Should the Driving Age Be Raised?

April 26, 2014

By Caitibug, Powell, TN

As we all know, in the United States of America, the legal driving age is sixteen. However, sixteen may be too young to receive your driver's license.

In your teenage years, you are still a minor, and therefore you can not do everything you want. But, by the time you turn sixteen, you can receive your driver's license. At sixteen, you are still young and irresponsible to drive a car.

Since teenagers generally aren't the greatest drivers in the world (not all—there are exceptions, of course), most of the car accidents are due to teenage drivers. Car wrecks are the number one cause of death for teenagers. The crash rate for drivers ages sixteen to nineteen is four times higher than for drivers ages twenty five to sixty nine.
