What is it supposed to prove? You can't drive? We already know that when we see your young face driving 90mph leaning waaay back and talking on the cell phone.

A little sticker on your windshield ain't gonna help me from staying far, far, far away from you until it's too late. Kids can't drive. They think they are invincible, immortal and indestructable. I don't need a sticker to warn me of some dumb kid with a license coming up on me, the full blown cowboy-style driving skills indicate it loudly and clearly waaay before they cut me off or veer into a lane they ain't supposed to be in (while they are adjusting their cell on their ear).

I personally think noone should be able to drive in NJ until they are 21. Kids have always been clueless but I think generation Y has proven to more clueless than any other generation preceeding theirs. They rely on technology to speak/do/live for them and then they get in a car and unless the car drives for them, they are clueless.

now wait a second -- at 18 they're old enough to vote, old enough to serve in the military, but not old enough to drive ??

(same disparate treatment applies to age for buying alcohol & cigarettes)

you are clueless if you truly believe this....

if no one under 21 can drive, 80% of people under 21 wont be able to work, and 50% will have no way to get to college classes.

This is probably the worst law I've ever seen. Yeah, there are definitely some teenage drivers that are horrible, but there are also a helluva lot of drivers that are horrible that are 21-90.

Besides, can't you figure out it's a teenager when you see the Honda Civic with the bodykit and the clear taillights?
