Should the minimum legal driving age be raised to 18?
In my opinion, they could raise the age to 21 or older and it wouldn't make a difference. There are good drivers and bad drivers of all ages. Some of the younger kids are more cautious and make great drivers; others are reckless daredevils who should probably never have a license.
At the very least 18 years old. I don't think teens have enough life experience to be driving at any age younger then 18. They do not understand enough about what can happen in a split second, and or how to recover quickly. Also don't think they should be able to drive unless they can afford the insurance, car payment, registration etc. Only then will they truly respect the privilege they have been given.

Why is the legal age to drink 21 in the majority of USA?When the legal age to join the military is 18, the legal age to consent to sex is 16, the legal age to buy pornography and lottery is 18, and the legal age to be held responsible for a signed contract (credit card/house purchase) is 18.

Should people over 75 be allowed to drive. car accidents involving people over 75 have now surpassed the traditional high risk 16 to 25 year old age group. Should people over 75 be subjected to more frequent testing and possibly be prevented from driving by the age of 85.

If an 18 year old is allowed to vote should they not be allowed all the freedoms we have in our nation? Is it fair that states can reduce the drinking age but will lose federal funding for their...

At the moment, in most states this brings up the laws and statutes protecting minors. Regardless of whether or not the minor is "consenting" is null and void due to their minor status. In many states, even an 18 year old with a 17 or 16 year old is illegal.However, a legal case is...
