Young driver decals mandatory May 1

Beginning May 1, New Jersey drivers under the age of 21 will have to display decals that signify their age.

The red, detachable decals are 1 inch by 1 inch and are to be attached to license plates. The decal is intended to identify the driver's age to police in order to ease enforcement of passenger restrictions and curfew hours.

The decal is being issued in compliance with "Kyleigh's Law." The law is named for Kyleigh D'Alessio, a 16-year-old killed in a 2006 Washington Township crash in which another teen was driving.

The Division of Motor Vehicles is charging $4 for a pair of the stickers.
