Resolved: The legal driving age in America should be 21 years old.
Debate Rounds (5)
MY FIRST ARGUMENT IS
smiley face :)
Point 1. Increasing the age limit from 16 to 21....
Since people have to learn how to drive sometime increasing the age will not alter the number of accidents.
Things have been like this for decades and by increasing the driving age, you are denying children the freedom that their parents and grandparents enjoyed. Also,it would stop teenagers from getting jobs and thus harm the economy.
I think that the age shouldnt be increased because why would you want to punish all the kids in the legal sense of driving for a couple of mistakes that a couple of teenagers did. also, honestly i think that not all teenagers get high or drunk and get in car accidents its more of adults who get into a car acciendent then a teenager.
FIRST, if we increase the driving age to twenty-one. we will have more mature drivers on the road. instead of kids talking on there phones while driving, we will have adults who know that there is a time and place for everything. instead of teenagers blasting there radio and rolling down there window we have respectful adults who know that its very rude to the other drivers.
Second, it makes teens lazy. and it doesn't stop you from getting a job.
you could always ride a bike, or walk to work, making it more cost efficient for you and you also get a work out making you fit. not only that but you could take the bus. so that does not stop you from getting a job. and we get more respectfull mature drivers.

lol not really i just ran out of time
First, like i said, you could take the bus. it costs less then driving most of the time gets you where you need to go and you dont need a permit or a license. also if your sixteen it would be best to spend most of your time on school to get better grades. instead of spending your time trying to pass your drivers test.
Second, while its true that not every teenager might not have a phone, they can still be easily distracted by people simply being in the car.
Third, i agree with you if your allowed to drive you should be able to do everything else. that's why i say we should increase the driving limit to 21 that way you can, vote, go to war, drink legally, ETC.
