Dear Parents of New Jersey;
In September 1998 a Bill was passed into Law effective January 2001 regarding GRADUATED DRIVER'S LICENSE.
Since that day each time I read the newspaper I see that another teenagers life has been lost in a motor vehicle crash. Most of these accidents have been because of inexperience and/or multiple teens in the vehicle. Day after week after week these accidents are claiming lives.
On this day after reading the Asbury Park Press front page regarding a tragic accident in Middletown taking the lives of two 17 year old passengers I felt it imperative to reach out to all parents.
If the GRADUATED DRIVER'S LICENSE was in effect today these lives would not have been lost. This is a fact. But, unfortunately it is not the LAW today so therefore 1 am asking parents to act as if it were the LAW.
Protect your child! Do not let him/her drive in a vehicle with a new driver. YOU continue to transport YOUR child whether he/she likes it or not.
If your child is driving YOU make the LAW, do not allow other teens in the car. Have strict punishment where the teen would think twice about breaking YOUR LAW.
Yesterdays accident only goes to prove that if this BILL was in effect today those boys would be alive simply because they would not have been allowed in the vehicle.
We speak from experience, both John and I visit our children at the cemetery. We hope NOT to see you there.
With hope in our hearts for tomorrow's children
