I think the biggest issue with 16yr olds getting their license isn't about technology, there's always been something to distract a driver. But more about how we don't make them responsible for their actions. Kids these days are told how good they do and patted on the back even when they fail miserably at something. At the last horse show I was at, games(speed), they were giving out participation ribbons. I'm sorry but if you lose, you lose, end of story. We are so caught up in not hurting anyone's feelings that we lose that competetive edge that once kept out nation great. It's really not a surprise how our education is failing. What consequences do kids have if they don't suceed in school? Oh you dropped out of school to have to many kids with different fathers, no worry the government will pay you to keep reproducing failures.
Sorry for the mini rant, haha. I'm just getting disgusted with the way people are turning out these days. Maybe it's because I went to a Catholic school for 9 years and had very strict rules and standards.
