The New Jersey Supreme Court today upheld a controversial law requiring teen-age drivers to put a red decal on their license plates. Known officially as “Kyleigh’s Law,” I’m going to unofficially re-name it the “Teen-age Target” law. Why not just send a letter to Predators & Pedophiles R Us that the kids are out on the roads unaccompanied by an adult?
A better idea would be to install a device that disables text messaging in all teenagers’ cars. It’s just as much a violation of privacy, but much more likely to make kids (and the rest of us) safer on the roads. Governor Christie, are you listening?
