Nearly 20,000 new  drivers have taken to the road in Georgia. Many of them are teenagers. With Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, signing into law a new rule that states new drivers will not need to take a road test to obtain their driver’s license during the Covid-19 pandemic, many of those 20,000 new drivers have never been behind the wheel of a car before. The law has only been in effect for about a week. Many expect the numbers to rise substantially. NBC News (@nbcnews) reports, not everyone in Georgia is happy about the new law. And at least one person is taking action. Sarah Casto, a driving instructor says the thought of knowing some people are on the road who have never been behind the wheel of a car “terrifies” her. Casto has started an online petition in hopes of convincing Governor Kemp to reverse his decision. Casto says that most people only decided to come get driving lessons after they fail their road test maybe 3 or 4 times. With the new law in effect, no one will come and take driving lessons. Why should they? Being a horrible driver won’t stop you from obtaining a license in the state of Georgia… least for now.
