Theyoung drivers are at higher risk to cause fatalities (Aksomitis,2012).The 16-year-olds carry the highest percentage of accidents relatingto speeding, high rate single vehicle fatalities and the highestpercentage driver error. Research further has it that the 16 yearsolds are three times more likely to cause fatalities than old theelderly.
Inthis regard, the speaker identifies the causes for these facts. Oneof them is the lack of experience for the young people. Also, anissue with brain development affects the infant`s ability to judgeand make decisions on risks associated with fatalities on the roads.At this age, there is the brain part that will still be underdevelopment (Aksomitis,2012).More so, night driving is one of the main causes of accident andfatalities, especially from the young people. The teenagers are morelikely to cause fatalities at night than older drivers.
Thespeaker also denotes that the presence of fellow teenagers in the carincrease the risk and susceptibility for accident occurrence. Theteenagers are usually obsessed with loud music, games, and drinkingespecially when in groups and these increase destructions, a dangerto driving. Therefore, the speaker persuades the listeners, for thesereasons, to persuade her listeners against teenage driving.
