Jean, if the bill passes drivers under the age of 18 will have to be off the road in under an hour.
The bill is also calling to up the age of when you can get your drivers license from 16 to 16 in a half.

((September 18th, 1992, Tiki Barber earns player of the week honors by leading the Knights to a win with four touchdowns and 160 yards rushing. November 26th, 1993, quarterback Anthony Poindexter accounts for three touchdowns in extending Jefferson Forest's season in the Region III, Division III semifinals. The players of the week go head to head Sunday in Super Bowl 35. ((TIKI BARBER:)) Both earned their player of the week honors against the Martinsville Bulldogs and that's not the only similarity between them. Both have a strong love for Friday Football Extra. ((ANTHONY POINDEXTER:)) ((TIKI BARBER:))
Tiki is playing in the Super Bowl with a broken arm. At times at Cave Spring, that toughness left him limping at games only to return and make sure the other team came up lame on the scoreboard. William Byrd middle school principal Steve Spangle remembers. ((:))
In that game Tiki got by number 45, Ravens Cornell Brown, who gets another shot at Tiki, but not player of the week.))
