It’s Time to Toughen the Laws on Teen Drivers - It’s Time to Toughen the Laws on Teen Drivers        Turning sixteen years old in teenagers' lives is an exciting event. It allows them to get a drivers license and is a big step towards adulthood.  With this, it gives them freedom and control over something they have never experienced before.  In most cases, people stress about gangs, drugs, and violence in our communities as a big result of teenage deaths, but the leading causes of accidents today are teenage drivers, especially sixteen and seventeen year olds.  Maria Purdy, an author for "Teen Magazine", writes about statistics with young teenage drivers.  She sites that, "To equal the number of youths killed in motor vehicle crashes in 1995, a plane with 520 people on board would have to crash with no survivors once a month for a full year" (online).  Legislators should pass a law changing the drivers licensing age to eighteen instead of sixteen.  By doing this, it could decrease driving problems we face today....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Essays]
