"Raising the Driving Age from 16 to 18." Debate Topic:. N.p., n.d. Web. Nov. 2012. <http://www.debate.org/debates/Raising-the-driving-age-from-16-to-18/1/>. THE DEBATE:
Should America raise the driving age to 21?
The debate's pros and cons. The pros of raising the driving age. The driving age is way too low. In some states kids can drive as young as 14. The amount of car accidents that happen with minors is CRAZY. There are way too many car accidents with the youth. Allowing children just entering their teens to drive is ridiculous. Many kids look forward to getting their license, and wish they could get it at a younger age, but they are still just kids. They are too immature to be allowed to start driving. The cons of raising the driving age. Teens are four times more likely to get in a car accident than adults - and that's only because of their lack of experience compared to those of someone in their 30's. Some people have had YEARS of driving experience. Raising the driving age would not solve any of this, but merely raise the popular age group for most car accidents. It does not matter if you are 16 or 30, you still need to have experience for driving. Now think of this...... If your neighbor gets caught for stealing a 50,000 dollar wedding ring, should you go to jail? No??
Now,if one of your classmates was speeding while driving, should your driver's license be taken away from you? You answer that.
