16 or18 years old? I personally think 16 but maybe that’s because I can’t drive yet, what do you think? Should you be 18 years old to be able to drive or do you think that it is fine at the minimized age of 16? I hope you haven’t decided yet because I want you to listen. I want you to hear what I have to say and while you are I want you to think about what you have the capability of doing.
First you get the “pleasure” of hearing why you should be 18 years old to drive. As you may or may not know 16 and 18th birthdays are special and maturing ages, but as we all know (I hope) that when you turn 18 you are officially an adult! Whooo! And if you didn’t already know that well know you do, see you learn something new everyday. People tend to have more trust than they do in kids (which I think is unfair and prejudice) thus leading people towards picking age 18 vs. 16. Also because it is more likely that when you’re 18 you will be more mature and tamed than a 16 year old. Which is also prejudice because a lot of 16 year olds happen to be really mature and some 18 year olds aren’t because as I said before they are adults so they might feel like they can do any thing they want.
Guess what I am going to tell you about next? … Go on guess… I’m waiting…. CORRECT! …I think. If you guessed that I’m going to tell you about unicorns and dragons you are Incorrect, but thanks for trying. If you think that I’m going to tell you why you should be 16 years old to drive you ARE correct. And if you didn’t guess at all I think that I gave you plenty of time and you should’ve, but there is no point of going back now so lets just move on. You should be able to drive when you are 16 instead of 18 for more experience on the road. But if you don’t get the option of driving when you are 16 it is like loosing two years of experience on the road or loosing two years of safe driving education. I also believe that it is safe for 16 year olds to drive because their parent decides if they believe that their child is ready to learn how to drive. So if the parents think that their kid is safe and responsible they will most likely decide that it is ok for their child to drive and vise versa because once the wheel is in our hands so is your life.
If you are still stuck between whether you think 18 16 or 18 is better please don’t resort to picking 17! Instead use this paragraph as a tiebreaker. When kids drive at 72 months old (16 years) old they might think that their minds are developed enough to be an adult even though they aren’t. People who agree with this statement might think that their minds aren’t developed enough while people like me might think other wise. I think that it helps their mind developed. It helps it developed independence. Driving at age 16 helps teens gain independency because they will have to get their own body from point “A” to point “B” all on their own. They will break off of the branch of having to always rely on their parents for transportation just like in adult hood like.
Decision time!!! Ok I’ll give you some time to think. Teens should be able to drive the minimized age of 16 and I don’t think that the limit should be raised to 18. If the teenager is responsible, mature, and feels confident of being a safe driver they should at least get the choice or even a chance to drive. So tell me what is your answer? Are you going to hold future adults back from two extra years of experience on safe driving or are you going to let them gain their independency? Now don’t let just me know do something about it I know I am!!! Be a safe driver
