What age should the driving law be set at? 16 or 18?

18....sorry 16 year olds. The intelligence levels are dropping, I'd feel safer ( not much safer) if people matured a little first.

No. I'm just speaking for all the people in this situation. But if I didn't have to, I guess it could be 18.

I guess if 16 year olds don't drive they can't get alcohol as easy.

Legally right now it's 16. But what about all those high schoolers that live too far away from school for a bus, and their parents work, they'd need a car, right? so if they change to 18 some people won't get to school. so my answer is 16. but now that I think about it, it doesn't benefit me much, so I change to 18

At 18 I think they would make better choices and be more focused.

i got my liscense when i juust turned 17. But sadly, i wish i could have gotten it a little later because my driving record isnt that great, but ive learned to stop driving so fast. so i think people should get it when theyre 18 or older so they know better.

16 because my stepsister just got her licence and she is very focused I think so it should stay at 16.

Everyone makes stupid choices, so when you say that 18 is safer; not saying that you DID say this, then that's bull-crap. It depends on the kid's driving skills and how well they stay focused. There are 16 year olds who drive like a pro. There are 18 year olds that suck at driving. Plus, they drink and drive, but that can be anyone.

I started driving at the age of 15, and I got my permit at the age of 16. I was not a bad driver at all, around those ages. Now, I'm 18 and I'm driving like a pro. Still, any age is safe, as long as you stay focused and don't do things like, drink and drive.

So, my choice is neither.

18. people just arent responsible these days they drive drunk and just arent careful on the roads. even some eighteen year olds arent responsible enough yet. but that is for the parents to decide.

18. Teenagers these days have lower intelligence, lower maturity, and worse attitudes.

18. I am 18 and finally getting my permit at the end of the month. I preferred to wait because I believe most 15-17 year Oldsmobile are not mature enough. although in some states, when your 15 and you get your permit, you have to have it for a year or so and go through drivers ed, where if your 18 you can get your permit and then the licence on the spot. I don't like that idea and I think they should do the same stuff.

18 definitely. I live in a small town and there have been 4 16 yr olds that died or caused a death in the last two years because of texting while driving. All 4 had their licenses less than a yr. this is not to say older people don't text. But it proves to me the young ones just don't have the experience to juggle a car and phone at the same time, and they don't have the mental capacity to understand/anticipate danger.

I'm 15 and can drive a truck responsibly and I take driving very seriously I think it should be 16 unless your actually mature and take it seriously.

It should go by IQ, then some people would never get a license and there'd be a lot less accidents
