16 year old drivers are a danger to themselves

John D'Amico(Illinois State Legislature )- "The answer is raising the driving age. Thats why I introduced legilation to raise the driving age in Illinois from 16 to 18. I realize this idea is controversial, but I could not stand by and watch ome more young person die becasuse he or she was not quite ready to be behind a wheel."

John M. Crisp: Nudging the lagal driving age upwards a bit, that is, in the direction of more maturity, experience, and responsibility, would at least have the practical effect of reducing the number or 16 year olds who are killed each year in auto accident.

16 year old driver could be dangerous to other people. According to John D'Amico All 50 dtates prohibit 16 year old from drinking alcohol, buying cigarettes, and purchasing handguns. Yet most states are willing to put them in charge of a car, which could potentially be a deadly weapon. 37,000 people were killed on our highways in 2008, more than a hundred people everyday. between 1995 and 2004, there were 30,917 fatalities in accident that involbed 15 to 17 year old drivers, according to a study by a AAA Foundation for Traffics Safety. About a third of those deaths were the teen drivers themselves. The rest pedestrians, passengers, and people in cars that teenage drivers struck

The driving age should be changed to 18 becasue 16 year olds get into more crashes. According to John M. Crisp 16 year old drivers have more accident per highway mile than any other age group. And according to the center for disease control reported that traffic accident are the leading casue of death for American teenagers, accounting for about a third of all death in that age group.
