Teens under 17 shouldn’t be driving, according to Wisconsin professor

Last year, 48 Wisconsin teens perished as a result of their involvement in car accidents, making car crashes the leading cause of death for teens in the state. According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, 6% of all licensed drivers in Wisconsin are teenagers, but this age group causes 16% of all road accidents in the state yearly.

University of Wisconsin civil and environmental engineering professor Steve Noyce, who has a specialty in transportation engineering, said teenage drivers don’t possess enough skills and experience to drive in compromising conditions. Noyce added that some studies they conducted were geared towards finding out whether teens’ brains are developed enough to make good decisions, making him believe that youths should be older than 16 before they start driving.
