Ask a Trooper: Need sober passenger?
Question: I've heard some people comment, or state in the past, that they have used their underage driver with a learner's permit as a designated driver after having a few drinks. To me, this sounds like it would be illegal, and if anything, just not good common sense. Does the adult riding with a teen on a learner's permit need to be sober by law?
