Md. Lawmakers Push For Earlier Curfew For Teen Drivers

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — One Maryland lawmaker is pushing to turn back the clock on the current curfew for teen drivers. Safe driving advocates say it the right thing to do to keep young drivers safe.

Right now, teens are allowed out until midnight, but that could soon change to 10 p.m.

Advocates say too many young lives have been lost.

In June 2016, three teens died in a late night crash in Clarksburg, their pickup slamming into a tree.

“I just couldn’t comprehend it.”

Disagree. My son works after school until almost 10:30-11:00. This isn't fair to those trying to earn money for college or other things.

If this prevents the teens from getting jobs the dems can say they need more illegals to fill positions.
