You say that too many kids are getting hurt at the age of 16, but you don't have any sources where you got this from, and I disagree. I think that at 16 years of age teenager’s should be mature dedicated drivers. A 16 year old teenager is mature, and dedicated to driving. After a few quick years of driving, they will be ready to head off into the real world with a good feel for the wheel. While, if a student gets their license when they are 18 years old, they will be stressed, because they have to focus on going to college, driving, school, a boyfriend/girlfriend and on top of that driving. I don’t think that teens are going to want to take the time to drive.

The driving age should be raised to 18 years old. Too many kids are losing their lives to driving at such a young age. If we were to compare a state with a minimum driving age of 17, to one with 16, we would see that the older the driver the less deaths occur. For instance, New Jersey has a minimum driving age of 17 recorded results for crash-related deaths of 16-17 year old They found that 18 out of 100,000 deaths occurred. While in Connecticut, (minimum driving age of 16 and four months) found that 26 of 100,000 crash-related deaths included 16 year olds.

You say that 15-17 year old teens are more likely to die in a car accident, than 18 year old are because 30,917 fatalities involved 15-17 year old driver's which is true. But I disagree, because what you don't realized is that 18 year olds are even more prone to driving fatalities than 15-17 year old driver's are. A 16 year old teenager is mature, and dedicated to driving. After a few quick years of driving, they will be ready to head off into the real world with a good feel for the wheel. While, if a student gets their license when they are 18 years old, they will be stressed, because they have to focus on going to college, driving, school, a boyfriend/girlfriend and on top of that driving.

I believe that the driving age should not be raised to 18 years old. The teenager will be able to get use to driving a vehicle early, which will cause less crashes in the future. If a student gets their license when they are 16, they have time to get use to using a vehicle, and how to drive the car. On the other hand, if the teenager gets their license when they are 18, they are driving a lot more often (jobs, and college) and this could lead to more crashes. "I don't think it matters what age you are," the Hinsdale Central High School sophomore said before hitting the road for her driver's education class, "As long as you have the practice and experience.
