We need to find a new way to inform teens about the dangers of driving, and I propose we do this through showing them in a safe environment. One privately operated example is called B.R.A.K.E.S, which is an abbreviation of Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe. The program is taught by retired race car drivers, and has been available in fifteen states including North Carolina. Students in the course do several activities including: accident avoidance, a distraction exercise, wheel drop-off recovery, panic stop exercise, and a car control and recovery exercise (“About”). The program aims to be fun for teens, allowing them to go way too fast, skid, and learn how dangerous driving distracted is, in a safe environment.
Some will say that "Getting the highest of the high-risk drivers away from the wheel probably isn 't a bad idea," said Dr. Barbara Gaines, trauma director at Children 's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC (Gaines 1). Dr. Barbara is saying that teen drivers are a high risk on the road. If we take them off the road our problems will be solved. This is not true because teens are young and have little experience behind the wheel. Even adults can be reckless for a reason.
Driving today is a major accomplishment, and many people use that license as a badge of honor. In today's society, people as young as sixteen are eligible to apply for a driver's license. But, is that necessarily a horrid thing. There are many people who attempt to rob adolescents of their ability to receive a license. I believe that sixteen year olds should be able to keep their driving privileges because you must learn at a young age, it teaches adolescents responsibility, and it makes it easier for teens to maintain a career.
The driving age should be raised and driving is not all jokes and games it is a very serious matter when you get under that wheel. Some matters are serious like helping family members when their car breaks down or when they need a ride to the store. When a family member calls you should come right away and help them out because they will probably do the same favor for you when you need it. You will show them that you are always their for them when you need them and they will say you are growing up fast. The state should raised the driving age to 16 to 18.
People want it to be raised because older teens are mature and know what to do. However, starting to drive at 16 starts to show teens how to become more mature, it starts to take them to adulthood and show them that they’ll be driving for the rest of their lives. It
“With appropriate treatment most children who commit crimes, even the most violent crimes, can be rehabilitated and become responsible adults.”(Berger) The reason why is because their brains are still changing they are still going throw a change they are still growing. The brain where it “regulates aggression, long range planning, mental, flexibility, abstract thinking has not yet been developed.”(Berger) In the article “Justice for Juveniles” a child is tried as an adult his parents don’t want him to go to jail because they say it is too big for him, and he wouldn’t last a day in there. The judge didn’t bother to
I do not agree that Driving age should be risen because, the driving age is perfect where it is and teaches responsibility, It wouldn't change accident rate, And this would hurt the ability of teens whom have jobs to get to work. However there are people that do think that driving age should be increased to lower the likely hood of teen death in car crashes. Responsibility is a good thing to teach at an early age especially with driving. The age limit has always been sixteen without problem so why change it now. There are teens in the countryside that have been driving more complex machines than cars since they could put a foot on the peddle.
Did you know to go to college at a public in state college is around $78,000 for four years? I think the world need to lower college prices because you need a college education for most good jobs, so poor students that are bright can still go to college, and so you can pay off enormous debt after you get out of college. I believe all kids need an education after high school. Most jobs require some kind of degree. If you want a house and a car after you go to college and don’t want any more debt you need to have a good job to get you through life.
The reason this is an issue is because how are people supposed to learn to drive properly by doing a driving test every 2 years for 4 years. I know for a fact they’re teens that still don’t how to drive fluently without making errors. And i’m not talking about errors like the way you parallel park but the fatal errors like running stop signs and not having to ability to see obstacles that pop up at last moment. Also the driving test don’t
By the age of fifteen a lot is going on in their lives where the parents won’t be able to be there all the time, in addition to being responsible enough to drive is easier for everyone. Also, their minds are still in the developmental stages which makes some of their decisions irrational; therefore, being the cause of accidents they are involved in. Now that cellphones are a big distraction for teen drivers and a major cause of accidents, strict rules should be set for them while driving any vehicle. Maturity, responsibility, and experience are what should determine if a teen should have his or her driver’s license, and these key essentials are what most teens lack at the age of fifteen. Nevertheless, the age should be raised for teens to obtain a driver’s
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.
