There is no reason for minors over the age of 13 to be driving. Even 15-16 year olds are a little bit to young to be driving. Why is this? It revolves around maturity. Kids don't realize that hey have other people's lives in their hands when they step into he drivers seat. Kids make mistakes more than adult which is completely normal, but these mistakes should not endanger people's lives. Also driving is a part of growing up, you get to be on the road with other adults. There is no reason to grow up to fast, you have plenty of time to be an adult.
