New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie refused to sign into law a bill that aimed to make younger drivers safer.
The bill would have changed the state’s graduated driver’s license program to require novice drivers to receive more supervised practice time. It would have extended the learner’s permit phase from six months to a year. They also would have to submit a log of at least 50 hours of supervised practice driving before being issued a probationary license permitting them to drive unsupervised.
Their parents would have been required to take an online or in-person class.
