CRASH RISKS ARE HIGHER FOR YOUNG DRIVERS
The State of North Carolina is considering changing the process by which 16 year olds receive driver licenses. State lawmakers are discussing a bill that would enact a graduated driver licensing system. In simple terms, graduated driver licensing (GDL) slowly introduces novice drivers to the driving task through multiple provisional stages before full licensure. Components of the system include three provisional licensing levels, adult supervision requirements, nighttime driving restrictions, mandatory seat belt use by vehicle occupants, and required periods of violation-free driving.
