    N.J. officials unveil red license decals for young drivers under Kyleigh's Law | - NJ.com

    We will not be complying, until convicted DUI drivers and pedophiles are required to do the same.

    It's bad enough most small town cops have nothing better to do than chase the kids around, why give them more of a target to do so...?

    What laws are aimed specifically at younger drivers?

    The law demanding that they have "red reflective decals on their license plates" to identify them.

    I agree with the convicted DUI drivers.

    But remember, driving a car is not a right. The state could just say that no one under 21 can drive. But that would make no sense.

    EDIT: Better yet, the convicted DUI drivers shouldn't be allowed to drive. They knew the rules before they broke them.

    Wow! If you are a new driver, you must give up your 4th Amendment protection against illegal search and seizure? That's not good. Not good at all.

    How about yellow decals for those who don't have healthcare?

    I believe that L plates are required in many jurisdictions, but perhaps NJ law differs in some respects.

    I don't necessarily have a problem with putting some kind of identifying marker on the plates of new drivers, but I have a HUGE problem with giving the police probable cause to stop new drivers, solely because of the identifying marker on their plate. I am amazed that they were able to smuggle that one past the state supreme court.
