On August 1, 2008 new teen driving laws will go into effect for 16- and 17-year-old drivers.These new laws are designed to keep you safe and to prevent accidents on the roadways.With tighter restrictions on teen drivers and tougher penalties, we hope you will understandthe serious responsibilities that come with getting a Connecticut driver’s license. Passingthe driver’s test alone does not mean someone is a good driver. Frankly, those habits takepractice to achieve.We hope all teen drivers enjoy this new and exciting opportunity in their life, but remember that laws, including speeding, reckless driving, cell-phone use, passenger restrictions andthe curfew must be obeyed. We expect you to develop the skills and confidence to becomesafe and responsible drivers. If not, there could be tragic consequences.Whether you are a new driver, an experienced driver or a parent of a teen driver, youshould know the rules of the road and the state’s motor vehicle laws and policies. Thisbooklet provides valuable information on both. If every motorist drove carefully,Connecticut roadways would be a safer place for all. Make it a goal to not only learn all of the new laws, but to also practice them.Highway safety is an issue many Connecticut drivers do not take seriously enough. Accidents happen too often because of a driver who is distracted or is not experiencedenough to handle a situation.Please do your part to make Connecticut roadways a safe place for everyone to drive anddo not forget to buckle up. Please remind your passengers to do the same.Sincerely,Governor M. Jodi RellCommissioner Robert M. Ward
