Teen driving law goes into effect
A new law that makes it easier for police to enforce teen driving restrictions goes into effect today.
The new law, named Kyleigh's Law after Kyleigh D'Alessio, requires drivers ages 16-20 to display a red decal on their license plates or face a $100 fine.
"It just makes it easier on the police to know that there are underage drivers around, and to watch out for them," says Shelley Schwartz, of Highland Park.
The law is named after D'Alessio who died in a 2006 car crash in Washington Township. Another teenager was driving at the time.
