We will encourage drivers to stop using their decals as a way of peacefully protesting until our plan is put into action. You can help!
To raise awareness among the public, we can make posters, spread the word on social media and reach out to others at school. In high school drivers education classes, new lessons on Kyleigh’s Law can be implemented to teach new drivers, from the beginning, the effects of the law.
We can ask friends, teens, parents, and other citizens to sign a petition in order to influence policy makers to make changes to a dominant yet flawed law in the state of New Jersey.
In the Community
We will appeal to the public’s emotions and hope that their love for their children persuades them to support the policy.
We will communicate public opinion to policy makers through calls, letters, and meetings. We want our voices heard about this topic and will communicate as much as possible to get our plan done. The major key is making sure the communities, that make up our great state of New Jersey, have their voices heard. If the majority of people can voice their opinions and fear over the law, the policy makers in New Jersey will not be able to do anything but listen.
We want to eliminate the requirement of red decals on a young driver’s license plate, in order to reduce the risk of discrimination and prejudice of new drivers.
We will persuade policy makers to implement our solution by alerting them of the dangers the sticker element of the law places on young drivers. We will tell them about how the sticker targets young drivers as others know that a young driver is behind the wheel. Additionally, we will warn them about what will continue to happen and what could happen if they do not abolish the decal of the law (predators attacking and stalking young drivers, police unfairly targeting young drivers, teenage drivers being bumped by other cars on the highway, etc). A policymaker's main priority should be to listen to public opinion and ensure the safety of young Americans. Finally, we will tell policymakers about other opponents of Kyleigh’s Law and show them the various Facebook pages and other groups that were made as a negative response to Kyleigh’s Law.
