For Teenagers, a “Graduated” Driver’s License Saves Lives—and Saves Parents from a Nervous Breakdown
By NICK CHILES
The state of New Jersey is currently debating a bill that would create “graduated licenses” for teenagers, which add more safeguards and restrictions to the process of acquiring a license for 16-year-old drivers. While there is some opposition in New Jersey, these measures have been passed in many other states around the country, including Georgia, where I live, and let me tell you, they make a huge difference for parents. I am an unequivocal supporter of anything that makes teenagers more cautious and conscientious when they get behind the wheel.
First of all, you can’t argue with the statistics. A story in the New York Times, quoting numbers provided by the New Jersey Teen Safe Driving Coalition, says that with teenage drivers, a single passenger raises the risk of a crash by 50 percent and doubles the risk of a driver dying in a crash; three passengers increase the risk of a crash by 200 percent. Most graduated license laws, such as the one we have here in Georgia, prohibit 16-year-olds from driving with another teenager in the car for at least six months. In the second six months after they get the license, teens can’t have more than one other teen in the car. A year after the license, teens still aren’t supposed to have more than three other teens in the car. Read more…

2011 was an exceptionally good year for the “bad” half of Detroit’s own Bad Meets Evil featuring ROYCE and his partner in rhyme Eminem. Last summer they released their long awaited EP, Hell: The Sequel, which featured the Bruno Mars assisted double platinum-selling single, “Lighters,” and the gold certified single, “Fast Lane.”
With 2011 behind him, 2012 looks to be even brighter with the upcoming release of OUR HOUSE, his second offering via Shady Records, but this time with his super group, SLAUGHTERHOUSE. Royce exclaims, “I’ve been a solo artist for the majority of my career so to enjoy so much success as a member of both BME and Slaughterhouse feels surreal.” Read more…
