I think 16 years of age is to young they should raise the age to 18 that gives them time to grow up

Especially in this day and age. We were more mature at 16 than the kids today. Everything is handed to them and they are not responsible at all. My son had a ticket 3 months after getting his. We turned him around fast.

You should see all the older idiots out there doing 80 plus miles an hour through work zones and elsewhere on the freeway. Hey stupid! Leave earlier so you don't run me over while I'm doing the speed limit and trying not to kill construction workers!! OHP needs to get out of the donut shops and on the highways to actually pull these jerks over and give them a ticket.. not watch them drive by! I should have been a trooper!

maybe they should leave the wrecks on the side of the road for a week or so and the truly mangled cars longer to remind everyone to drive safely. When they clean it all up as quickly as possible they make the road look "safe" and they are not. we need to be reminded as harshly as possible that your and others lives are at risk everytime we drive.

not given, sorry to hear that but i bet they will be exempt from the texting while driving laws..im sure a laptop (MDT) is far more distracting too. but as it goes they'll say YOU were in the wrong place at the wrong time so, its your fault.... sicking isn't it?
