I believe that it should be raised. The drivers can practice earlier and then they can see where the driver is by the age of 18.

The age should be raised. This age group has the highest crash rate of any in the U.S.. On December 24th, 2005, 4 teenagers (ages 16-17) went on a late drive and had a terrible accident. Also deaths of drivers ages 16 and 17 increased 19% since last year. I got my information from teachers scholastic.

I believe that the age should be raised. According to USA Today, Robert Davis, he says that teens aren't mature enough. Scientists at the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD., have found that this vital area develops through the teenage years and isn't fully mature until age 25. Also the research seems to help explain why 16-year-old drivers crash after higher rates the older teens. That is why I believe the age should be changed.

The driving age is fine in my opinion. It should stay because they will know how to drive earlier than when they could later. Also most teens won't pass there driving test until years after according to northernstar. So I believe it should stay.
