On Oct 1, 2009 a law went into effect in Maryland that restricted the number of passengers that a teen driver can carry along with the age of those passengers. It also increased the amount of time that a teen must hold a learner’s permit before being eligible for a license. This turned out to be an effective piece of legislation, since teen fatalities on the road have dropped 25 percent since 2009 and injuries have dropped 17 percent in the same interval.
