I am doing a persuasive essay for my high school Pre CAHSEE exam and would simply like other peoples inputs on my subject. I chose the topic "Should teenage drivers be allowed to have underage passengers in the car with them. why or why not? support your side with details and examples" this is unfortunately due at 10:30 am on Wednesday January 14th 2014, (tomorrow). I know this is short notice but I would appreciate any input that people would have on my side or the opposing side. So I believe knowing my position on this topic would be helpful. I am 100% against Teens driving with minors in the car. Could you be the seventeen year old student who was distracted and rammed into a big rig and was now responsible for the death of your younger siblings or cousin. the answer is an obvious NO! Unless your a heartless stone , no human could sanely live day to day with the guilt of killing a child. that's simply my argument. please send me feedback,

It was hard I didn't get hurt but my sister broke her arm.

People really don't understand that when young brand new drivers are driving people that are considered youth it may be convenient for the parents but when they do that there is a chance of putting other people and their children in danger. I remember that we got in the accident because my sister was trying to turn off the radio when I had turned it up. This was when I still lived in New York and it was in the winter the her car started swerving and ran into the pole at the intersections.

No big deal. I joined this website because my school in Arizona is small and doesn't have a debate team.
