I am sorry I found your statement rather confusing especially the time range indicated in your statement?! Can you make some adjustment?

My question relates to the current online poll on Palo Alto Online which is "Do you think the law should be changed as they relate to young drivers?" It is a challenge to determine what combination of legal restrictions and other elements will create the safest environment for everyone on the road. My question was really an invitation to explore how we are doing in that regard. There are some new laws in place as of 1/1/06. Are they helping? Do we need more or different laws in this arena? Is the law appropriate and/or should we focus on other ways to make it safer on the road for all? I hope that helps clarify my post.

Although I believe action needs to be taken in some form or another, just saying that "the laws as it relates to young drivers" needs to be changed is not enough. Which laws do you think need to be changed? Or, do the laws need to be changed at all- do we need to be adding more rules or harsher punishemnts. Ivanhudsen@paloaltoonline.com said that there were new laws enacted, but what are the new laws??
