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.
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. Older drivers learn how to break or ignore the pressures of life by adapting to them when driving. Some people believe that the driving age should not be raised from sixteen to eighteen.
Minimum Driving Age The controversy of raising or maintaining the minimum driving age has been an ongoing feud. More recently, studies have emerged supporting the idea of the minimum age being too low, contributing to the high mortality rate of teenagers due to car crashes. The opposing side of this argument believes addressing other areas of issue with teenage drivers is a better option than raising the minimum driving age.
Based on article Car accidents by (Car issues) there are three out of ten teens at the age of 18 cause car accidents. A driving license is an official document from the government which demonstrate that a person can be able to execute and drive a many types of motorized vehicle, for example: car, bus and motorcycle. Despite the fact that driving is hazardous, most teens drive at the age of 18. Driving at this age give them the chance to be independent at a certain point in their lives. Not every teenager can be fully mature enough to deal with this document.
Driving is apart of most teens, and adults lives for many years. There are many exciting moments from getting a license to cramming as many friends in into a car (Zermike 6-7). On the other hand there are terrifying moments from being involved in a car accident, to losing your life, and your friends life. It is important for teens to realize the responsibilities that come with driving.
My third opinion is because they go over the speed limit. Even though parents and others try to make their kids realize that they don’t need to drive, but they do anyway. The parents just want their kids safe so I wouldn’t mind them raising the age limit. 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.
Driving age should be raised Some parents may be proud when they see their children who are still in Senior High School, even junior high school, able to drive a vehicle. But according to Law Number 22 Year 2009 on Traffic and Road Transport, the minimum age of applicant for driver 's license (SIM) is 16 years for SIM C and 17 years for SIM A. In other words, allowing minors to drive means tantamount to plunging them into a legal snare. age factor has a link to the safety context in driving, in this case is the risk of accidents while driving.
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.”
Manufacturing Teen Curfews Mandatory curfews have been instituted throughout the country as a means to help teenagers. Too many teenagers get themselves involved in criminal or deadly behavior. Curfews have been proven to help those young people with decreasing their fun time and increasing their work times. There are those, teenagers in particular, who believe that curfews violate their rights to freedom.
Learning to drive while you are still young makes driving at an older age less difficult. This would also prevent many accidents that could occur. In the not so distant future, the amount of accidents would triple due to the amount of adults attempting to learn what an adolescent should.
In this day in age, young adults seek a way to be rebellious one of these ways is consuming alcohol illegally. By lowering the legal drinking age, parents could make it less of a “taboo” and could teach their children how to drink alcohol responsibly in public places (www.drinkingage.procon.org). Children under twenty years of age, normally obtain alcohol from their twenty-one through twenty-four year old peers. Young adults who are new to legally purchasing alcoholic substances, often buy alcohol for their underage peers. Some people believe that by lowering the minimum drinking age, that will make alcohol consumption less of an uncommon and interesting thing; therefore, less children will want to consume alcohol.
The “Mayflower Compact” was the first self-governing document in American history. This document was written by the freemen traveling on the Mayflower in November 1620. The “Mayflower Compact” formed a self governing “civil Body Politick” which made laws to organise the new Plymouth Colony. This civil body was necessary because the pilgrims landed in the wrong place and therefore did not have a government.
The Truman Show’s plot revolves around the average, mundane, daily life of Truman Burbank. As Truman goes through his seemingly normal life, he is unknowingly being observed by the vast majority of the earth’s population in the form of a television show. However, Truman does not know that his whole life is a lie that is being perpetuated by the creator of the show, Christof, who controls the outcome of every situation Truman is presented with. Truman becomes somewhat aware of the idea that his life may not be what it seems when a girl attempts to tell him the truth. Eventually through a number of discoveries, Truman finds that it is in fact true that his whole life has been contrived by Christof as a form of entertainment for the masses.

Looking through my grandmothers closet clearing, I was tasked with clearing out unwanted belongings. After hours of cleaning, I found a peculiar tan box. Opening it, I gasped as I saw pictures being filled to the brim. The pictures were old, worn out, blurred, having to squint to make out the picture. Looking through the photos, I come across a man I’ve never seen before.
