“This is a positive outreach campaign to remind teenage drivers to make good choices as they celebrate the end of their time in high school”- Registrar Rachel Kaprielian. 

RMV inspectors and local police surprised teenage drivers at 33 high schools statewide today as part of this year's "Operation Graduation" to encourage safe driving during the prom and graduation season.

Enforcement teams set up unannounced safety checks to reward teen drivers who were in compliance with the state’s junior operator and safety belt laws and warn those in violation about the consequences.

Preliminary results show 86% of the 4,457 teen drivers passed the safety inspection.  A total of 54 junior operators violated the passenger restriction and received verbal warnings.  Teams also found 14% (673) not wearing seat belts.

Statistics compiled since the new junior operator law took effect show that teens are driving safer as the number of crashes and speeding citations has dropped.
