I feel that the minimum driving age should be raised as this would lower the amount of accidents caused by young drivers. If it were 18, in a lot of cases, the person would be going to university, where usually you don't need a car, so they would be learning once they'd finished, when they will have matured.

::My Stance::
The driving age shouldn't be raised to 18 but instead to 21.

::Arguments::
"I feel that the minimum driving age should be raised as this would lower the amount of accidents caused by young drivers"
18 is still too young.

I don't understand this part.
