I don't believe that people of the age 65+ should be allowed to drive. seeing as they aren't even allowed to work legally anymore so then why should they be able to drive on the road of people of such a younger age. if they are incapable of working amongst other people how do we know that they can operate a full size vehicle. if they are going to be allowed to drive they should go through a special test before they legally can. other than that. THEY SHOULD BE BANNED FROM THE ROAD!
People of the age 65+ have probably had more experience than young teens. Scientific studies have shown that the pre frontal cortex doesn't fully develop until the age of 21. This part of the brain is crucial to making big decisions. How can a teen make logical driving decisions if their brain is not fully developed? Most 60 year olds aren't stupid, blind, or deaf. So being 60 years old won't make them any more of a lousy driver than a teen.
rebutle 1: the argument isn't about whether young teens should be allowed on the road it has to do with people over the age of 65.
rebutle 2: I am not saying that 60 year olds are any of those things. there Is a reason why the government made it illegal for people over the age of 65 to not work anymore. and it has to with their capabilities. I don't believe that they have all the capabilities that they did when they were of younger age.
Research on age-related driving concerns has shown that at around the age of 65 drivers face an increased risk of being involved in a vehicle crash. After the age of 75, the risk of driver fatality increases sharply, because older drivers are more vulnerable to both crash-related injury and death. Three behavioral factors in particular may contribute to these statistics: poor judgement in making left-hand turns; drifting within the traffic lane; and decreased ability to change behavior in response to an unexpected or rapidly changing situation.
