I think that the age for driving should go up because the death ratio in the past 20 years has gone up exponentially .

I think that the reason for that is as the generations continue the become less and less mature .

As you currently see a majority of the accidents are people 25-34 and a majority of those people would be really ticked if they have their driving rights taken away. http://www.car-accidents.com...
