In India you can get a drving license at the age of 18 years only. When you turn in to an adult , thats when you can vote , marry , drive , drink and do all the things an adult can !!

Plus, if the age is lowered, wouldn't that mean more driving of cars, more emissions, and more waste of gas and more pollution? I'm only 13 but I still am not confident that I can drive when I turn 14 or 15. Being at an age of 16 is more like you are getting responsible to drive, since you're going to get a simple job and you need to drive there. If we lower the age right now, people might lower if later until it becomes somewhere like 10. I can't imagine young people racing across city streets at 50 mph. There's also all these rules and...
