Why should 16 year olds not be giving the rights to do that? Many people will argue that younger drivers are more immature and aren’t ready to drive. Most accidents on the road are caused by young drivers due to speeding, drink driving, under the influence of illegal substances, on their phones or being distracted by others in the car, most of the time the driver or any of the passengers don’t have their seatbelt on. Some of the public say that teenagers should be allowed to do driving tests but they can’t do there test until their 17th birthday. The public complain that there’s too many drivers on the road and lowering the law to 16 would be chaos.
Whether or not teenagers should be able to drive at age sixteen What is the leading causes of the death of many teenagers in the United States? A Statistics showed that 16-year-old teenagers are three times more likely to die in car accidents than other accidents. In 2008, around 50 billion dollar was the estimated economic impact of car accidents involving drivers who are 16-18 years old. In my opinion, driving licenses should not be given to teenagers under 18. First, when teenagers get their driving licenses, and it’s hard for adult to be able to guide them.
As young drivers are the ones most likely to have accidents, from time to time there are calls to raise the driving age. In the past few years lawmakers in the US states of Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois and Massachusetts have debated raising their driving age, although each attempt was denied (Huffington Post). The British government has also recently considered lifting the driving age in the UK from 17 to 18, although it seems unlikely to go ahead with this change (Huffington Post). The current driving age in Pennsylvania is 16. When a teen gets to that age all they think about is driving, but when they turn that age parents just begin to worry.
Should The Legal Driving Age Be Raised? Most accidents today are caused by young teenage drivers. Most 16 year olds can’t wait to get a license and get behind the wheel of an automobile, that’s exactly how I was also. I'm interested in this matter because of curious reasons as far as what other people think, an how they feel about the legal driving age today. It's a pretty common discussion among just about everybody, mostly teenagers.
Sitting in traffic is one of the worst time consumers of the day. We all dislike wasting our time sitting in traffic when we are late for a meeting or late for a sporting event. My parents have worked with the Department of Transportation in Pinellas County for years and this has been the steaming question for their whole time there “How can we make travel on our roads better and smoother?” Many of their associates have thought that maybe if they just expand the more traveled roads that the ride would become less congested. This may have worked in the short term, but what they did not expect was the 42% increase in population over the last 30 years (US Census). Over the last decade or so, the department of transportation in the Tampa Bay area has proposed and idea for a monorail type system for the main areas of business in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa.
First of all transportation is hard for me after starting college. I am hoping right now to get bless with a car because it’s hard to use the bus to school then to work and any other places I need to go. Now that most of my college work has to be done in school because a lack of materials it’s hard to take a hour bus ride whenever I need to finish work. The bus takes time out of my life and it cuts my time by a lot for me to go to work and all. It’ll be amazing to have a car to help me get places faster and so I can finish what I need to without rushing.

Driving license age limit should be raised to 21? Well, this is a source of much concern; the percentage high of teenage accident on our streets is on a constant rise. Whether caused by the lack of experience, the fact of immaturity, distractions has become all too common among teen motorists. This problem is not going to go away by itself; action needs to be taken.
