ILLINOIS GRADUATED DRIVER LICENSING LAW CREDITED WITH FEWER TEEN TRAFFIC DEATHS

 

According to Secretary of State Jesse White, teen driving deaths in Illinois have dropped by 56 percent since the graduated driver licensing law took effect in 2008.  Illinois State Police records show there were 146 teen driving deaths in 2007.  Teen driving fatalities dropped to 87 in 2008, 73 in 2009, and in the first nine months of 2010 the number has plummeted to 48.  White said, “The goal all along was to save lives.”  Illinois’ GDL law better prepares novice, teen drivers by giving them more time to obtain valuable driving experience while under the watchful eye of a parent or guardian.  Teens are required to earn their way from one stage to the next by avoiding traffic convictions.  State and national traffic safety organizations have praised Illinois’ stronger GDL law as one of the best in the nation.
