Driving seems like a simple task, after all most people in the world do it in what seems to be an effortless way. What people fail to talk about are the difficulties of driving after doing it for such a long time, specifically when you reach your elderly years. Elderly drivers are faced with multiple issues when driving on the road, including weather conditions that make them experience fear about driving, medical complications and health status that affect the way they drive, and age-related vulnerabilities that alter the way they used to drive as an adult.

Whilst, the media portrays reports about serious and severe crashes involving older drivers, the real reason that they often leave a bigger impact is the cause behind it. Many accidents that have been recently reported on the news, mention the cause of the accident as a medical episode, therefore there can be no direct blame or fault placed on the driver, as anyone is able to have a seizure, heart attack or lose consciousness.

Car crashes are the No. 1 killer of teens in the U.S. Even more than alcohol and drug abuse, violence and suicide”. Teens are always excited to earn their license and drive out on the road for the first time, but not every time will be a success, it might also be their last.
Reform has been at the epicenter of society for years. Humans are far from perfect, and we must work to improve upon our mistakes through change. One blunder that hangs over our heads is the legal driving age of sixteen, and it is imperative that this wrong be righted. As it stands right now, anyone at the age of sixteen can drive a car, granted that they have supervision. But this measly protection pales in comparison with the bigger picture.

One of the greatest death causes while driving for many years was because of individuals driving under the influence of alcohol. However, alcohol is no longer the only reason why so many deaths are being caused out in the streets while driving. Society is so consumed by this one thing that even while driving it cannot wait.

Everything you do in a car other than driving, such as talking to a passenger, singing a song, or checking your phone are all distractions which can take your mind off driving and cause an accident (Leonard). Having restrictions on new drivers has shown to decrease the amount of crashes caused by teenagers. “The researchers found that States with the most restrictive graduates licensing programs - such as those that required supervised driving teams as well as having night-driving restrictions and passenger limitations - saw a 26% reduction in the rate of fatal crashes involving 16-year-old drivers compared with states without any restriction” (Roan). Graduated licensing programs were linked to 1,348 fewer fatal crashes involving 16-year-olds. These restrictions prevent the teenagers from driving without an adult 21 or older, and with more than one passenger other than family in the car.
Nowadays, crash rates increase as the driving age decreases.

However they tend to decrease as the age rises. The more mature a person is and the more experience they’ve gone through, the less likely they are to be involved in a car crash. Basically, inexperience in driving shows a secondary part in younger ages.
“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.
