PRESS-NEWS JOURNAL, CANTON, MO. I I I THURSDA Y, AUGUST 31, 2006 - PAGE 3 Portions of Senate Bill 1001 went into effect Mon- day, August 28, and restrict the number of passengers Intermediate License holders may carry in their vehicle. According to the Na- tional Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the risk of an automobile crash increases greatly with each additional teen passenger riding with a young teen driver. The new law mandates these restrictions: During the first six months after being issued an Interme- diate License, a driver is limited to carrying one passenger under the age of 19 who is not a member of the driver's immediate family. After the first six months of holding an In- termediate License, the driver is limited to three passengers under the age of 19 who are not members of the driver's immediate family. The law defines "imn ediate family" as "brothers, sisters, step- brothers or stepsisters of the driver, including adopted or foster children residing in the same household of the license holder." Passenger restrictions do no apply to an Interme- diate License holder who is operating a motor vehicle in agricultural work-re- lated activities. in A Canton man had ap- two miles north of Canton, parent moderate injuries when his 2006 Ford Mus- after a one-car accident tang went off the right side August 24. of the road, struck several Taken by Air Evac to trees and a parked tractor.
