New Windshield Sticker Program Lets Parents Track Teen Drivers

DETROIT (AP) – Now there’s a way for parents to keep track of how Michigan teen drivers are performing behind the wheel.

The Michigan Sheriffs’ Association says more than 16,000 vehicles are registered in a program called STOPPED … “Sheriffs Telling Our Parents and Promoting Educated Drivers.”

Through the program, a sticker is placed on the windshield of the teen’s car and if a young driver is stopped by a sheriff’s deputy, parents will get a letter spilling all the details — even if the driver doesn’t get a ticket.  The program is meant to make young drivers more accountable.

Hartland and Pinckney high schools require the stickers for any student who wants to drive to school.
