The victims are teens, but mostly, these accidents happen because of irresponsible adults who get drunk on their way home. No matter what age you drive, as long as you learn the right way in driving, then it doesn't matter even if you are lower than 18.

In my view driving should be prohibited for teenagers.I frankly say that teenagers have not serious thinking about driving, they only have an admire to have a car and organising different competitions which results in crashing and peoples death.

Side: Yes

Actually, it should be 21. The age of 21 has more maturity.
