    Lastly, many researchers support the idea that the government should increase the age of driving to eighteen because of teen drivers' lacking of maturity. At the age of sixteen, teenagers are not mature enough in making decision and facing with problems. According to The Driving Age Should Be Increased, Robert Davis said that the brain has not completed development at the age of sixteen. When teens are speeding, only the center of the brain have enough ability to work perfectly; other parts of the

    Driving age must stay at 16 There are about 2,000,000 sixteen year old drivers in United States, meaning that almost 2,000,000 million people depend on the current driving age for many things. Having a license at age 16 gives that person opportunities they wouldn’t be able to have without the freedom a car gives, such as getting a job that could help their family, driving themselves to school or sports practice if their parents can’t or being able to see their friends when they want. Having your

    licenses. The age limits for driving have been debated on for such a long time now. The age limit for driving varies according to what country you’re living in. In my opinion, the driving age in the United States should not be raised to age 18 because I believe that age has nothing to do with responsibility, getting to and from school and curricular activities can be hard without your own transportation, and not all families have a person eligible to drive. People believe that the age 16 is too young

    I think that the age should stay the same because we teenagers are responsible enough to drive, we all don’t speed. We have taken a class on how to drive, we have taken a test to get our learners proving that we know what the laws are, and we have driven with a Driving educator that says we are ready to go our own too. The parents have the right to take the license away from the teenager until there are 18 if necessary if they feel the need to. The driving age should stay the same because we are

    Raising The Driving Age The current driving age of 16 is implemented in almost every state in the United States. Most states have become accustomed to the current driving age, but recently there are certain states that believe that the legal driving age should be raised due to various reasons. The main argument for most states is that 16 year olds are not mature enough and lack the preparation to handle the responsibility to drive safely.

By increasing the driving age teens have more time to practice making them more prepared and more likely to be safer drivers. Teens have a very short attention span, with technology; they are even more likely to get distracted making it more dangerous for them and other drivers Auto insurance

Need to drive to get to part-time jobs and to do tasks like grocery shopping.”(Driving Age). Once you get your license you can get a job for yourself since

    The minimum driving age should not be raised or lowered. In Illinois, for example, the driving age is 16 years old. At a first glance, it seems better to wait until teens are older to begin driving. However, it is apparent that no matter what age a person starts driving, it is up to the driver to determine how safely he or she will drive. It would be pointless to raise the driving age for many reasons. The 16-year-old requirement to receive a driver's license is a standard and common rule. All but
