The Importance Of Raising The Minimum Driving Age

Satisfactory Essays
Due to safety concerns, many states have agreed that increasing the age at which teens can begin to drive. Virginia is considering raising the minimum driving age from 16 to 18. I believe that the minimum driving age should remain the same. Although there are some safety concerns, teens who are responsible on the road should not be punished for the actions of others. Also, young adults driving on the road gives them a sense of responsibility. Another reason why the law should not change, it would delay the teens on getting a job and getting that feeling of adulthood. Research shows that only 1 in 10 students in high school are irresponsible with the ability to drive. With that statement why should others who need the license be punished
