Mike Foster has signed a bill to punish teen drivers who get in
trouble at school.
mandates that teens lose their driving privileges for up to a year
for three major offenses: attacking teachers or school employees;
sale or possession of drugs, alcohol and “other illegal substances”;
and possession of a firearm.
new law, which takes effect Jan. 1, 2004, applies to public and
private school students age 14 to 18.
can regain the license after six months by showing “exemplary …
behavior” at school and avoiding other violations of school policies.
The student would have to pay a $60 reinstatement fee.
