About "Driving Age 18"
Affirmative plan tells the states that they have to raise the age for driving to 18 or else they lose some percent of their federal highway funding. The federal government cannot fiat the age directly because it falls under state jurisdiction. Neg will argue that an inexperienced 18-year-old driver is just as bad as an inexperienced 16-year-old driver, and experience is the real issue, not age. Forcing inexperienced drivers to wait until 18 is worse because at that age driver’s education classes are not longer mandatory like they are under State laws for drivers under 18.
The result is worse for safety, not better.
