While many young people do just fine driving automobiles, many others shouldn’t be entrusted with heavy metal weapons on wheels. Driving is a privilege, not a right, and lots of people have paid the ultimate price so that teens without the requisite maturity or judgment can get behind the wheel. Teens constitute only 6 percent of all drivers yet are involved in 20 percent of all fatal crashes. Wouldn’t it make sense, then, to take the keys from our 16- and 17-year-olds?
