Lawmakers To Consider Tougher Restrictions For Teen Drivers

A series of car crashes in Colorado that left 12 teenagers dead this past summer is prompting state lawmakers to consider tougher restrictions for new drivers. State lawmakers are expected to discuss the issue when the legislature reconvenes next week. One measures proposes not allowing new teenaged drivers to have any passengers under the age of 21 in their vehicles without adult supervision. A curfew for young drivers may also be considered. Relatives of Colorado teenagers who have been killed in accidents are expected to testify in favor of the restrictions.
