Some people think that the best way to increase road safety is to increase the minimum legal age for driving cars or riding motorbikes. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Some people contend that the most appropriate method to rise the safeness on roads is restrict the lowest
age
by law to
drive
vehicles
such
as cars, whereas others argue that there is another efficient way to increase the security on the roads. While I accept that increasing the minimum
age
for people to
drive
cars to some extent, I believe that there are other beneficial ways to reduce traffic accidents for road safety. On the one hand, I agree with the idea that raising the lowest legal
age
is the best approach to decline transportation accidents for some reasons. The young drivers are likely to
drive
cars with high speeds.
For example
, in Japan, people can get
driver
licenses when they are over 18 years old, 18 years old drivers tend to
drive
with so high speeds and their drivings are so dangerous.
Thus
, if they cannot
drive
cars because of the new law in terms of the minimum driving
age
, the roads will be safer.
On the other hand
, I am convinced that away from restricting the driving minimum
age
, there are several more efficient ways for road safety. The chief method lies in reducing elderly drivers to reduce transportation accidents.
For instance
, in Japan, the most reason why traffic accidents happen is old
age
drivers. Another significant way is to raise the difficulty of exams to obtain
driver
licenses to decrease traffic accidents.
For example
, Japanese people can take a
driver
license for only 2 weeks, including paper tests and actual driving tests, and
then
about 95 % citizens have it. If these tests become more complex, the population having
driver
licenses will decline and
also
the restricted population will have better
driver
skills;
as a result
, road safety will increase. In conclusion, in fact, I agree that increasing the minimum
age
to get
driver
licenses is one efficient approach due to above reasons to some extent.
However
, personally, I believe that reducing old
driver
’s population and increasing the difficulty of
driver
’s license exams are more beneficial methodology to reduce transportation accidents.
