  1. 1. SHOULD THE DRIVING AGE BE RAISED TO 18? Julien lee D 11/15/11
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION <ul><li>Between 1995-2004, there were 30,917 fatalities in accidents that involved 15-17 year olds. (a third of those death were teen drivers. The rest were the people hit by the driver)- AAA foundation traffic safety (nationwide) </li></ul><ul><li>Raising the driving age will just create more inexperienced drivers at 18 instead of 16. </li></ul>
  3. 3. WHAT DO YOU THINK THE MINIMUM AGE TO OBTAIN A DRIVERS LICENSE SHOULD BE AND WHY? <ul><li>I think 17. - the roads would be much safer - holding off an extra year or two for practice would create less automobile crashes </li></ul><ul><li>New jersey is the only state with a 17 year old driving age - crash related deaths are lower than other states - they have tougher laws </li></ul>
  4. 4. HOW WOULD LIMITING THE AMOUNT OF PASSENGERS MAKE THE DRIVER MORE FOCUSED? <ul><li>“ the driver will have fewer things to engage in a conversation while driving”, says Soo Park </li></ul><ul><li>The driver would have fewer things to worry about, such as : - what to talk about next - trying to look cool </li></ul>
  5. 5. WHAT ELSE CAN BE DONE SO THAT TEENS ARE MORE PREPARED FOR THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF DRIVING AN AUTOMOBILE? <ul><li>More restricted driving time. - teens are getting more experience on the road - teens get more comfortable with the road -they know what to expect on the road </li></ul><ul><li>Stopping the use of phones while driving </li></ul>
  6. 6. WHY DO YOU THINK SO MANY TEENAGERS ARE GETTING INVOLVED WITH SERIOUS ACCIDENTS? <ul><li>They are too vulnerable to distractions - adjusting the radio/CD/MP3 player 73% - eating 61% - cell phone 60% </li></ul><ul><li>They’re taking too many risks and they tell themselves nothing is going to happen. - they think they won’t get hurt 35% - it makes driving less boring 22% </li></ul>
  7. 7. HOW DO YOU THINK THE PARENTS OF THE TEEN DRIVER CAN HELP PREVENT THESE ACCIDENTS FROM HAPPENING? <ul><li>“ constant reminder of the rules and continuing drivers’ education until 22.”, says Soo Park </li></ul><ul><li>Practice with their kids more often - more experience on the road - the parents can correct their driving mistakes. </li></ul>
