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.
Driving Age Acquiring a driver’s license is one of the most awaited milestones of a teen life. Most driver education classes being offered in driving schools or education classes in high schools aren’t thorough enough to teach the teenagers what they need to know when they get behind the wheels. Experience is an important teacher when it comes to driving and the more time they spend in different kinds of roads; the more confident they feel and will be able to respond to stressful or challenging situations. But years of dismaying statistics have made the safety advocates across everywhere to rethink whether 16 or 18 year olds are really enough to get them driving (Aspen, 2016). Legal driving age has been a constant argument as the major reason for death among teens is these accidents happening.
It seems that you’re constantly hearing about another teenager who died in a car accident. Everyone says that they were too young and had so much life left to live, that they were taken too soon and they were going to do big things in the world; however, nothing is done and soon they are forgotten about until it happens again. But how many innocent kids have to die from the leading cause of deaths in teenagers until something is changed. According to an article published by CBS, “More than 5,000 U.S. teens die each year in car crashes” (CBS/AP). The U.S. needs to change something to lower this number.
Did you know 16-year-olds have higher crash rates than drivers of any other age? 56% of teens said they talk on the phone while driving which causes most of the bad car accidents. I think that 16 is too young to drive. For one they are easily distracted with their electronics and Two teenagers are causing a lot of deaths because they are not cautious while they are driving. But some people might also say that 16 is the best age to drive because teens need their freedom.
Drunk driving is a serious problem that continues to take thousands of deaths each year. Too many innocent lives been lost to drunk driving. A death from drunk driving does not only affect the victim but it affects everyone around them such as family and friends. One night, one drink, one mistake is all it takes for drunk driving to take its toll. There are many solutions to prevent drunk driving, but they will only work if we put them into play.
But no matter the experience or how much they have been taught teenagers have one problem, maturity. Stated in passage one, “the new brain research suggests that a...new 17- or 18-year-old driver is considered safer than a new 16-year-old driver.” The drivers age extremely matters because of their maturity, when someone's brain is fully developed with still no experience is much better because of their emotions and reactions. 16-year-olds just aren't ready to take on the responsibilities of driving on the road with others that they could hurt or even
“Only the good die young,” is an aphorism that most have heard, but why is it that the leading cause of death in young people is vehicle accidents? The fact of the matter is that teens, for many reasons, are involved in more fatal crashes than any other age group. Teen driver safety, or the lack thereof, is very problematic in the state of Missouri; teens die senselessly every day due to this problem, and most cases could be prevented if people simply became more knowledgeable. There is a staggering amount of teen deaths every year in Missouri, and the leading cause is car crashes. There are eight broad categories that attribute to this factoid.
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
However, drunk driving accidents and deaths related to them are totally preventable. Once drunk driving can come to an end, more people will feel safer to drive everyday. Drunk driving causes thousands of deaths per year because each day, someone does not think as they step on the gas pedal. Driving while intoxicated causes problems that not only affect the victim lives, but the future of the drunk driver’s life as well. Drunk driving was the main cause in the death of one of the world 's most famous and beloved people in 1997.
For instance, teens think that they’re fearless, which is why they take silly risks unlike mature drivers. Most teenagers think that being able to control the car while speeding means that they drive well. Increasing the driving age will significantly condense car accidents. While some people say teenagers can develop independence, the driving age should be raised to 21 because the level of obesity is high, teenagers are immature, and car accidents are increasing rapidly. Firstly, teenagers are the ones who are most likely to act in such reckless and
According to the article, “Alcohol and Teens” the author explain that “each year, almost 2,000 people under the age of 21 die in car crashes in which underage drinking is involved. Alcohol is involved in nearly half of all violent deaths involving youth. In 2010, 56% of drivers 15 to 20 years of age who were killed in motor-vehicle crashes after drinking and driving were not wearing a seat belt” (Dryden-Edwards). When people drunk they do not know any things about what is happening. They were so fun and forget about their
First, although it may seem cruel to teens, raising the minimum driving age would allow drivers to become better prepared. Drinking is the major problem why teens are in car accidents almost every day. They go to parties, get drunk,
Driving at 16 allows parents to oversee young drivers before they are legally independent adults. Lawmakers may think by raising the minimum driving age that they can minimize accidents, but in actuality, they are depriving teens the chance to learn under adult supervision. If the driving age were raised to 18, kids would be out on their own and learning to drive on their own. At 16, teens are still covered by their parents ' insurance driving closer to home, which offers more support should they get in an accident. Before teens leave home, parents can be sure they have a solid driving history that they can be comfortable with while gaining valuable experience.
In truth, people only half accurate about alcohol causing accident where people are killed. Drunk driving is what’s killing people and older adults drink and drive. It’s as if the blame of drunk driving is only on young adults. Matt Nagin writes, “…According to M.A.D.D. (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), in 2010 the highest drunk driving rates were found amongst those ages 21 to 25 (23.4%)…” (n.pag).
“In 2013, there were a total of 30,057 fatal crashes in the United States that involved 44,574 drivers. As a result of those fatal crashes, almost 32,719 people were killed.” Almost half of distracted driving crashes are rear end crashes which then results in hitting more cars and making those cars go out of control ending in either hitting innocent people or more cars. There are many things the Federal government and the states are doing to prevent this thing from happening. Such as “many states are banning texting while driving, or using graduated driver licensing systems for teen drivers, to help raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and to keep it from occurring.” Also on “September 30, the President issued an executive order prohibiting Federal Employees from texting while driving on Government business or with Government equipment.” I feel as though the government should do some more to prevent teens from using cell phones while driving. It’s not just texting but messing with music, talking on the phone, or even talking to Siri can end in some innocent person getting hurt, all because someone wasn 't paying attention to the road for a split
