I was at school today and I overheard a group of teens going on and on about how terrible it is that they have to have auto insurance to drive. They said it's not going to do anything for them because they are under age and nobody can try to make them pay bills. They said it wouldn't make them drive slower or actually follow the laws. It's more fun to speed and go around anyone who gets in their way especially around blind corners.
Yet we give these kids permission to drive.
Imo our society gives teens way too much and expects way too little in return. You have to give them freedom they say but oh, they are only teenagers and can't be held responsible for their actions. What a disservice.
I applaud those of you with teens who actually expect them to earn things like the privilege of driving and freedom. Those who expect more out of them. There's just so many who don't. It scares me to be on the road with anybody, teen or adult, with this attitude.
Do you think under 18 year olds should be driving?
