Idaho looks at tightening teen driving rules

The same day that five Idaho children died in a teen-driven car, a state Senate committee gave its blessing to a bill to restrict teen drivers, reports S-R reporter Parker Howell. Among other things, the bill proposed by two Panhandle lawmakers would limit drivers younger than 17 to no more than one unrelated teenage passenger for their first six months of unsupervised driving. Teen drivers are far more likely to be involved in collisions than older drivers, research shows. Read Howell’s full story here in today’s Spokesman-Review.
