Many states are considering legislation to raise the driving age, especially since there are statistics showing that a disproportionate amount of automobile fatalities and other accidents are caused by drivers under the age of 24. While states are not necessarily considering a driving age of 24, they certainly do have justification for raising the driving age to 17 or 18. At the same time, however, many opponents of this idea say that such accidents are caused by inexperience, rather than age.

It depends only on what the president and governor say.

it mostly has in states like California where limitations are placed on a persons driving until 18. i think it is a good thing. As well as the driving age should be though 17. Well In New Zealand, the driving age is 15. The govurnment is going to change it to 18 or 20 at the end of the year.

There is not a federally mandated driving age in the US - the lawful driving age is left up to the individual states.
