Bucks Co. Lawmaker Advocates For New Teen Driving Law

Posted on: March 10th, 2011       Attorney Thomas Newell

On Feb. 28, 2011, Bucks County Pennsylvania State Representative Katharine Watson held a press conference promoting House Bill 9 which would place additional restrictions on teenage drivers. As described on philly.com, the legislation would limit drivers under the age of 18 to one non-family passenger under 18 and would require 15 more hours of driver training.

As a Pennsylvania car accident attorney, I am very familiar with the mounting death toll caused by inexperienced and reckless teenage driving. The Bucks County legislator said accident statistics showed that the risk of a teen driver fatality increases from 39 percent with one teenage passenger to 182% for three or more.
