Earlier this month, the New Jersey Supreme Court upheld a law that requires teenage drivers to display a decal on their license plate for a specified period of time. In its decision, the court unanimously overruled lower court decisions finding that the decal requirement constituted an unreasonable search and seizure and violated privacy laws.
Last week, a group of 100 New Jersey high school students gathered at Rutgers University for the state's first Teen Safe Driving Summit. Organized and carried out by a group of students, the summit aimed to reduce car accidents by educating students on safe driving techniques. In addition, organizers hoped to empower attendees to establish educational programs on safe driving at their home schools.
