Yes they are. If govt has made a rule as good citizens of that country we need to adhere to it. Even though he may be a very good driver but he should be barred from driving simply because we should respect govt's laws which are enforced for the safety and scurity of the citizens.

Teenage drivers are involved in proportionately more deadly automobile accidents than just about anyone else on the road, and they are far more likely to crash if their friends are riding along with them, experts say. The reasons go beyond the obvious -- such as drunken driving or reckless driving -- to the simple fact that young drivers lack the experience to judge things like speed and the distance between vehicles. Their propensity toward distraction or risky behavior is compounded with each additional teen in the car, experts say. "They are more likely to do something stupid and crash when they are with their peers," said an expert on highway safety. "A teenager driving alone is an inexperienced driver who is likely to take risks. When teenagers ride together you're adding to the penchant of taking risks. You've got passengers egging on the other driver. You've got an immature driver who wants to impress his passengers."

Teens lack the driving experience and they also tend to believe that they are invincible behind the wheel. They need to understand that driving is dangerous and they need to be responsible.

Teenagers are curious and their blood circulation is very fast, hence they will just do every thing very fast.Hence their driving is also fast.

Yes teenagers are a danger because they give into emotions very easily without thinking about the consequences.However this too would vary individually and depends on the maturity level of the individual.

I think teenagers are more prone to bad driving than others because they do not have good attention spans, are easily distracted, and their reflexes are not as good since they are not fully developed. Teenagers are also prone to making bad decisions which do not help their driving skills - i.e. driving around 5 or more of their firneds in a small car and trying to drive while taking and whatnot to everyone in the car and allowing themselves to get distracted.

I think teenagers should have limitations...like here..not at night unless going from work. Frankly right now the majority of accidents I see are caused by the elderly. I believe that once you hit a certain cut off age. They should go in for yearly driving evaluations..those who pass will retain their license.those who can't will not. I don't think it would be fair to say everyone over 65 can't drive..this what it will be based on ability. We all age differently.
