Most teen drivers ignoring 'Kyleigh's Law'
Many teen drivers across the Garden State are ignoring the nation's first law that requires them to display decals on their license plates.
Fewer than one in four teens have purchased the decals mandated by the law.
State Motor Vehicle Commission spokesman Michael Horan says 59,537 pairs had been sold.
Officials say at least 250,000 drivers are required to display the detachable decals. The decals help police enforce restrictions on first-time drivers by clearly identifying them.
Violators of the new law could face a $100 fine.
Republicans in the state Assembly plan to introduce legislation that would rescind the decal requirement. Opponents say the law subjects motorists to nuisance traffic stops and might entice criminals to target young drivers.
