My Hypothesis -mhmokaysure

  1. Age of receiving one’s driver’s license.
  2. The age minimum to receive a driver’s license varies per state. 
  3. Driving requires experience, skill, as well as critical decision making in order to travel safely, and even then there are variables out of one’s control.
  4. Cars are statistically the most dangerous form of transportation, yet in some states people as young as 16, being able to acquire a learner’s permit at the age of 14.
  5. The brain is not fully developed until around the age of 25, making it harder to be cerebrally advanced enough to perform highly intensive tasks. 
  6. Due to lack of cerebral development, the minimum driving age should be raised nationwide in order to reduce the dangers novice drivers present to those whom with they share roads.

    This is better than most, mhm.
    But let me ask you this: Is it fair to cerebrally-capable youth?
    And let me ask you this even more unfair question: Shouldn’t you also revoke and refuse licenses to cerebrally-challenged adults regardless of age?
    What sort of test would that involve?
    Understand, I like the boldness of your proposal, but I want you to test its limits.
    —Do we think that 17-year-olds (to pick an age) are UNIFORMLY unfit for driving?
    —And does the 18th birthday magically confer fitness?
    Respond or risk that I will start ignoring you. 🙂
