Bill to ease restrictions on younger drivers dead in Georgia

| 6/20/2003

A bill that would loosen restrictions on some younger drivers who have lost their licenses due to speeding violations has apparently died for this year in Georgia.

HB185 passed the House March 5 by a vote of 165-2 and was given a favorable recommendation by the Senate Transportation Committee. However, no action was taken on the bill since April 11, and the General Assembly’s session has now ended.

Under the bill, drivers who are 18-21 years of age and who have lost their licenses could have applied for a limited license that would allow them to drive to and from work and school.
