Do you believe it is justifiable to increase the driving age to 17?

  • Yes, they will always be.

    Books will always be prevalent in a society of education, because computers cannot tell you history accurately like a teacher and a book can. Traditional studying will always exist in my opinion because it is effective and you learn a lot more from a less distractive book than the Internet.

  • Justifiable To Increase

    I personally think that the voting age at that time set at 21 years of age, Senator Kennedy argued that it was wrong that young Americans could be drafted to serve in Vietnam, but could not vote. Sensing an overwhelming amount of support in Congress for giving 18 year-olds the right to vote in federal, state and local elections, Senator Kennedy took the battle to the Senate Committee on Constitutional Amendments. With his support it passed and millions of young people have been able to take part our nation’s political process as a result.

  • What difference does one year make?

    I definatly do not think the age should be raised. For one, it has been 16 forever, and making it 17 only brings negative effects. For one, finding a job becomes much easier being able to drive. By restricting driving ablilities, you are just taking away chances for income for teenagers, which is crucial if we expect them to be financially stable in college. If we increase it to 21, like a previous comment suggested, how likely will it be for young adults to have a job? Teenage employment will take a drastic drop, and they who will be paying for college? Parents? Government? It is not necessary for parents to pay for their child's college education. By the time their child is an adult, they should be able to support themselves, and raising the driving age will just make this more difficult.

  • The Driving Age Is Fine

    People just like to complain about things. People on farms usually teach their kids how to drive earlier than 16. Granted, they do not have to deal with all the traffic like urban areas do. That being said, the driving age has been 16 forever, and why change it now?

  • No, I do not.

    If the driving age is going to be increased, it has to be increased by several years; probabably all the way to 21. There isn't any difference between 16 and 17, and usually isn't a difference between 16 and 18. 21 is when kids really start to show responsibility and maturity.
