In this essay I will discuss the driving age issue; whether it should be raised to 18 in some countries, or it should be lowered to 16 in others. I will explain and prove why it is better, in my opinion, to have the driving license at the age of 18. Delaying driving age leads to the reduction in car accidents, and the formation of mature drivers. It contributes also in fortifying the relationship between the teenagers and their parents and in improving academic performance.

"In 2002, 200 high-school-age teens --- 140 of them boys --- died in crashes around the state" (OUR OPINIONS: Preventive Medicine Passing Tougher Laws For Young Drivers Won't Punish Georgia Teenagers; It'll Keep Them Alive" [Home Edition]. It's a huge problem we are facing today, and it needs an immediate solution. According to Lund and Koroknay-Palciz, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is working on decreasing these numbers, but it has been very difficult (May 4, 2009, par 10). In my opinion, I believe that raising driving age to 18 is the best solution for the different issues: car accidents, academic performance, and parents-adolescent relationship.
First, the delay in giving driving license contributes in reducing the danger on roads.
