Lowering Permit Age

I've seen a bunch of websites against it. Half of the people are against lowering it because they assume that half of the teen drivers are a bunch of idiots getting drunk while they are driving or assuming that they are immature. The fact is that their are some teenagers who aren't addicted to drinking and are actually mature. If a kid can drive a go-kart why not an actual car? People don't seem to understand that we aren't all stupid. Teenagers start to mature a lot at the age of fourteen. Instilling heavy educational courses and teachings of safety/danger at a younger age will substantially decrease the amount of accidents around the country. It's not just our class who believes in this, but top educators of the world believe in the more supervised practice you have in anything the more likely you will succeed in whatever that is. So practicing in a parking lot and open roads for an extended period of time and at a younger age with a responsible adult/teacher present at all times can only benefit society. Most parents are usually worried about their kid driving and not having enough time to get prepared. This way they can spend longer time with them from a younger age in order to instill either fear or whatever else it takes to keep the roads safe. Practice makes perfect!

I totally agree with you. If you let a teen drive a gocart then why not a car. You hit it right on the head. You should take that statement to the court and argue that the riving age should be lowered.

I think teenagers should be able to drive not only because I'm one but because we are responsible enough. We won't text on the roads we are'nt stupid or dum. I see many adults texting and talking to people on the phone. It should be lowered to 16 by then we are taller enough to reach the peddles and do what ever it is we need to do in a car. I'm pretty sure that theres many adults that are a lot more stupid and re-cless as us teenagers would be if we were able to drive at 16.

Why not driving at the age of 14 isn't a bad idea because some of us are more mature then our parents so I think we should drive sometimes our parents would probably love 2 give us the wheel every now an then driving at this age will really show how mature teens can be now a days

If kids that are 7 can drive a Snowmobile on tight trails FOLLOWING friends, I think that they should lower the driving age. Uncle Sam wants YOU to support this opinion!

Yes. I'm 12 and I can drive a stick shift. Not all teens are stupid. I mean maybe someone could make an extra lane for younger riders.

I think they should lower the age because not all teens are idiots and dumb like adults say. They think we are immature just because we are young.This could be the time to let the adults know that not all of us are stupid.

I don't think that driving ages shouldnt be lowered b/c some k kids at 16 are barely mature to drive and putting someone else in the driver seat that is younger would be a stupid decision! Don't take offensively!!

No because most teenagers have phones and they like to text and we are already trying to prevent texting and driving so if 14-year olds there would be more wrecks!
   
  Thats my opinion
