should I allow my 13 year old son to ride in the car while his 16 year old friend is driving?

Most states have laws against newly licensed drivers having other kids in the car with them. I wouldn't allow it.

There is no reason a 16 yr old should be driving around cruising with a 13 yr old in the car. At 16 they do not have enough experience behind the wheel to have that kind of interaction going on...he or she will be paying more attention to those in the car than on the road. Also in a lot of states anymore there are restrictions on drivers of this age and who can be in the car with them.

My son's friend just got his drivers license and he wants to go cruising with him. My instincts say NO but my heart says am I being too overbearing?
