Hartford serves as Connecticut’s capital, and is the second-most populous city in the state, with over 124,500 residents. Hartford lies on the Connecticut River in Hartford County, and is one of the oldest U.S. cities. Hartford is also home to the nation’s oldest public art museum, public park, and continuously published newspaper.
Hartford’s economy largely relies on the insurance industry; in fact, Harford has been called the “Insurance Capital of the World,” because so many insurance companies are based in the city. Hartford’s downtown has recently experienced tremendous growth. For example, a convention center, science facility and hotel were all constructed within a short period of time.
Recently, Connecticut joined states across the nation in imposing special restrictions on teenage drivers. Car accidents are the number one cause of death for teens, and laws such as Connecticut’s are intended to help keep them safe. Some of the law’s provisions, such as the 11 p.m. curfew, are unpopular with many teens. Authorities have questioned how diligently the law is being followed, but because police cannot stop drivers for merely looking young, most are caught when they’re stopped for other violations.
