Decal helps parents of teenage drivers

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

Body

Eighteen-year-old Meredith Stanley has a new sticker to add to her truck thanks to her mother, Cindy.

The new decal is part of a new program at the Brunswick County sheriff’s office, aimed at keeping parents informed on how their young drivers are acting on the roads if they get pulled over by a law enforcement officer.

“They’re going to write the decal number down and they’re going to give us that number at the sheriff’s office and we will in turn contact the parents and let them known what type of a violation or accident or law occurred,” explained Todd Coring of the Brunswick County sheriff’s office.

Meredith said the way young drivers are acting behind the wheel isn’t ideal. “Just racing basically and speeding basically and I know their parents don’t get told.”

Cindy, who works at the sheriff’s office, wants to ensure she’s in the loop. “I have over 100 body guards out here and most of them know by daughter. But say it’s a trooper or a city cop that doesn’t know that she’s my daughter, then I’d like to know.”

Meredith admits having a heavy foot and this sticker will remind her to be more conscientious, and she knows her mom is just looking out for her.

Parents can register for a decal for kids 18 and younger on the sheriff’s office website or call the office at 253-2777.
