High school bans limos, luxury cars from prom
WANAQUE, N.J. (AP) - Some students at a New Jersey high school are upset that they won't be able to make a grand entrance by taking limousines and luxury cars to their prom.
Lakeland Regional High School administrators sent a letter to parents this week stating that prom attendees must take school-provided and chaperoned coach buses to and from the venue in June.
Schools Superintendent Hugh Beattie says it's a matter of safety and equity for all students. He says it will cost $15 to ride the buses.
Senior Alex Barna tells WCBS-TV that riding in a limo or party bus was "the best part of the night."
Parent Holly Bosland tells The Record that taking a limo to prom is a tradition, and school officials are taking that away.
