At a forum in Casselton tonight, a presentation showed how other states have lowered the amount of teen crashes with the G-D-L. North Dakota is the only state without one.

It would require six months to a year restrictions for young drivers, such as not being able to drive with more than one unrelated juvenile, have electronic devices, or drive at night.

“There are a million different scenarios that drivers can encounter, that can be very dangerous, and by them being protected by these provisions, longer permit phase, and a short-term intermediate phase, we've seen great results.”

There is a bill being written right now, it will be presented to the legislature in January.
