Sixteen Should End Children who are sixteen are too young to make many important life decisions. They simply don't have the decision-making skills and abilities that older people have. The most severe accidents and fatalities occur in 16 and 17 year old drivers. Raising the driving age to 18 would help prevent this.

As someone who was the very age of 16 not too long ago (at least I'd like to think that way), I think that people who are that age do not yet realize the kind of power that they have when they are operating a motor vehicle on a public highway.
16 is too young for someone to be handling the responsibility of driving a car and putting their own and the lives of others into their hands. Looking back at 16, which was just a couple of years ago for me, it is frighteningly young age for such a big commitment. 16 year olds are not responsible people. They are still children and they are on the cusp of adulthood, at a high school age where they put their focus more onto things such as friendships, popularity, and trying out drinking and partying. It just doesn't seem safe.
I literally just got my permit 2 days ago. I'm 21. 16 is fine for most people, but when I live with a mild case of autism that affects the way I learn. I'm a hands on learner. When I was 16 I just had a state and school ID card. I was focused on one thing at 16, and that was successfully graduating from high school. I did not have anything else going on in my life other than wanting to get my diploma As a result I didn't get my first job until I was 18 shortly after finishing high school, and I also didn't see the need to drive as I could take the bus to school or even bicycle or walk. Everyone matures at a different rate. I didn't get my instruction permit until literally 2 days ago, and I'm 21. Up until late 2017 I was content with not driving... But then I was rejected for a job because I didn't have my license and that made me realize it's probably time to learn to drive.
All of you are traders to freedom and I don't blame the young for revolting . Lets punish them and take away all their freedom that you all enjoyed as a youth . Is that what scares you remembering what you did ? I say we should teach them and allow them to grow up just like we did and give them at least the same freedom we had .
Perhaps we might consider keeping them in diapers
until they are 28 now . Why not on a bottle and in a play pin too. What the heck.. Is it separation anxiety , guilt or scared of the boogie man . Do you people really think this way and believe what you are posting in here?
Are you all part of the of the best generation

Everyone complains that they're too young to drive because they're aren't mature enough, or can't make the right decisions, but if these teens aren't allowed to drive until 18 or 21, then how are they supposed to gain experience before college, or get a job. Some people aren't close enough to walk to their job, or maybe they need to drive to many other things. Yes, younger drivers get in more accident, but that is because they are just starting out driving. CDC says that newly-licensed drivers are at a very high risk of motor vehicle accidents. That's because they're newly-licensed, and don't have nearly as much experience as someone who has been driving for upward of 20 years. Whether or not the new driver is 16, 18, 21, or even 50, they don't have experience, so they'd obviously get in more accidents. No matter the age of legal driving, the surrounding age range will have the most percentage of accidents
The age 16 is not too young to drive because you can drive mopeds and tractors so why can't we drive cars at sixteen? If you learn to drive at 16 it will give you more life experience. A lot of people say it's ok to drive at sixteen so why can't we?
16 is the right age to learn to drive. Many 16 year old people have part time jobs, and they need to be able to drive themselves to work. Learning to drive is an important rite of passage, and it's important for teens to learn to be independent at an early age.
Sixteen is the perfect age to drive. At that point, a teenager may be considering getting a job to prepare themselves for the future of work, and they'll need to be able to travel. They also can use it to explore a newfound sense of freedom, as long as they behave under the guidelines set by their parents.
A sixteen year-old isn't too young to learn how to drive in this country. While inexperienced drivers cause accidents, they aren't always teens that cause accidents. A teen needs to learn how to drive, and 16 years-old is a practical age for youngsters to learn how to drive a vehicle.
16 is not too young to learn how to drive. I think it is the perfect age to start learning. However I don't think you should be allowed to drive on your own until you are 18. This would mean 2 years of learning how to properly drive and hopefully becoming more safe.
No. I do not believe that sixteen is too young to learn how to drive. It is that age that children are working their way to adulthood and need to find some sort of independence. It has been successful so far. Granted some grown people don't really know how to drive and should be retested. As long as the teen passes the written exam and the driving test, I believe they should have driving privileges.
I believe that 16 is just the right age to start driving. At 16, kids should be beginning to look for jobs in order to pay for college education in the coming years. With the price of college skyrocketing, children need to be able to make money as soon as they can. The only way they can do so is to allow them the privilege of driving.
