The reasons behind peoples opinions to increase the age can easily be debatable and those opinions can be stated incorrect.
The article states the legal driving age varies from county to country, however in some states of of America the legal age is 15 or younger.
More often than not, the legal driving age comes a year or so if not more before the legal age to vote.
[tags: Driving, Driver's license, Adolescence] - The Driving age should be increased to eighteen According to federal driving license laws in the United States, the current legal minimum driving age to obtain a restricted driver’s license varies from state from fourteen years, three months in South Dakota to as high as seventeen in New Jersey.
Many high school teens by this time are out and about in their vehicles, adjusting and learning the rituals of the road.
The text states that driving is a key teenage milestone to becoming an adult, and raising that age will in turn make teenagers less responsible.

Don’t you want to be able to roam around places and probably take extracurricular activities on your own time and hang with friends too.
Being able to drive is what many children in our society think about these days.
Also this argument could be negated by having safer roads, many would agree the latter is more important than setting a teen milestone back a few years.
Both arguments have viable key points, but they also have some major weaknesses.
