Georgia mom looking to get warning magnets mandated for teen-drivers

Newly Licensed

Susie Kessler, mother of 16-year-old Donne, could care less if she embarrasses him when it comes to his driving privileges. Concerned about his safety, Kessler threw on a big magnet on the back of his car that reads “Caution – Newly Licensed.”

Through a nonprofit organization Kessler founded, she has sold about 15,000 of those magnets across the United States.

Now, if Kessler has it her way, your teen could also be riding around with “Caution – Newly Licensed” magnet on the back of his/her car. Kessler is working with a Georgia state senator to support a potential bill next session that would mandate use of such magnets by all young drivers.
