Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a measure Saturday that would have forced tougher restrictions on young California drivers.

Assembly Bill 63 from Assemblyman Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) would have blocked Californians under 21 from driving between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. and prohibited them from transporting those under 20 without supervision in the first year of having their license — restrictions that are now only reserved for those 18 and under.

Frazier had argued that the bill would increase road safety. But in a veto message, Brown said such rules should only apply to minors.
