Yeah I also agree with that because an article on Driving Age Should Not be Raised states, "The fact of the matter is driving is based on experience and being able to make good choices." So if you make good choices and have experience and know what you're doing it doesn't matter if you're just 16.
Just like maturity should matter, you can also get more mature from starting to drive at a younger age. On www.debate.org someone stated that,
"Teenagers will get more mature and responsible this way and they will have more experience now that they have started driving, also most teens have jobs which they have to go to and not having license to drive would become nuisance to them."
Also I believe that most teens take their driving license as an achievement and wont over use this privilege by speeding and others stuff, but will be safe on the roads.
Age shouldn’t matter. Maturity should.
"I know others may say that when you're 18-years-old your brain is more developed. Yes that is true, yet your brain is not fully developed until your early 20's." States a article by A.J Rox. That article also states, "The fact of the matter is driving is based on experience and being able to make good choices." So my question is if they are mature why does it matter if they are 16 or 18 if there brain doesn't even fully develop until 20?
“The majority of parents have to take their kids to other activities; they don't have time to chauffeur their kids around.” Says the article Driving Age Should Not be Raised. If they raise the driving age who will get all these young adults to school dances and dates? Their parents? We all hope it won't turn into that… Akward …. Young adults will not be able to get themselves to work, this could lead to a shortage of workers in fast food restaurants, and kids not learning how to work hard. This will affect America for the worse.
