I think the idea of a log is silly because as stated by another here is no one going to lie. Of course some parents will lie in order to fast track their child. I do think that young drivers need to have more stringent requirements for getting their privilege to drive. I am requiring my child to have a job in order to assist in the cost of adding her to my policy. Its not that I cannot afford it but to show here that it is not a just a rite of passage. It costs money to own a car and to drive, she will appreciate the full effect. Young drivers are among the higher percentage group and as such should be highlighted.
Misdemeanors of less than 6 months... a littering conviction is a misdemeanor...should I go to jail for a first offense of littering? Tossing out a cigarette butt is littering so jail time is appropriate?
