Pennsylvania Teen Drivers – Remember The New Laws Which Apply When First Obtaining Your License

Posted On Behalf of Schmidt Kramer Injury Lawyers on May 16, 2012 in Car Accidents

March 8, 2012 -   Pennsylvania enacted laws last month which dramatically change the requirements for young drivers first obtaining their licenses.  There is now a three stage program for a driver to obtain a full unlimited license.   Below is a link to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania summary of the requirements and what a driver needs to know in order to be fully compliant with Pennsylvania’s new laws and the three state process.

It is a well known fact that teenage drivers are, unfortunately, more likely to be involved in a car accident or wreck involving injury and death. This fact exists not only in Harrisburg, Central Pennsylvania, and the entire Commonwealth of Pennsylvania but all over the country. Becoming aware of the new laws will help reduce this risk.

News reports are that five students from New Oxford High School in Adams County were killed Monday in a two-vehicle crash on Route 94, Adams County, moments after school let out for the day.   The five teenagers who were killed Monday afternoon March 5, 2012 on Route 94 in Adams County were all students at New Oxford High School, according to the Adams County Coroner.  The victims were identified as Oscar Banda, a junior at New Oxford; Chelsea McFalls, a sophomore; Casey Sheridan, and a junior; Anthony Campos, a junior, and Diego Aguilar, a New Oxford High junior.  Felix identified Oscar Banda as the driver of the blue Saturn in which the teens died.

The investigation is ongoing.  If you have information on the accident please contact the police.  Further details are in theLebanon Daily News at the link below:
