Speeding is not the only reason people want to change the driving age. In 2014, Five teenage passengers were killed and a 16-year-old driver was severely injured. The victims were described as two females and three males, one of whom was an 8th-grader. This is showing that even though if they were speeding and had to pay for their ticket situations like this happen and happen often to people under the age of 18. So even though kids can afford their speeding tickets deaths and injuries are not eliminated from this situation.
Yes, I know some kids can handle driving a car at 16 but if we eliminate 16-year-old drivers in all the chance of car crash injuries that affect people for their whole lifetime, and deaths will be reduced. if we could tell who would be a safe driver and who would not people would try to make hat happen. But how are you supposed to tell who is going to be safe all the time?
Yes, I agree. San Pasqual Union School Principal says "All 50 states prohibit 16-year-olds from drinking alcohol, buying cigarettes, and purchasing handguns. Yet somehow most states are willing to put them in charge of a car, which could potentially be more of a deadly weapon than some of those other things." Therefore, more kids are going to get in more trouble handling a car at 16 then all these harmful weapons and drugs.
You said that those 16-year-olds are just as experienced as 18 years old. I believe that is not true because at 18 if you start taking classes at the same time kids do now there will be more years you have learned about driving and the safety, therefore you are more prepared and ready to start driving. Also, just because 16-year-olds "have the same experience."This doesn't mean they are as safe as 18-year-olds and don't get in trouble more than 18-year-olds.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
