Write to Congress: Support the Safe Teen and Novice Driver Uniform Protection (STANDUP) Act

Congress is now considering the Safe Teen and Novice Driver Uniform Protection (STANDUP) Act, which would encourage states to adopt standards for gradually phasing in full driving privileges to young drivers as they gain experience, skills, and maturity. Provisions include:

  • No permits before age 16
  • No more than one friend under 21 in the car without an adult until a teen is fully licensed at 18 or older
  • Restricted night driving until a teen is fully licensed
  • No cell phones behind the wheel at least until fully licensed
