Automobile crashes are the number one killer of teens in America. Many believe that 16 year old's do not yet have the skill, maturity and judgment required to operate a nearly two ton machine. CNN reports today that lawmakers have introduced legislation to set new standards for when teens can drive, including restrictions on driving at night and how many passengers a teen driver may have. The bill sponsored by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-New York, and Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Maryland would withhold federal highway funds from states that do not enact these new teen driver restrictions.
