    Most of the fatalities for kids comes from speed. The States should define a new class of car that isn't able to go over a certain speed (and has other safety criteria) and restrict new drivers to only be allowed to drive this class of vehicle until the age of 17 or 18. You could even drop the age to drive it to 15, in Michigan I was allowed to drive a Moped at 15.

    How come no one ever advocates licensing criteria based on driving *skill* or mental, not chronological maturity? The licensing system in the U.S. is in dire need of a massive overhaul, with higher standards, and better education.

    But, how are the 16-year-olds supposed to drive to my house for some hot lovin' if they don't have a license? Can't be asking them to do something illegal so they can get to my house and do something illegal, can I?
