In the past year, two very important laws went into effect in Pennsylvania -- a ban on texting while driving and a new bicycle safety law. These new laws apply to everyone on the road, but as thousands of teenagers head back to school, it's a good time to remind them about their responsibilities behind the wheel and on a bike. Young drivers are inexperienced, which means they must do everything in their power to be safe.
In case you're unfamiliar with the two new laws, here are some of the details.

Also, remember that last year Pennsylvania passed a new teen driver licensing law. Under the new law junior licensees are only permitted to carry one friend under the age of 18. You can read more on this law by visiting our teen driver licensing laws page.
