    Two recent public opinion surveys point to widespread support for graduated driver licensing. A 1996 public opinion poll conducted by the American Automobile Association found that nearly three out of four respondents favor limiting the use of cars by 15-to-20-year-olds until they gain sufficient driving experience. In 1995, the Public Attitude Monitor, an annual

    poll conducted by the Insurance Research Council, asked respondents to rate various suggestions for reducing auto crashes among young drivers. A graduated driver licensing program was considered a 'good' or 'excellent' idea by nearly 45 percent of all respondents, while 75 percent of the parents of teenagers liked the idea. Nighttime driving restrictions and zero alcohol tolerance ranked about the same. Interestingly, nearly half of all respondents thought raising the driving age to 18 was a 'good' or 'excellent' idea (the rate was 60 percent for parents of teenagers).
