A South Carolina foster father is fighting for driving rights for foster children. Currently, the DMV only allows a legal parent or guardian to sign the papers for a teenager to get his/her driver’s permit or license. This means that many foster youth will not be able to drive until they are reunited with their biological families or adopted. Yet these kids are just as able to drive as other youth. Lawmakers in Columbia, South Carolina are meeting soon to work to craft a law making it possible for foster parents to sign DMV papers for youth to receive their permits and licenses. Foster father Brad Cullum is making a difference by challenging long-standing laws that discriminate against foster children.
