Mostly car accidents happen by people who are under 21 which is a reason to raise driving to the age of 21. At that early age teens are still young and less experienced to have the licensee. Car accidents especially by teens get nervous and scared at their first days of driving. Over panicking can make them concentrate less while driving which leads to accidents. The number of Cars are also increasing by teens who are driving at early age which is against the environment which causes air pollution.
The third thing why teenagers can be reckless while driving is because they are not responsible enough to drive. When they are 16 years old, they do not use their frequent heads so when they want to do what they want, and do not obey the law. Being careful is number one thing to drive, so teenagers may not have used their heads yet. adolescents are immature. teenagers can be easily distracted so it is very likely they caught typing driving messages or even eating while driving.
As humans are attached to our phones and it’s getting extremely dangerous. According to DMV.org, Texting and driving is one of the leading causes of death for teenagers. Texting and driving overall is extremely dangerous but especially as a teen. Teen drivers are inexperienced, teens are also the most attached to technology than any other generation. It’s extremely easy for a teen to look away from the road for five seconds to send a text to their friend saying that they are on their way, but what’s not easy is being the friend on the other side of the phone receiving the text, but their friend never makes it to their house because they got into a car accident, and either died or have severe injuries because in that moment sending the text was more important than arriving to the friends house safely.
Or even swerve into a ditch and hit a beam or go into a deep creek. Distracted driving is extremely common in youth. Kids do not understand the dangers of distracted driving. That is why I believe we should have an app on our phones, that when you get into a car the phone powers down. The risk of dying is not worth one text.
Teen drivers are involved in twelve percent of fatal vehicle crashes. Sixteen year old drivers are twenty times more likely to have a vehicle wreck. Teenagers usually tend to take more risks because of their emotions, stress, and peer pressure in their life.

There are numerous cases that involve a person getting hurt or worse, killed, because there was a driver being distracted. Clearly, the government and lawmakers need to create stronger laws to eliminate all distractions that cause deadly car accidents which mainly involve teenagers. “People texting worries me more than people calling people because texting is more dangerous than talking on the phone because you can pay more attention to the road when talking than texting... a ninth- tenth grade boy stated, when you are on the phone you are not aware on what is going on” (Madden and Lenhart 2-3). Places that banned hand held phones are still having trouble enforcing the law because other individuals try to hide their phones and still be on them while driving. “18 states and the District of Columbia have passed the laws banning texting while driving” (Hanes 5).
Abstract This short report explains how influences from peers and parents about drinking and driving shape the views and behaviors of teenagers. Driving while intoxicated is risky enough as it is, but when you add new and unexperienced drivers to the mix, the situation gets even more dangerous. Certain genders and behaviors make it more likely for a teenager to drink and drive or to ride along with a drunk driver. Participants in the studies ranged from fifteen year olds to nineteen year olds from all across the United States. This research shows how easy a teenagers mind is changed by the people around them and the impact role models have.
Today in our fast- paced world, young people think it is a must to send a text or use a cellphone while driving. Every year our highways are introduced to new and inexperienced teenage drivers who are taking the wheel by themselves, when they become of driving age. Many do not recognize the difficulty involved in trying to drive and text or use a cell. On the other hand, some feel they have very busy schedules and texting, unfortunately while driving, is necessary to connect with others, be it loved ones or business related. Our highways are dangerous in and of themselves because of the number of vehicles and drivers on the roadways, poor roads and weather conditions, therefore adding any other distractors more than triple the dangers.
There is drinking, technology, and drug use. But there could be more that you never thought of. First of all there is drinking. Alcohol can affect you in many ways, especially when your driving because your brain isn’t able to think as well when your driving. According to the article “Driving while impaired-Alcohol and drugs” (2015) The driver of the vehicle uses their hands and eye coordination so they need that to pay attention to the road before they cause a bad accident.
Many people die every day in road accidents and majority of them are of teen-agers. Reckless driving and over speeding are two major causes of road accidents. Those who start driving without taking driving classes especially under the age of twenty-one usually cause as well as face a lot of trouble. Many researchers are of the view that driving age should be raised to twenty-one because before reaching the very age drivers usually overestimate their capabilities, they do reckless driving to impress their
Teenagers pose the biggest threat because they are constantly on their phones believing they can simultaneously text and drive. Statistics prove that eight of every ten texting accidents is caused by a teen driver. Making it illegal to use phones when driving would initially decrease this problem. Answering phone calls while driving is just as terrible if not worse than texting. Maybe when talking on the phone you 're still able to watch the road, but your focus is on who is talking to and what they 're talking about.
