It's Time For Young Drivers To Get Stopped

It's Time For Young Drivers To Get Stopped

INGHAM COUNTY - The Michigan Sheriff Association is happy to introduce a program where parents can feel safe while their child is out on the road.

The program, Sheriff's Telling Our Parents and Promoting Educated Driver (STOPPED), is a notification system where parents can be alerted by the sheriff's deputies when their young driver gets pulled over.

“The goal behind this program is just safety,” said Scott Wrigglesworth Ingham County Sheriff. “We know that young drivers are inexperienced, they get involved in a lot of accidents and one of the things that’s behind this program is to reduce the number of accidents by young drivers by allowing parents to know when and if their child is breaking the law.”

Parents can voluntarily register any motor vehicle that will be operated by someone under the age of 21. After registration parents will be issued an identification decal to put on the windshield of the vehicle.
