TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Applicants for a New Jersey driver’s license must answer whether they’re aware of the dangers of failing to follow traffic laws under a law signed by Acting Gov. Kim Guadagno.

Guadagno signed the legislation Tuesday in Randolph. Gov. Chris Christie is in New Hampshire campaigning for president.

The legislation is called Nikhil’s Law after 11-year-old Nikhil Badlani who was killed in 2011 after a driver ran a stop sign.

The law also requires the Motor Vehicle Commission to ask license applicants whether they want to take a pledge to follow traffic safety laws.

This is not the first time Guadagno has signed legislation as acting govern. In 2012 she signed a bill aimed at assisting in the prosecution violators of New Jersey’s hands-free law.
