    If you have a permit or provisional license and drive in the Garden State, soon everyone will know about it.

    Starting May 1, the state will require all drivers under the age of 21 who don't have an unrestricted license to display a decal on both license plates.

    The reflective red stickers are designed to help police identify vehicles operated by teens who may be violating passenger limits or breaking curfew laws.

    The decals are required under Kyleigh's Law, named in memory of a 16-year-old central New Jersey high school student killed in a car driven by another teen in 2006.

    On Friday, a judge in Morris County dismissed a lawsuit questioning the law's constitutionality.
