It was not reflective of the actual turnout, but the students that attended were passionate about their cause.

Teen drivers who do not display the decals face a $100 fine.
