It is true that traffic issues like traffic jam or traffic accidents have been receiving a great deal of social attention due to their negative impacts on healthy people both physically and metally. Although some consider restricting younger drivers act as a deterent for road traffic safer but this can not be viewed as ultimate solution to address traffic proplems.
There are a number of reason why restricting the legal age for driving vehicle such as cars or motorbikes can do more harm than good. First, by raising the minimum legal age for driving cars, teenagers would be less motivated to learn how to drive responsibly at young ages. In fact, if they get older and are busier, they will be more likely to lose their interest of being good drivers, which could potentially diminish road safety. Second, since some teenagers were not allowed to drive even when they were in need, they would choose to break the law regardless, which might put other drivers in jeopardy. For example, if a teenager needed to bring his family member to the hospital in the case of emergency, he would have no choice but to drive, even if he was not prepared to.
Another compelling reason to not raising the legal age is that it is the factor that not ultimately decide to engage in causing traffic accidents. First, underdeveloped traffic systems are also the main cause to contributing to road accidents. Plenty of evidence suggests that in countries having modern traffic systems such as Japan or Germany accident rates is always in low level in contrast in countries where have poor ones. In addition, many people reaching a certain level of driving age have been causing accidents the most non younger drivers. Therefore, governments and educational institution take steps to raising the ware of traffic law, which is key solution to bring back the safety when participating in movement.
In conclusion, increasing the legal age for driving is not the best solution for improving road safety. By focusing improve traffic network as well as educate everyone abide by traffic law will deliver better results.
