Should teens in the US be able to drive at the age of 14?

  • Yes they should!

    By letting 14 year olds drive they'll have more experience in driving by high school and college. Doing this can also teach teens responsibility and could give them a reason why not to play video games all day! I honestly think that they should make a car fit and suitable for teens that's a little smaller and slower than normal cars. -Tre Lavoie

  • Ya people say that we would get in accidents but evrybody gets in accidents

    If we start driving at 14 they say that we cant drive well that's because we are not trained just like a 16 year old and an 18 year old you have to be trained and if we start young we will get more experience before we are on our own in the world and when your fourteen that is when you want to go places and do stuff with our friends and our parents don't have to drive us because there excuse why you cant go to your friends house is because they don't want to drive you there

  • No,teens should not be able to drive at the age of 14.

    No,teens should not be able to drive at the age of 14.Teenagers tend to be impetuous and immature and to trust them with the responsibility of driving and operating a car.They are also very prone to peer pressure so even when they are mature they may be influenced easily by friends.

  • 14 shouldn't drive.

    I personally do not think that it is a good idea for 14 year old kids to drive. They are still really young and shouldn't be able to have that level of mobility. I think the current age of 16 is still a really good age to begin driving for everyone.

  • No, the driving age should not be lowered.

    The legal driving age shouldn't be lowered. Fourteen year olds are far too young to drive. Already, teen drivers are the most dangerous drivers on the road, and some would argue that the minimum age should be raised. Teen drivers lack discretion, and accidents are caused because they're distracted by friends, drinking, or even texting while driving. At fourteen, kids are too young to make wise decisions behind the wheel.

  • No. The age of 14 is too young to drive!

    No. 14 year old children should not be allowed to get behind the wheel of a moving vehicle. At 14 years old, children are often are unaware of the damage a vehicle can cause. Children and teens should wait until the age of 16 to become a licensed driver in all states.

  • Heck to the no!

    Why would people even think of this question? Teens at the age of fourteen can't even drink or smoke yet. So why would they be able to drive a car? Some kids won't be confident enough to drive at that age. To some teens, sixteen is even too young, and that's the age for a probationary license, I am completely against fourteen year old children driving.

  • No no no!

    Teenagers at this age are more likely to be on drugs which will increase the number of accidents.
    Also, that would mean there would be more cars which will pollute the environment even more than it is already and global warming is already a big enough problem as it is.

  • We need to space out privileges!!!

    All the privileges are just thrown in their faces at once! We really need to space out their privileges so that they can get used to them and go one at a time. Also not all can even see out the front window. They also have no reason to drive!!!!!

  • No, they shouldn't drive!

    This subject has been speculated on for a while but i think that teens should NOT be allowed to drive. Think to yourself, is your teen mature enough to make crash threatening decisions? Yes, it does give them a sense of freedom and responsibility, but at what cost? How long will it be until your teen is in a fatal crash? When and how will they use the freedom and will they lose their sense of responsibility to hanging out with friends on a joyride? Your child might say that they know how to drive or that they'll have to learn anyways, but ARE they ready? Although i am against the idea of teen driving, if a law that teens are allowed to drive passes then the teens should have to pass a driving test just like everyone else. With a grade of a b or higher to decrease the chances of a fatal crash. Even if your teen passes a driving test think of this, whos car will they use? Certainly now yours, right? It has been tested and proved that young inexperienced drivers have a higher crash rate compared to the more experienced drivers.

  • No the young age of 14 is too young

    I feel that teens shouldn't be able to drive because teenagers tend to be irresponsible and immature in terms of the average teen. As an counterargument i can see why teens should be able to drive because it relieves stress on the parents to take them places and it gives the teens more freedom and experience in the world. However, it also gives more stress to the parents because they worry about their teen like what they're doing; if they get into an accident, if they are doing things they shouldn't be, or even ditching school because they can drive a car. In addition teens are susceptible to peer pressure, they are impetus, and tend to make bad decisions when they panic or overall because they don't have the experience to know what to do in the situation. At most i believe they should be able to get a learners permit to gain experience for later on in life when they can drive. Furthermore, it should be up to the parents should i let my daughter or son drive? Would i risk being less stress and trust them with the big responsibility of driving and operating a car with all the bad drivers out there and all that road rage? What happens if they make bad a decision on the road and crash and be traumatized for the rest of their lives or even worst lose their precious lives at such a young age. Think of all the things they could've done with their life. Think of how you would feel and think of your beloved child and what you would do if something happened. I personally think (as a 13 yr old) that we shouldn't be able to drive at 14 because of all the consequences of a mistake and everything that can happen.

  • No. Just no

    I think 14 year old's should NOT get their drivers license because they are just not mature enough. To give proof recently in my area there was a car
    crash involving a mid-teen because he was to distracted on other things
    and didn't pay attention to the yield sign and crashed.I think the SHOULD get their learners permit though. So they can get ready for whats ahead of them.
