Should 16-year-olds that have a drivers licenses have their own cars?

  • Old enoug to work.

    The way I see it, when you are at the age of 16, you are legally able to work. That being said, I do think young people, 16 years old, should be allowed to have and pay for their own cars. Naturally, it would be up to the parents to decide due to credit reasons.

  • 16-year-olds that have drivers licenses should have their own cars

    16 year olds that have drivers licenses should have their own cars. This is because of the fact that the only 16 year olds that really need to drive and have drivers licenses, probably need to have their own transport as well to get to work as long as they can afford it.

  • The purchase of a car is a consumer choice.

    We live in a capitalistic, free market society. What this means is that companies are at the liberty to sell and consumers to buy as they please. This means that regardless of personal opinions regarding the ownership of cars by young drivers, they or their parents are at liberty to purchase them. Unfortunately, some teenagers are not mature enough to be responsible with automobiles, but it is still the right of their parents to permit them to own them.

  • Only If Teens Can Pay for It

    Teenagers should have their own cars, provided they can help pay for it and for car insurance. A 16-year-old driver who is responsible enough to drive back and forth to work and school ought to have some financial responsibility for the vehicle until they that person fully enters adulthood and gets a full-time job.

  • Car at 16

    I think 16 year olds should have a car at 16 because they then would develop and know what responsibility is. Also this would take some pressure off of the parents because the parents wouldn't have to drive them everywhere or let them borrow their car and the 16 year old could go do some errands for them.

  • I will assume anonymous is an angry teen whose parents won't buy an extra car.

    There a lot of reasons for why a teen should not have a car. There is the maturity argument. Most teens are not mature enough to be trusted with a machine that can kill people. What if their friends dare them to drive at high speeds with no lights at night? And they even call them chicken if they refuse? Would a teen risk peer rejection at an age when that is the most important thing to them?
    There is the responsibility issue. Can you trust them to use the car mainly to go to and from school, or will they use it just to show off in front of their friends and go get drunk to night clubs, coming back at the hour they want to, sneaking into their bedroom and lying about the hour they got back?
    There is the economic argument. Can their parents afford an extra car, and can the teen pay for gas and reparations to teach them responsibility?
    And the ecologic argument. Last thing we need are more cars worsening
    traffic jams and polluting the air.
