CT’s Graduated Driver’s Licenses Are Working

Friday, October 19th, 2018 by | Posted In: Auto Accidents

Connecticut lawmakers put into effect a set of laws affecting teen drivers back on August 1, 2008. These laws, known as Graduated Driver’s License laws, have made an impact on teen driving.

Prior to these laws going into effect 10 years ago, we saw an average of 18 teen auto crash deaths per year from 2001-2007. From 2009-2016, it dropped to just seven crashes. Compared to national statistics, it is a 40% drop in teen fatalities.

Graduated Drivers’ License laws included a required two-hour safety class for both parents and teens, improved training requirements, extended curfew, passenger restrictions, increased penalties for violations, and other requirements aimed to increase safety among teen drivers.

The attorneys at McEnery Price Messey & Sullivan continue to wish safe driving to Connecticut teens and their families!
