N.J. Police Issue Few Tickets To Teen Drivers For Failing To Display Red Decals

teen-driver-decal-22-150x150Police in New Jersey have issued 1,838 tickets to teen drivers for failing to display red decals in the first year of the law that makes it easier to spot young motorists. Officers have written 3,309 summonses to teens who have more passengers in the vehicle than the Graduated Driver’s License law allows. Another 2,810 tickets were written for teen drivers out after curfew.

New Jersey Traffic Safety Officers Association executive director Anthony Parenti said the decals aren’t popular with police.

Teens felt the stickers enable police to profile them and some parents feared the decals would alert child predators.

There is a $100 fine for failure to display the decal. AP

  1. unfair discrimination, if the kid passed the test, he/she drives legally. It’s enough that the insurance is sky high & the kid is nervous. How many hooligans, mobs, gangs etc. are driving out there illegally. Do you think the ones with guns and contraband are going to put on their little red stickers? We should all put on these red stickers! every single one of us! let them try stopping everyone!
