Please help to make Ontario the safest jurisdiction for young drivers in the world.

Please sign the petition below

In reflecting upon Tyler and his friends tragic accident we hope that this will come to mean something by saving lives and minimizing pain and suffering by changing the driving laws for young drivers. To reduce the risk we are proposing a law change that will help develop better driving habits in young drivers.

These improved habits will have an impact on overall driving habits as these young drivers age. The proposed law change is that young drivers to the age of 21 will have their license revoked if they have alcohol in their bloodstream, (similar to early phase licenses), and will also have their license revoked for speeding, (demerit points lost/15 km over). The term of the penalty would be from 3 months to 1 year based upon the amount of alcohol or the severity of speed. In other words zero tolerance until age 21 for speeding or alcohol consumption when driving. It is at these young ages where drivers are the most reckless and feel invincible. Something must be done!

We have sent the letter below to Mr McGuinty

Your support is important and can really make a difference as the government has indicated that they are already considering a change so far as drinking and driving is concerned.

Please sign this petition below and then forward this petition to as many persons as possible as Momentum is crucial.

I am really glad to see other people around canada noticing what a hazard some drivers have been come, Ive noticed here though, its not just the young ones, and there are just as many doing it sobar, as they are drinking. Our problem here is not so much car accidents, But pedistrians getting hit, even at cross walks when they are to have the right away, and believe me the person drivin always comes up with an excuse, in the last month i have had a close friend die, And witness 2 other people Hit by vehicles, the most recent just January 4 2011, What a way to bring in the new year eh? On her way to get stuff for her son to go back to school with, and has been in the hospital ever since, with know word on how shes doing, I believe ALL Road and driving rules need to change.... How many people have to die before they do something about it..... Its time we dont just tell them what this is doing to people and families, we need to show them

we need to protect our kids and if changing the law is the first of many steps that is what needs to be done so our kids can grow up and be young adults.

My sincere condolences on the passing of Tyler. Safe driving habits are crucial at any age. As humans, we all need to be mindful of each other. Unfortunately, sometimes we need tougher laws to help us remember that!

I have seen your interview on legal briefs and offer our condolences to you and your family but feel that the comment you made about drinking establishments being there to make money off sales of liquor and would be shut down if they were caught overserving is where you went totaly off the cause of your sons accident. if these establishments were held responsible for allowing them to consume that amount of alcohol in that period of time and still drive is more the cause of loss of life than the speed. we are well aware of the overserving of alcohol causing death due to are daughters death in a calmar bar due to overserving one night.we feel that laws for overserving should be enforced to fhe fullest and if that means they are closed down so be it.alcohol serving should be everyone involved responsibility changing the age of drinking to 25 will do more than changing the licensing age thank you ted petersen

My granddaughter, a passenger, is dead due to a driver being too young and inexperienced, having 5 teens in a car, playing with cell phones, and drifting in the curves at near midnight..another was airlifted to a major hospital due to his injuries, he has head trauma, etc. We need this law changed!!!
