Christie vetoes review of young driver decal law

TRENTON - October 7, 2010

In announcing his decision Thursday, Christie said the bill, which called for a six-month review, would duplicate other efforts already under way by his administration to address concerns with the law.

New Jersey is the first state to require the decals, which identify young motorists during their year-long probationary license period.

Critics say the measure, known as Kyleigh's Law, is well intended. But they claim it allows police to target young drivers, as well as make them vulnerable to criminals and sexual predators.
