CAA Applauds Minister Trevors for the withdrawal of the proposed amendment to the GDL program

Saint John, NB– CAA commends Minister Trevors for withdrawing the proposal to amend the Graduated License program that would have seen the elimination of the midnight to 5 a.m. driving restrictions currently in place for newly licensed drivers.

 “This move will continue to ensure that newly licensed drivers gain the necessary experience to safely drive in nighttime conditions”, said Gary Howard, CAA Atlantic. “Evidence shows that the combination of reduced visibility, glare, fatigue, possible impairment and other factors make nighttime particularly hazardous for new drivers.”  CAA is very pleased with the outcome and applaud the thoughtful MLAs who acted responsibly in this matter.
