NJ's Supreme Court reviews Kyleigh's Law
TRENTON, N.J. - May 9, 2012 (WPVI) -- The New Jersey Supreme Court is considering whether young drivers need to display red decals on their license plates.
The justices on Tuesday heard arguments over whether "Kyleigh's Law" violates privacy and leaves young motorists vulnerable to predators.
The 2010 law is named for a New Jersey teenager who was killed in a 2006 crash and is meant to aid police in enforcing restricted privileges for young drivers.
The state attorney general released a report last month in which only one incident was reported to police. A 17-year-old female whose vehicle had a red decal was stopped by a man in a dark car with flashing lights, impersonating a police officer.
An appeals court in 2011 upheld the law.
The state Supreme Court will decide the case later this year.
