Auto safety group: States should raise driving age

By MARTHA IRVINE, AP National Writer

CHICAGO - Taking aim at a longstanding rite of passage for 16-year-olds, an influential auto safety group is calling on states to raise the age for getting a driver's license to 17 or even 18.

Adrian Lund, president of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a research group funded by the auto insurance industry, acknowledged the idea is "a tough sell," but noted that car crashes are the leading cause of death among teenagers.

"The bottom line is that when we look at the research, raising the driving age saves lives," Lund said. He plans to present the proposal Tuesday at the annual conference of the Governors Highway Safety Association in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Not surprisingly, a lot of teens hate the idea.

I am not sure statistically, this would reduce accidents or not.
I had more mishaps AFTER age 18 and if I didn't begin at 16, I would have had even less experience.  I failed my first two road tests when I was 16.
