I'm wondering how many of the posters here think there is too much government in our lives?
Too many laws taking away our rights, etc.?
While I do think there a many on the road who are a menace, I certainly do not think that age is the big culprit.
How about cell phones, McDonalds, maps, passengers, music, putting on makeup, being too young and/or immature, being on legal pain meds, drinking and
beverage, smoking cigarettes, gawking at anything that distracts you from the road.
These things are legal to do when driving, at least in some areas.
So, you want to let government stop people from driving once they reach a certain age?
When you do that, how long before some group decides any or all of the above are grounds to not be driving...and want a new law to prohibit?
(NOT saying that folks should be driving and doing the above
People need to be responsible for their actions and activities.
We don't need government telling us when and how to be responsible.
