18 years & older

Julianne Hellerich

Kids at between the ages of 15-17 year olds have higher crash rates than drivers of any age, They have little experience when it comes to being behind the wheel and i believe this is something we could change.https://www.dosomething.org/facts/11-facts-about-teen-driving
statistics show that 16 and 17 year old driver death rates increase with each additional passenger, and only 40% of teens said they would speak up if someone were driving in a way that made them feel unsafe. https://www.dosomething.org/facts/11-facts-about-teen-driving


I believe that the driving age should be increased from 16 to 18. This will allow young teens to receive their permit and take classes and get more time practicing with their parents before getting behind the wheel. Raising the age limit could decrease the amount of accidents by a minimum of 33%.
