COURT UPHOLDS LAW REQUIRING DECALS FOR YOUTHFUL DRIVERS
Unless New Jersey lawmakers decide otherwise, drivers under age 21 will continue to have to display little red decals on their license plates if they want to remain street legal. The state Supreme Court on Monday, in Trautmann v. Christie, A-16-11. upheld “Kyleigh’s Law,” finding the decal requirement does not violate the federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act or federal and state constitutional guarantees of privacy and equal protection and against illegal searches and seizures.
The law, which took effect May 1, 2010, also sets limits on the number of passengers in youthful drivers’ cars and generally bars such drivers from the road between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
