Teens Comply with Legislated Driving Restrictions on Vast Majority of Trips

The study, which was published today in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, shows more than 91 percent of trips taken by young drivers follow the state’s GDL passenger restriction (1 passenger) and nearly 97 percent comply with its GDL nighttime restriction (no driving between 11:01 p.m. and 5 a.m.).
