Teen Driving Bill Moves Forward

The Indiana House Roads and Transportation Committee has approved a bill that would require teenagers to have at least 50 hours of supervised driving and wait longer before receiving a driver’s license. If passed, the new rules would become effective July of next year. But it would also ban teens younger than 18 from using cell phones and other telecommunications devices while starting this July. The bill also allows teens to get some of their driver’s education online. That’s a provision driving instructors like Donna Toms of Fort Wayne say is unsafe and will hurt businesses like hers. If approved, the bill would also limit night driving for teens and reduce the number of passengers a teen driver is allowed to have in their car.
