SHOULD THE DRIVING AGE IN INDIA BE LOWERED ...............OR SHOULD DRVING AGE IN THE U.S  BE RAISED ????????????????

In India you can get a drving license at the age of 18 years only. When you turn in to an adult , thats when you can vote , marry , drive , drink and do all the things an adult can !!
Although thats the legal driving age , you often see kids below that age taking out there parents car and taking it for a spin !!

While in the U.S , you can get a license at the young age of 15 years ( although it has restriction). And a proper license at the age of 16 years !

Although , my question is also, do you think age - 15 - 16 years is too low for a person to drive . Thats the age when most kids aren't mature enough to be often rationale. Thats the age when you tend to go over the speed limit , and love doing a "dare" like driving with one hand , or hit and run , drink and drive ,etc etc !!

It is said , driving is not a right ..........but a priveldege , so use it judaciously !! Meaning , as a driver you are not in a wonderdfull machine that gets you from A - B point , but it can be a killing machine too if misused .!!

So lets have your opinion , SHOULD INDIA LOWER ITS DRIVING AGE .........OR U.S RAISE ITS DRIVING AGE !!!!!

in USA, you can get driving liscence at 16.
I think India has a GREAT age for getting a liscence.
At 18 you are more responsible and won't do dumb things and result in an accident

well...if u r responsible and capable license can be given at 15 or 16yrs.It is not necessary that at 18 the license will be given...coz u r adult and so on.
Once u think u can take the charge...i feel age is not a matter Tongue Tongue Tongue

i agree... age does not really matter... what matters is matureness... u can be mature at 15, or 29... so i dont think that it really matters. Besides, more people get into accidents that teens.. (i will post the article) so why dont they ban them from getting a DL?.. i think that the driving age in india and america should remain the same.

I think that 18 is good age and I know that in Canada the government is thinking of raising the driving age of 16 to 18 by next year.

i think US has to lower their driving age thing by like 2 or 3 years, because teenagers at the age of 16 who get their license have no clue about the world because they break speed laws n do accidents n drive uncarefully and i really think india has a great driving age-->18, because thats when u turn from teenager to adulthood and u get to know n understand things better
