As a driver-in-training in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Dylan Fox is learning to deal with common challenges such as snow and ice. Now he’s got some more things to keep in mind: new state requirements that limit when he can drive and how many friends can tag along.
The 15-year-old from the Schoolcraft County community of Cooks will be among the first to face new restrictions to Michigan’s Graduated Driver Licensing program. The changes for teen drivers with a level 2 intermediate license take effect Wednesday.
Fox is less than thrilled about the passenger provision, but he gets the overall point of the new rules of the road.
