Here in Colorado there is the heinous law you must be at least 15 to drive. Not sure who was high on crack when they passed that but it is just wrong on ALL levels.
First off teens on a neurological basis are NOT ready to drive at this age. They have not matured and are not ready to drive.
They do not understand the importance of paying attention to the road. They are a threat when they get behind the wheel to other drivers on the road and pedestrians because they are more likely to be distracted.
I am highly skeptical you could not get in a car with a teen and not run into a tree or pole. Teens act as highly reckless drivers and should not be able to drive until they are AT LEAST 19 at the minimum.
Just another reason Colorado is a fucked up state and has been for years.
What do you think on this issue?
