Why should te age limit NOT be raised to 18+? Fill me in :)

Pro

I accept.

Per the wording of this resolution, I should be arguing that the age limit for driving ought to be raised to 18 or over, but CON's first statement suggests the opposite. Per his remarks, I will explain in my case why the age limit ought not be raised to 18+.

I'll just use this for acceptance and pass back to him.

I am 14 and taking drivers ed, I see your point of view on why we should raise the age limit, but in Idaho we have to farm at a young age, and this helps us help out earlier, plus if you started at 18, you are going off into the world with no experience, and failing to have experienced to drive. Another factor is that it takes 3 weeks to learn it, it takes 60 hours of driving, then after your licence, you have 6 months till you actully can drive without just only one person in the car with you!!! That is a lot of time, and little time to get this when you are born in the winter, I was born in September, and that's the only way for me to start and have my drivers license durning my freshmen year of highschool. So it's about TIME AND RESPECT, and those come in handy when you get out of the house, so I think you DEFINITELY should have it at 14 or 16!!!!
