New restrictions in effect for Junior Operators

Changes to the Junior Operator's License went into effect March 31, 2007. According to the Lowell Sun, a speeding ticket will result in a minimum fine of $50, an automatic license suspension of 90 days, a $50 surcharge, completion of a driver retraining course, and before license reinstatement, a fee of $500. These changes and more are included in Chapter 438 of the acts of 2006, amending several sections of chapter 90 of the General Laws. The Registry of Motor Vehicles has info about the new changes on the page about Junior Operator Licenses. And if you do get a ticket, don't forget our page on Traffic Violations, and our Find a Lawyer page.
