Although many think the driving age should be raised to eighteen, I think that the driving age should stay at sixteen because of the stated reasons. Keeping the driving at the age of sixteen allow teens to learn about responsibility and independence and gives parents a break of ferrying their teens around. Even though people say teens act immature and more likely to get in a crash, crashes can be prevented by parents stepping in. These reasons
Most teens are able to handle this, but what if they're not? What if this is not the right age? According to various experts, the driving age should be raised because of brain maturity and the safety of teens and their surroundings. To start off, one reason the driving age should be heightened is because of brain capacity. As stated in“Is 16 Too Young to Drive a Car” by Robert Davis, the “16-year old's brain is far less developed than those of teens a little older.” The teen’s brain is not developed until a little farther into maturity.
Legal driving age has been a constant argument as the major reason for death among teens is these accidents happening. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1678 drivers in 2014 have been reported dead aged 16 to 20 years along with some new issues like texting while driving; other mobile usages along with distracted driving (Rogers, 2015). Driving age should remain at 16 as it will make teenagers more frustrated if they wait till the age of 18 and with experience they will get better. Rising driving age will not make much difference as it will only irritate the teenagers who are willing to acquire driving license. College going students doesn’t like to depend on public transport as changing buses and trains tire them out instead having own vehicle gives
The Asia-Pacific Economics Blog notes the young demographic is some of the most engaged, and by extending it to a younger age could fuel their passion for many years. The voting age should be lowered to 16 because youth will vote thoroughly, 16 is a better age to start voting, and voting will provide an intrinsic benefit to the lives of young people. Firstly, it is best for us to lower the voting age because young adults will vote thoroughly and make the right decisions. Alternet says that young voters are likely to vote in much the same way as their parents, not because they are coerced to do so but because or shared values meaning that there will be no worries that irresponsible teenagers will make wrong choices. National
Teens practicing their driving more in general, as well as having more experience in potential serious scenarios, would greatly help the cause. Also, teens discussing serious local accidents can make them more aware of just how possible it is for this dilemma to become their own dilemma. A foolproof way to make teens drive more safely is for their parents to make them pay their own tickets and fines (#9). Ultimately, one of the biggest influences for teens is their family, and how their families drive is no exception. Passengers are a huge problem in regards to teen driving.
The U.S. needs to change something to lower this number. Raising the legal minimum driving age to 18 would help lower the number of accidents involving teens by cutting the amount of teenage drivers on the road in half. Obviously it would be objected by teens who want to drive as soon as they can, but in the long run it could save their lives. Teen drivers are by far the most dangerous on the road, and have the highest chance of getting into accidents. “The rate of crashes, fatal and nonfatal, per mile driven for 16-year-old drivers is almost 10 times the rate for drivers ages 30 to 59” (CBS/AP).
Young people cause wrecks because, they believe it is good to show off with their friends. Also they like to drink and drive. That is how most people are killed now in the world. They should raise the driving age because, at the age of sixteen driving means more responsibilities and to understand that it has risks involved. In today’s society the idea of sixteen and seventeen year olds operating cars has become a way of life.
Underage Tattooing Underage tattooing is an increasing problem all over the world. As well as it being a luxury for teenagers, it is also a shared commonality that includes almost 75% of the world population, or simply just friends and family. Yet, as adults who have been through the - no longer - popular trend of tattoos in the early nineties, teenagers are bringing back the huge craze along with its dangers and consequences. We need to know that fashions from the past could possibly be in the past because of horrible outcomes in the end. Illegally, teenagers between the ages of 13-16 are returning home from a holiday or shopping spree with an unnecessary tattoo, simply because less experienced shops or holiday resorts don’t request proof
If in school students are motivated take driver ed they should do also be motivated to take a course that would give them a voting permit for them to vote if they want. However, the voting permit in my opinion should be for the ones that feel mature enough because voting in the elections is important for many people since new president will be elected. Expecting teens to be more as adult is more difficult because older adults are expecting them to be mature but it helps them in a way in my opinion because they feel that they belong and their voices can be heard as well not just adults older then
Most teenagers look forward to getting their license and permit to be able to get behind the wheel of a car and drive without parents. The problem with this is many teenagers take advantage of that privilege and become reckless drivers. The government has put laws in place which prevents teenagers from driving alone for the first year and keeps laws in place so teenagers can’t abuse there laws. Meanwhile, many adults still argue the safety on the road even with restrictions in place. These laws are here to keep everyone on the road safe not only the new drivers.
Driving at Sixteen Driving at 16 is a right of passage steeped in tradition. For decades, teens have received their driver 's licenses at 16. While some might say this is too young and seek to raise the minimum age to 18, generations of teens have successfully managed the responsibilities of driving. The minimum driving age of 16 should not be raised because it would increase transportation problems, keep teens from fulfilling responsibilities, and prevent oversight of new drivers. Raising the driving age would cause transportation difficulties in families.
The quote is important because it shows how valuable life is and how we must enjoy it as we never know when it might end. I believe that us teenagers are often caught up in school rather than having fun. Edward is trying to tell to get out and explore the world and not worry about the future as it will come fast enough but make memories in the present so that you can have plenty of stories to tell when you 're older. I have tried to live a much more stress free life and enjoy the little things and leave a legacy for myself as the stories and memories as that is all I will have when my time
This demonstration how responsible they are and makes the insurance company believe that they are worthy of lowered premiums. For teens that are responsible for paying their own insurance this incentive pushes them to do their academic best and makes them want to sign up for driving’s education courses. 3) Give your teenager a sensible vehicle – this could mean choosing an older model car instead of a newer model one. It’s no secret that teenage drivers are not as responsible as the more mature drivers so it is a wise idea to purchase them an old reliable car. If they insist on getting a more expensive vehicle have them commit to paying the insurance premiums on their own.
Vaux believes that when teens “stand firmly” by their political beliefs they can “make productive choices more easily” as they are inspired. A counter opinion to this would be that “drugs, sex and train wrecks” get more media coverage so make influencing the younger generation easier. Gauna has again generalised all teens describing them as “vulnerable” yet you don 't have to be young to be vulnerable and many teenagers are mentally strong enough to be perfectly capable of making their own decisions. This lack of vulnerability in many teens prevents them being susceptible to copying poor behaviour as they understand right from wrong, legal from illegal and safe from unsafe. Celebrities can have extremely positive influences, through their publicity and popularity, giving them the power to benefit many, whether they realise or not.
